A weekly look at the Titans' snap counts from Sunday’s game:

Offense, 73 snaps

LT Michael Roos, 73
LG Andy Levitre, 73
C Brian Schwenke, 73
RG Chance Warmack, 73
RT Byron Stingily, 73
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, 73

WR Nate Washington, 53
WR Kendall Wright, 47
TE Delanie Walker, 51
TE Craig Stevens, 43
RB Chris Johnson, 39
WR Justin Hunter, 37
RB Shonn Greene, 27
FB Quinn Johnson, 23
TE Taylor Thompson, 19
WR Damian Williams, 12
RB Jackie Battle, 7
WR Michael Preston, 7

That’s a good workload for Stevens, who was very involved in the success of the run game. Coordinator Dowell Loggains worked in a nice mix of receivers and running backs, with a good distribution of snaps for the guys at those positions -- outside of the use of Jackie Battle as a receiver split wide, which I now bemoan for a third time in this space.

Defense, 58 snaps

FS Michael Griffin, 58
CB Jason McCourty, 58
SS Bernard Pollard, 58

CB Alterraun Verner, 54
DE Derrick Morgan, 51
LB Moise Fokou, 51
DT Jurrell Casey, 49
CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson, 34
LB Zach Brown, 33
DE Ropati Pitoitua, 32
DE Kamerion Wimbley, 31
LB Colin McCarthy, 29
DT Sammie Hill, 28
DE Karl Klug, 21
LB Akeem Ayers, 20
FS George Wilson, 12
DT Antonio Johnson, 10
DT Mike Martin, 9

Morgan got a heavy workload and had five tackles, a sack and two additional quarterback hits. Ayers was minimized in this game as the Titans continue to shuffle linebackers, making the case they don’t have three good ones. A week after he played 43 of a possible 68 snaps, rookie linebacker Zaviar Gooden was inactive to make room for an extra receiver. That receiver, Michael Preston, played seven snaps on offense and five on special teams.
