This will be the first game Pro Bowl linebacker Vontaze Burfict has missed in his NFL career. The second-year backer out of Arizona State had played in 36-straight games (including playoffs), but that streak is now broken after he suffered a concussion in Week 2 vs. Atlanta. That was Burfict's second concussion in two weeks.

Also inactive is starting right guard Kevin Zeitler. Mike Pollak will start in his place.

Tennessee Titans

LB Akeem Ayers

DT Mike Martin

WR Kris Durham

WR T.J. Graham

QB Zach Mettenberger

T Byron Stingily

Titans cornerback Jason McCourty will play today. He was a limited participant during practice this week, and was listed as questionable on the team's final status report. McCourty, playing his sixth season since being selected in the sixth-round of the 2009 NFL draft, suffered a groin injury during Tennessee's 16-point loss to the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.

McCourty felt better as the week progressed, and his streak of 37 straight starts is kept alive.
