The Tennessee Titans will be without middle linebacker Colin McCarthy for the second consecutive game because of a concussion.
McCarthy was held out of practice Friday after practicing on Wednesday and Thursday.
According to Coach Mike Munchak, McCarthy's progress was not what it needed to be in order for him to play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
“We're not happy with here he's at right now, and it's probably good to rest him for another week,” Munchak said. “He's progressing, but with more activity, he's just not ready to play in a football game. … He needs to be a little better than he is right now in order to play in a game on Sunday. So we just ruled him out.”
It will be McCarthy's sixth game out this season, as he has missed four games due to a high ankle sprain that has bothered him virtually all season.
“It's been a tough year for him. It's been frustrating for Colin and for the team,” Munchak said.
Receiver Damian Williams is also out with a hamstring injury and Munchak left open the possibility of promoting practice squad receiver Michael Preston to the 53-man roster for Sunday's game.
Left tackle Michael Roos returned to practice on Friday with his sprained knee and is listed as questionable. He is on track to play Sunday, however.
