Titans' McCarthy out Sunday with concussion

National Football Post

Colin McCarthy is arguably the best player on the Tennessee Titans not-so-good defense.

But for the fifth time in 12 games this year, the Titans are prepared to play a game without their starting middle linebacker. The Titans host the 10-1 Houston Texans on Sunday.

McCarthy did not practice all week and will be out Sunday, according to TitanInsider, due to a concussion suffered last week vs. Jacksonville.

The linebacker has missed four other games this season due to a high ankle sprain suffered in the season opener.

To replace him on Sunday, the Titans will try two different players, using Tim Shaw in the base package and Will Witherspoon in the nickel.
