    The Titans will be without middle linebacker Moise Fokou for a second straight game, as he was ruled out for this week due to a knee injury.

    Listed as questionable were: safety Michael Griffin (quad), tackle David Stewart (shoulder), linebacker Zaviar Gooden (hamstring), defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (calf) and tight end Craig Stevens (back).

    Stevens was sore following Thursday’s practice.

    Listed as probable were: defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (ankle), linebacker Patrick Bailey (hamstring) and defensive end Derrick Morgan (shoulder).

    Titans coach Mike Munchak sounded optimistic about the chances of all the questionable players for Sunday except for Griffin, whose status remains uncertain. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, and was limited on Friday.

    “He did a lot with the scout team and a little bit on defense,” Munchak said of Griffin’s work on Friday. “He moved around better than we thought. So we’ll see how he responds tomorrow and make a decision on Sunday.”

    Griffin has never missed an NFL game, playing in 103 straight since he was drafted.

    “That makes it even harder,” Munchak said of possibly sitting Griffin this weekend. “But again, if he’s not ready, we’re not going to put him out there.”

    Griffin was in the training room Friday afternoon and not available to the media, but he offered this statement to the team’s public relations staff: “It’s getting there. It’s getting to where it needs to. Would I say I’m 100 percent? No. but I’m getting there.”

    If Griffin doesn’t play against St. Louis, his spot will likely be filled by George Wilson.

    When Munchak was naming all the injured guys all he named was Fokou and Griffin, those were the only 2 he knew were dinged up. All the other names he had fed to him, so Im gonna assume all those guys play, even Griffin.

    Why has Gooden been so banged up? I was excited to see him in action. I hope Crutches isn't spreading his glassbones like a disease to other linebackers.
