Fisher won't commit to Scaife being active

On Monday, Titans coach Jeff Fisher was non-committal when asked if tight end Bo Scaife would be back on the game-day active roster this Sunday when Tennessee travels to face the Kansas City Chiefs.

Scaife and defensive back Vincent Fuller were both healthy scratches in Sunday's victory over the Houston Texans, and Scaife did not comment afterwards about his benching.

“I don’t know. I’m obviously going to try and work out and create a situation where he can come back and help us,” Fisher said of Scaife. “I’m going to continue to let Cookie (Jared Cook) play, but it’s going to be a week-to-week thing here for the next couple of weeks.”

Scaife has 36 receptions this season, third on the team, and had two touchdown catches last week against Indianapolis, but might have played his last game with the Titans, given that he will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end.

Scaife was Tennessee's franchise player in 2009 and made $4.46 million. Due to no salary cap, he was a restricted free agent this year and received 110 percent of that as his tender this season.

Fisher said he did not talk to Scaife or Fuller on Monday about their future status, but did say Scaife's comments about a divided locker room regarding Vince Young were not the reason he was inactive against the Texans.

“It had nothing to do with the fact that he was inactive. We had talked earlier, actually very, very early in the week about getting Cookie more playing time,” Fisher said.
