NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Two developments at Titans headquarters today worth noting:

The team put linebacker Josh Stamer on injured reserve with a groin injury, but replaced him with a player who should be able to pick up a lot of Stamer's special-teams duties. Tight end Casey Cramer, until recently a Miami Dolphin, is back with the team. He was a valuable special-teamer for the Titans in 2006 when he played in 15 games. He played in five games in 2007.

Meanwhile, defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch said he's encouraged by his progress following lower abdominal surgery the week of Dec. 15. He's running some as part of his rehabilitation and could resume practicing next week. He said he's pain free but does not yet know how his abdomen and the connected groin problem will respond to football action yet.

While he hopes to be ready for the Jan. 10 playoff game, he said if he's not it's possible another week would have him ready for the AFC Championship Game if the Titans advance.
