Indianapolis at Tennessee Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, at LP Field, Nashville - TV: CBS; DirecTV: 712 *TV announcers: Bill Macatee, Steve Tasker *Keys to the game: The Titans plan to restore Jake Locker as their starting quarterback barring setbacks with his left shoulder. He's been out since mid-September and has separated the shoulder twice. He returns to an offense that has shifted gears with RB Chris Johnson having produced two vintage performances in a row, including 104 yards and two touchdowns on his first five carries last week at Buffalo - although he still has too many negative runs for the coaches' liking. With three victories by four or fewer points, the Colts aren't equipped to survive turnovers. Until they develop a more capable rushing attack, QB Andrew Luck has been the Colts' most dangerous rushing threat, as shown in his multiple red-zone rushing TDs last week. Donald Brown (knee) might be back this week, but the offensive line has its hands full aga...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Tennessee Titans believe that Jake Locker is their future franchise quarterback. While he has struggled at times to make big plays this season, Locker has looked very good at different times throughout his first couple of seasons in the NFL. If the Titans are to get back to the playoffs some day, Locker will have to play a large part in leading the offense.
But that is the future...
After holding out for a new contract at the start of the 2011 preseason, Tennessee Titans Running Back Chris Johnson never seemed to be the same. Johnson rushed for career lows in both yards (1,047) and touchdowns (4) in 2011. By NFL standards Chris Johnson had a productive season, however, by his own standard, he failed to compare. Just two seasons prior Johnson had rushed...
Chris Johnson back? Could it possibly be?
Apparently, it looks like it may be true when the Tennessee Titans running back broke out for an 83-yard touchdown run in the first half in the team’s game versus the Buffalo Bills Sunday.
Johnson helped tie the game with that run and later had another in the game, finishing with 195 yards off of 18 carries. It looked like a CJ2K day...
Titans left tackle Michael Roos has made 119 consecutive starts since he was drafted in 2005, but his status for Sundays game against the Colts is up in the air. Roos had surgery to remove his appendix this morning, and his playing status is day-to-day, coach Mike Munchak said.
Hes kind of like (offensive line coach) Bruce Matthews, Munchak said. Hes a quick healer...
Titans left tackle Michael Roos had a pleasant flashback watching the back of Chris Johnson's jersey disappear in the distance on his way to the end zone against the Buffalo Bills.
For Roos, it looked like something from 2009, when Johnson became just the sixth NFL player to break 2,000 yards rushing.
''It was, and I think everybody has been waiting for him to get back...
Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis will miss his second straight game Sunday, and Indianapolis also will be without defensive Cory Redding.
Both players are inactive.
Mathis and Redding both have knee injuries and will be replaced by Jerry Hughes and Ricardo Matthews. Cornerback Darius Butler, running back Donald Brown, defensive end Fili Moala, left guard Joe Reitz and nose...
INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts coach Chuck
Pagano watched Sunday's game from home, hours after being released from
an Indianapolis hospital.
Interim coach Bruce Arians provided the update following Indy's 17-13 victory over Cleveland.
Pagano has missed Indy's last three
games after being diagnosed with leukemia. He had been in the hospital
It looks as if Titans veteran linebacker Zac Diles is done for the year.
Diles, who started at middle linebacker against the Bills, suffered a broken right leg and will almost certainly go on injured reserve. Patrick Bailey suffered a broken rib and Munchak called him very questionable for the Indianapolis game. Will Witherspoon missed some time against the Bills with a sore...
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Matt Hasselbeck hit Nate Washington for a 15-yard touchdown with 1:03 left in leading the Tennessee Titans to a 35-34 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
It was Hasselbeck's 22nd career fourth-quarter comeback and second in consecutive weeks. It happened in a game in which running back Chris Johnson enjoyed a long awaited breakout performance with...
Over at Bleacher Report, Nate Dunlevy recapitulated the Colts' win over the Browns with his observations and even some highlight videos. Nate saw it the way many fans familiar with the team saw it:
Following a similar formula to previous encounters with the Vikings and Jaguars, the Colts jumped out to a comfortable halftime lead, and then hung on for dear life.
The Indianapolis Star's Mike Chappell, on the ball as usual, says the difference in this game came down to a few big plays. The Colts struggled (I've almost reached some kind of overuse threshold on that word this season) for long stretches in this game. However, they kept coming up with one more big play to keep their hopes alive against the feisty Browns. Chappell...

Indianapolis Colts officials confirmed after Sunday's 17-13 victory over Cleveland that coach Chuck Pagano has been released from the hospital and is continuing his recovery from leukemia at home. Pagano had watched the Colts' previous two games from his hospital room. The Colts are 2-1 since offensive coordinator Bruce Arians took over as the interim head coach in Pagano...
Andrew Luck ran for two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday as the Indianapolis Colts moved to 3-3 on the season. The win against the Browns gave the Colts one more win then they had in 2011.
The two touchdown runs by Luck were 3 and 5 yards.
The Browns had two chances late in the game to win but were unable to convert on fourth down. Brandon Weeden threw for 247 yards...
Andrew Luck threw for 186 yards and rushed for two touchdowns, and the Indianapolis Colts held off the Cleveland Browns, 17-13, Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Though Luck was just 16-of-29 passing, he led the Colts to 321 yards of total offense and three scoring drives, just enough to edge out the Browns, who generated 319 yards of offense.
Reggie Wayne led all Colts receivers...
