Receiver Damian Williams also was inactive due to a violation of team rules.
Veteran Kenny Britt was expected not to play for the second week in a row, but he will be active in Hunter's place.
Hunter has been an increasingly effective weapon for the Titans. He caught six passes for 109 yards on Nov. 24 in Oakland and four for 114 yards last week at Denver.
The Titans selected Hunter in the second round of April's draft.
