Titans sit rookie Hunter for violating team rules

The Tennessee Titans have deactivated rookie wide receiver

Justin Hunter against the Arizona Cardinals for what a team

spokesman called a violation of team rules.

Hunter, a second-round draft pick out of Tennessee, is coming

off the best game of his career with 114 yards receiving in last

week’s loss at Denver, and he has had two 100-yard games in his

past three.

The Titans also deactivated receiver Damian Williams, leaving

Kenny Britt active.

The Cardinals scratched tight end Rob Housler, who had been

doubtful with an injured groin. Jake Ballard is starting in his

spot.
