The Tennessee Titans will not have No. 1 receiver Kenny Britt when they take on the Houston Texans on Sunday. Britt had been listed as "questionable" with an ankle injury Other key inactives include New England Patriots guard Logan Mankins, Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Glenn Dorsey, New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller.
Key players who are toughing it on Sunday are Buffalo Bills running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. Jackson had missed the last two games with a knee injury, while Spiller suffered what appeared to be a very serious shoulder injury last week. The St. Louis Rams will also have running back Steven Jackson, who had been "questionable" with a groin injury. The Rams have two games this week, so expect Jackson's workload to be limited, with rookie Daryl Richardson picking up some of the carries against the Seattle Seahawks.
Here are the full inactive lists for the early afternoon games in Week 4.
