McCourty won't be in Titans' secondary
By Paul Kuharsky
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Greetings from LP Field, where the Titans will try to slow the Saints today minus starting cornerback Jason McCourty.
McCourty’s recovering from a concussion suffered last week in the win over Buffalo.
Alterraun Verner has been part of the nickel package and will start. That’s not a huge drop off. But now undrafted rookie Chris Hawkins from LSU will come in as an outside corner in nickel.
If I’m the Saints I look to test Hawkins early and often.
New Orleans is without defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis. Tim Johnson will start in his place.
A note from the three other teams of the AFC South:
