The NFL this year has begun keeping track of player participation data on a weekly basis and releasing it to the media. Here's how they have the Titans lining up in Week 13's home loss to the Texans. Offense (75 total) QB: Jake Locker 75 RB/FB: Chris Johnson 72, Quinn Johnson 4, Darius Reynaud 3 TE: Jared Cook 64, Craig Stevens 21, Taylor Thompson 9 WR: Nate Washington 68, Kenny Britt 66, Kendall Wright 54, Damian Williams 14 OL: Deuce Lutui 75, Fernando Velasco 75, Michael Roos 74, Mike Otto 72, Kevin Matthews 52, Steve Hutchinson 24, David Stewart 3 Defense (73 total) DE: Derrick Morgan 55, Kamerion Wimbley 37, Jarius Wynn 25, Scott Solomon 16 DT: Jurrell Casey 60, Sen'Derrick Marks 58, Mike Martin 19, Karl Klug 8 LB: Zach Brown 71, Akeem Ayers 55, Tim Shaw 42, Will Witherspoon 31 CB: Jason McCourty 73, Alterraun Verner 73, Coty Sensabaugh 18 S: Michael Griffin 72, Jordan Babineaux 65, Robert Johnson 17, Al Afalava 8 Xavier Adibi, Patrick Bailey, Beau Brinkley, Tommie Campbell, Collin Mooney, and Tracy Wilson each  appeared only on special teams. Matt Hasselbeck was active but did not appear in the game. Analysis:   1. The "limiting Chris Johnson to about 50 snaps" thing? Completely out the window. Then again, when you only run the ball 3 times in the second half, resting your back isn't as big a deal. 2. Lots of things were screwed up by injuries. That probably meant more snaps for Kendall Wright especially after Damian Williams went down, more snaps for the other defensive ends after Kam Wimbley went down, and of course the offensive line was all screwed up. 3. Hello, Jared Cook. The game in Miami where you played fewer snaps than Taylor Thompson seems like it was a long time ago. On those 64 snaps, which include plays negated by penalty, he was thrown the ball 15 times. The Titans threw a lot of passes, so he didn't hit the Randy Ratio, but that's an awful lot of attention. Also, apparently the Titans didn't really use that many 2-TE packages, given Craig Stevens' snap total. 4. Even with Kam Wimbley's injury, the Titans gave their backup defensive ends more work than they're used to seeing. 5. Tim Shaw's snaps + Will Witherspoon's snaps = 100% playing time. They might have been on the field at the same time. They probably were. But the Titans did something pretty close to what they said they'd do, playing Shaw in base and Spoon in nickel. 6. The safety rotation? Yeah, it ended up not being that much of a rotation. All of them played in the first two series, but Babineaux was basically your starter. From what I saw of Johnson, I think when he was on the field it was normally (often? sometimes?) a three-safety package.
