Titans re-sign PK Bironas

Titans OG Steve Hutchinson is going to have arthroscopic surgery on his knee on Thursday and was placed on injured reserve.

Per PFW correspondent Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Fernando Velasco would move to his left guard spot.

In Hutchinson’s first year with the Titans, he started all 12 games he played. He spent the previous six seasons with the Vikings after beginning his career in Seattle in 2001. Hutchinson has started all 169 games he has played.

The Titans claimed OG Mitch Petrus off waivers from the Patriots. He has appeared in eight games this season — six for the Giants and two for New England.
