The Titans have released their list of inactives for this afternoon’s game against the Patriots and it includes the following names:
CB Cortland Finnegan, S Vinny Fuller, CB Nick Harper, G/C Leroy Harris, WR Lavelle Hawkins, DE Jevon Kearse, DT Sen’Derrick Marks, TE Craig Stevens
Jason Jones returns to his normal spot in the starting lineup, I assume. The listed lineup changes are Ryan Mouton for Finnegan and William Hayes for Jevon Kearse. Jason McCourty should get the start opposite Mouton. With Harris being out, rookie OT Troy Kropog makes his regular-season debut.
The Patriots will be missing DT Ron Brace, WR Joey Galloway, OT Matt Light, OL Rich Ohrnberger, S James Sanders, RB Fred Taylor, LB Adalius Thomas, and CB Terrance Wheatley. As mentioned in Drexel’s Q&A, rookie OT Sebastian Vollmer will probably start at LT in place of Light. As with Tony Ugoh, that should be a matchup the Titans can exploit.
