Quote:
Titans starting defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch won't play in Sunday's game at Houston because of a groin injury.


After saying earlier in the week that Vanden Bosch would be a game-time decision, coach Jeff Fisher said Friday that Vanden Bosch will not play. Instead, Vanden Bosch will rest the groin that has bothered him off and on since Oct. 5 against Baltimore.

"He is out this week," Fisher said.

Vanden Bosch has missed three other games with the injury and did not finish two others before seemingly getting over the injury Nov. 23, when the Titans played the New York Jets. However, he aggravated the injury in last Sunday's win over Cleveland.

Dave Ball and Jacob Ford are expected to split time at Vanden Bosch's right defensive end spot. The duo has combined to produce 9½ sacks this season.

Cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan (hamstring) and Nick Harper (ankle) and linebacker David Thornton (hip) will be probable on Sunday.

Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (knee) and running backs LenDale White (knee) and Quinton Ganther (knee) will be questionable.

Meanwhile, center Kevin Mawae was fined $5,000 by the NFL for his hit on Cleveland's Kamerion Wimbley in Sunday's game. Mawae was penalized for unnecessary roughness on the hit and plans to appeal.

It's a meaningless game for us anyway, so the only way to get any real satisfaction out of beating them is if they are at full-strength.

I agree. The TENNheads already say that we have never really beat them because they had a rash of injuries the year we put the Ws in the win collum. Of course they disregard they years we lead the league in injuries and they beat us "because the Titans were the better team anyway".


That's ok though. I will take a win anyway we can get one.

A team at full strength is rare this time of year. Besides, didnt he miss 3 games already? And they are still 12-1 and the backups for KVB have played decent. This wont be an excuse for them at all.

I wish VB was playing just for the simple fact that I'd like DuaneB to get as much experience against good DE's as possible...

As far as a win holding less weight because KVB is out.....pfft.....

Just take all of the Jaguars fans takes on the last game of the season last year, and that's pretty much what we'll get from Titans fans after Sunday if we win.

Rinse, Repeat.

If one player makes that much of a difference then every game in the David Carr era should be wiped from the books...

I say we wipe those from the books regardless...

Those would have to be some dumba88, toothless and brainless hillbillies that would use that excuse, with the "home field" advantage throughout the playoffs being at stake.


BTW, when backups for KVB have been in there this season, the Tacks' DL hasn't lost a step. In 10 games, KVB has had 4.5 sacks. His subs have combine for 9.5 in the games they played.

Any Jags fan who says that is a moron. The list of players that WE had out of that game due to injury was just as extensive as the list of players they chose to sit, so whatever.

Anyway, I agree it won't diminish the victory if we win.

in related news, Vince Young has volunteered to massage Vanden Bosch's sore areas until Kyle feels all warm and tingly.

It would have been nice to see Brown vs Vanden Bosch round two but even if he had played he wouldn't have been himself. Groins are a tricky injury, just ask Roy Oswalt.

If the Titans lose on Sunday, and the Steelers win, the Steelers control their own destiny as it relates to homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. They can say it's meaningless, but there's no way they believe it.
