The Tennessee Titans take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road Saturday night, with the winner claiming the division title and the loser preparing for the offseason.
Ryan Tannehill INJURED RESERVE and Derrick Henry ACTIVE for Titans – Jaguars
- Tennessee Titans
The Titans are 30th in the league in passing offense with 171.8 yards per game and 15th in rushing offense with 124 yards per game this season.
Tennessee ranks 28th in the league in scoring offense (17.6 points per game) and 15th in scoring defense (21.2 points per game). Ryan Tannehill has completed 212 of 325 passes for 2,536 yards, 13 touchdowns, and six interceptions.
He ranks fourth on the team with 98 rushing yards and two touchdowns, despite being sacked 33 times this season.
Malik Willis has completed 31 of 61 passes for 276 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions while gaining 123 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Joshua Dobbs is 20 of 39 for 232 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, with 12 yards rushing.
He’ll be the starting quarterback in this game. This season, Derrick Henry leads the team with 319 carries for 1,429 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Tannehill (ankle) will miss the rest of the regular season following surgery last week. At this point, his status for the postseason, should Tennessee qualify, is hazy at best.
Davontae Harris (hamstring) and Tarell Basham (back) did not practice on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Burks (groin), Simmons (ankle), Petit-Frere (ankle), Cole (ankle), Fulton (groin), and Hooker (knee) were all limited on Wednesday. Keep an eye out for updates on these players’ statuses as the game approaches.
- Jacksonville Jaguars
While Tennessee has been struggling, Jacksonville has extended their winning streak to four games after routing Houston on the road last week to take over first place in the division.
The Jaguars have evened their record at 8-8, but a win here would give them the division title and the fourth seed in the playoffs.
Jacksonville dominated Houston, leading 7-0 after the first quarter and 21-0 at the half en route to a victory that they didn’t have to defend the rest of the way.
The Jaguars won the total offense battle 337-277, the first down battle 20-13, and the time of possession battle 30:30 to 29:30. Jacksonville turned the ball over twice while only forcing one takeaway, a scoop-six.
When the Jaguars’ injury report was released Wednesday afternoon, it was relatively light. The only player who did not practice was long snapper Ross Matiscik (back).
Practice was limited for defensive back Andrew Wingard (shoulder), guard Brandon Scherff (abdomen/ankle), linebacker Travon Walker (ankle), Lawrence (toe), safety Rayshawn Jenkins, and defensive end Foley Fatukasi (ankle).
Keep an eye out for updates on these guys throughout the week.
