Tennessee Titans inactives

Who won't play in tonight's game.

Wesley Hitt

For the Tennessee Titans final (real) preseason game, there are only five inactives according to the Titans twitter account.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Titans?src=hash">#Titans</a> scratches: LB C. McCarthy, C C. Spencer, C G. Ikard, DL A. Johnson, DL M. Martin <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/TENvsATL?src=hash">#TENvsATL</a></p>&mdash; Tennessee Titans (@TennesseeTitans) <a href="https://twitter.com/TennesseeTitans/statuses/503296637964648448">August 23, 2014</a></blockquote>

So that is:

- Colin McCarthy LB (likely to IR)

-Chris Spencer C

-Gabe Ikard C (to IR on Tuesday)

-Antonio Johnson DT

-Mike Martin DT

What does this mean for the Titans: Well, there will definitely be a deficit at center with Ikard and Spencer out, and that will be a situation to watch. Other than that, Charlie Whitehurst probably won't play tonight with a finger injury, but he is in uniform.

It will be interesting to see how Mettenberger does with the number two unit tonight (he had a great showing last week). With Whitehurst seemingly out, it looks like the Titans will be able to see him in a number of situations with a talented second group of offensive weapons including Bishop Sankey, Taylor Thompson, Chase Coffman, and possibly Justin Hunter depending on how they decide to play him tonight.
