Injury news for Steelers favors Titans
By Paul Kuharsky
The Titans already drew the Steelers at a favorable time in the season. Tennessee is one of four teams to face Pittsburgh during Ben Roethlisberger’s suspension.
Now the injury news from Pittsburgh following the Steelers' overtime win over Atlanta is also favorable to the Titans in their Week 2 matchup.
Starting left tackle Max Starks is expected to be out of action for at least a couple weeks with a high ankle sprain, meaning Jonathan Scott will likely play in his spot. The team’s starting right tackle, Willie Colon, suffered a season-ending Achilles injury during the summer and has been replaced by Flozell Adams.
Tennessee’s defensive line was excellent against the Raiders, and could add end William Hayes, who was out of the Oakland game because he tweaked a previously sprained knee last week.
It’ll be hard to take one of the ends who played Sunday out of the mix, as Jason Babin, Dave Ball, Jacob Ford and Derrick Morgan all contributed.
