Jason Jones: 'I'll be ready'

Defensive tackle Jason Jones sat out practice on Thursday for a second consecutive day with a sore shoulder.

In addition, tight end Bo Scaife was out with a groin injury and defensive tackle Tony Brown is still on his once-a-week regimen because of a surgically repaired knee. Vince Young was out as well with his knee and ankle problems.

“I think we'll see how everybody is tomorrow. I can't predict on the quarterback [Young], but I would think that most everybody else will be able to practice tomorrow,” Titans coach Jeff Fisher said.

Jones, who has been a mainstay on the defensive line after having season-ending shoulder surgery last year, said it is not the same one he had the operation on.

The surgically repaired shoulder is his left shoulder, and he currently is dealing with a right shoulder problem, after landing wrong in Jacksonville.
Jones says he will play against the Eagles on Sunday.

“It's not the same one, and it's not as serious as the left one. I'll be playing in the game. I'll be ready,” Jones said.

In addition to those who did not practice, Kerry Collins (finger) and Chris Johnson (thigh) practiced fully on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday.

Jason McCourty (forearm) and Justin Gage (hamstring) both practiced again on Thursday, but have missed game time the past few weeks with their respective injuries.
