Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright has missed his third straight practice with a rib injury and isn't expected to play Sunday at Green Bay. Wright is listed as questionable on the Titans' injury report. Linebacker Colin McCarthy (concussion), receiver Damian Williams (hamstring) and defensive end Scott Solomon (knee) also are listed as questionable, but they practiced Friday and have a better chance of playing. McCarthy has missed three straight games. Cornerback Ryan Mouton (hamstring) didn't practice again and also is questionable. Center Kevin Matthews won't play Sunday because of a high ankle sprain. The Titans could move left guard Fernando Velasco to center and use recent waiver claim Mitch Petrus at Velasco's old spot. Velsasco made 12 starts at center this season before switching to guard.
