Titans-Colts Inactives: Rishard Matthews won’t play vs. Indianapolis

New, comments

Big loss for Tennessee.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

As feared, Titans’ leading receiver Rishard Matthews is inactive today against the Colts. This will put added stress on Corey Davis and Eric Decker, who are likely to get bumps in targets today. I’d expect Harry Douglas to play plenty as well.

Delanie Walker is finally healthy once again, so we should see him start to get back into a groove here soon. Maybe that starts today with Matthews out.

This is obviously bad news for a team that is struggling to find their rhythm in the passing game as it is. Maybe this means a breakout game for Davis, but he and Mariota don’t seem to be on the same page yet. We’ll see.

Here’s the full list of inactives for the Titans.

One interesting note: Jalston Fowler won’t play today. How will that shake the offense up?

Here’s the list for the Colts.
