The Tennessee Titans placed veteran guard Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve because of an injured right knee and claimed guard Mitch Petrus off waivers from New England on Wednesday. Hutchinson hurt his knee last week in a 24-10 loss to Houston and will have surgery Thursday. He becomes the fourth of Tennessee's five starting offensive linemen at the start of training camp placed on injured reserve with only left tackle Michael Roos still active. Roos did not practice Wednesday because of his own sore right knee. The 6-foot-3 Petrus was a fifth-round pick from Arkansas by the Giants in 2010. He was waived by the Giants after the eighth week and signed by the Patriots on Nov. 13. He has played in 29 career games. The Titans (4-8) visit Indianapolis (8-4) on Sunday. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

Not a good sign for the remainder of...

Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts: Week 14 NFL Pick

Tennessee Titans (4-8) at Indianapolis Colts (8-4) Last week, I bet against the Colts because I felt they were an overrated team and the Lions were an underrated team. I felt the Colts were overrated because they’ve had a very easy schedule and they’ve actually had a -43 points differential despite their then 7-4 record. They’ve won just 1 game by more than a touchdown, but...
