Titans LB Colin McCarthy out again with concussion

Tennessee middle linebacker Colin McCarthy will miss his second

consecutive game because of a concussion, and his sixth overall,

when the Titans visit the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

McCarthy was held out of practice Friday after practicing some

Wednesday and Thursday.

”We’re not happy with here he’s at right now, and it’s probably

good to rest him for another week,” coach Mike Munchak said.

”He’s progressing, but with more activity, he’s just not ready to

play in a football game. . He needs to be a little better than he

is right now in order to play in a game on Sunday. So we just ruled

him out.”

McCarthy, a defensive captain, missed four games previously this

season because of to a sprained right ankle.

”It’s been a tough year for him. It’s been frustrating for

Colin and for the team,” Munchak said.

But left tackle Michael Roos returned to practice Friday with

his sprained right knee and is questionable. Munchak expects Roos

to play against the Colts, and the Titans need him as the only

starter from the offensive line from training camp not on injured


The Titans (4-8) also ruled out receiver Damian Williams with a

hamstring injury. The Titans promoted receiver Michael Preston from

the practice squad Friday and waived fullback Collin Mooney.

Defensive end Kamerion Wimbley (toe) is questionable along with

running back Jamie Harper (ankle) and receiver Lavelle Hawkins

(ankle). Jake Locker (left shoulder) is probable after practicing

all week along with tight end Jared Cook (neck) and receiver Kenny

Britt (knee).
