The final injury report is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, and here's what it looks like:
OUT: DT Casey Hampton (hamstring), OT Max Starks (ankle)
DOUBTFUL: WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadricep), LB Jason Worilds (shoulder)
PROBABLE: WR Arnaz Battle (knee), QB Byron Leftwich (knee), CB Bryant McFadden (groin)
In the Q&A posted earlier today, Blitzburgh Blog addressed the likely impact of Hampton and Starks being ruled out. Jonathan Scott steps in for Starks, while Chris Hoke plays NT. The Steelers do have good depth on the defensive line, and second year man Evander "Ziggy" Hood is a player to watch. Jonathan Scott started eight games at right tackle for the Bills last year and managed a mere 7.5 blown blocks leading to sacks, but is a better run blocker. Expect lots of Rashard Mendenhall and not much of Dennis Dixon throwing the ball down the field.
OUT: OT Mike Otto (knee)
QUESTIONABLE: DT Tony Brown (knee), DE William Hayes (knee)
Otto misses his second straight game. Both Brown and Hayes fully participated in practice on Friday, and Hayes did on Thursday as well. Though players listed as questionable are expected to play about half the time, I'd expect both Brown and Hayes to be in the lineup on Sunday.
Today, we'll switch roles, with Total Titans asking the questions and Blitzburgh Blog providing the insightful responses.
Part II of this week's Q&A exchange....after the jump.
Last Sunday, I made my annual pilgrimage to LP Field to see the Titans play. Unlike my previous three times seeing the Titans, in Indianapolis last December, against Houston in Week 2 last year, and the playoff game against the Ratbirds, they came away with that 38-13 victory. Rather than writing a true recap post, I thought I'd give a list of various things I noticed and have seen about the game:
