Titans thin on D-line for Texans' game

HOUSTON -- The Titans' pass rush will have a depth test today at Reliant Stadium against the Texans. Standout pass rushers Jason Jones (knee) and Dave Ball (concussion) are out.

Sen’Derrick Marks will replace Jones and Jacob Ford will replace Ball.

Those guys can be fine, but the Titans are thin behind them. They will play with three ends and with Marques Douglas as the fourth defensive tackle.

Houston will start rookie Darryl Sharpton over Zac Diles, who’s been sick.

The roof will be open.

A look at the complete inactive lists:

#Titans inactives: Kenny Britt, Robert Johnson, Troy Kropog, Lavelle Hawkins, Jason Jones, Dave Ball, David Thornton, Chris Simms.

Texans: Matt Leinart, Brice McCain, Xavier Adibi, Kasey Studdard, Malcolm Sheppard, Jesse Nading, Owen Daniels, David Anderson. #NFL
