Six Titans Players Ruled Out For Dallas Game, Possibly More


Titans head coach Jeff Fisher has ruled out cornerback Ryan Mouton (ankle), offensive tackle David Stewart (knee), safety Nick Schommer (hamstring), linebacker Josh Stamer (groin), wide receiver Chris Davis (hamstring) and defensive tackle Jason Jones (foot) for Friday night's third preseason game in Dallas.

Other players will fill in for the Titans return game due to Mouton's ankle injury this week. Fisher said Rafael Little and Tuff Harris would return punts, while Javon Ringer, Jason McCourty and Little would handle kickoff duties.

Linebackers Stephen Tulloch and Colin Allred, along with offensive lineman Doug Datish (soreness) and nickel back Vincent Fuller did not practice this week. They are doubtful to see action for the Titans.

Cowboys No. 1 receiver Roy Williams is expected to be in the lineup against the Titans despite suffering a sprained wrist in practice earlier this week. Elsewhere on the injury front for Dallas, cornerbacks Terence Newman (groin) and Mike Jenkins (ankle) are both slated to play on Friday after missing the Oakland game
