Mike Vrabel said after practice that Jack Conklin, Harold Landry, Rashaan Evans and Kendrick Lewis are all out for the Titans. This isn’t great news, but we expected it. Terry and I predicted that last night on Locked on Titans (listen here).
The good news is that Derrick Morgan was a full go at practice and is expected to play. Here is what he said about being available to play:

The Titans are going to be thin at OLB with Morgan being, presumably, on a pitch count. Brian Orakpo is healthy, and Kamalei Correa will have a huge role in this one, but behind those guys you only have Sharif Finch and Aaron Wallace. How do you feel about those guys in a real game?
It sounds like Evans has a real chance to be ready for the Texans game next week. There is a chance Landry could be ready, but he seems like more of a long-shot.
