The Tennessee Titans have deactivated right tackle David Stewart against the Tampa Buccaneers due to a calf muscle along with middle linebacker Barrett Ruud. Stewart hurt his right calf in a 23-17 loss to Atlanta last week, and he is missing only his second start since moving into the lineup in 2006. He missed a start due to an injury in 2009. Ruud is missing his second start this season after aggravating an injured groin. Rookie Colin McCarthy will start in his spot. The Bucs deactivated defensive end Michael Bennett, who had been doubtful with an injured groin. Da'Quan Bowers is starting at left end. The Titans also sat running back Jamie Harper and receiver Donnie Avery. The Bucs other inactives include receiver Michael Spurlock.
