The biggest injury news for the Titans is that they’ll be playing without Logan Ryan today and for the rest of the season. Ryan was lost in last week’s win over the Giants. It’s going to be interesting to see how the secondary lines up with him out of the lineup. Third year man LeShaun Sims will play, but Adoree Jackson took some reps out of Ryan’s slot position last week.
Brian Orakpo and Sharif Finch were ruled out earlier in the week, making the Titans really thin on the edge.
The good news is that safety Kenny Vaccaro will return after a concussion last week. His presence will be huge in stopping Adrian Peterson and Josh Johnson on the ground. Tajae Sharpe will also be available.
Washington has been crushed by injuries all season long. As you probably know by now, we won’t see Alex Smith or even Colt McCoy in this one. They’ll turn to Josh Johnson to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
Both tight ends Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis were ruled out earlier in the week.
