In another clear sign that the Titans are surrendering Thursday night's game to the Cowboys, the team announced Wednesday that basically the entire defense is out or doubtful. DT Jeffery Simmons, S Amani Hooker, EDGE Bud Dupree, LB Dylan Cole and LB Zach Cunningham are out. DL Denico Autry and CB Kristian Fulton are doubtful, which is really just a wishy-washy way of saying "out." LB Monty Rice, CB Roger McCready and S Andrew Adams like just about the only playable pieces for IDP leagues.

Titans LB Zach Cunningham came off IR to start Saturday's game against the Texans, but he left the game before halftime with more elbow trouble. Don't bet on the veteran being a factor for IDP lineups in Week 17. Monty Rice led Tennessee LBs with 91% playing time against Houston. Undrafted rookie Jack Gibbons also got 72% playing time, in a beat-up corps that previously lost LBs David Long and Dylan Cole.

Titans S Amani Hooker (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Texans.

The Titans have activated LB Zach Cunningham (elbow) from IR. He has been practicing since Dec. 14 and appears to be ready to jump back in Saturday vs. the Texans. We've added him to the Week 16 IDP rankings, though he doesn't make for an exciting option. Cunningham has just 3 games all season he didn't leave early. He tallied 7, 5 and 4 total tackles in those contests -- including just 1 solo and 3 assists in the 1st meeting with Houston.

The Titans have ruled S Amani Hooker (knee), DL Denico Autry (knee) and CB Kristian Fulton (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. It'll be the 4th straight missed game for Autry and 2nd for Fulton. Hooker played the past 3 games, leaving early from last week's loss to the Jaguars. S Andrew Adams should get his 3rd straight game of starter-level duty in Hooker's absence. Adams has actually played 78% of snaps or more in 7 of the past 8 games, some with Hooker in the lineup and others without. Check the Week 15 IDP rankings for Adams' adjusted position.

The Titans placed LB David Long Jr. (hamstring) on IR ahead of Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. That knocks him out at least through Week 17. LB Monty Rice started in Long's plays against Jacksonville and logged 12 tackles. Expect to see him in Tuesday's IDP waiver-wire article.

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) is active for today's game against the Jaguars. Use him as planned in IDP lineups.

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Simmons has been playing through the ankle issue for weeks and managed 2 limited practices this week, so we'd bet on him playing. We'll certainly check his status Sunday morning. Tennessee has ruled DL Denico Autry (knee), LB David Long (hamstring) and CB Kristian Fulton (groin) out for the game.

Titans LB David Long left in the 1st half of Sunday's loss to the Eagles with a hamstring injury and was ruled out not long after. That doesn't bode well for his Week 14 status, but we'll watch for an update from the team. LB Joe Schobert replaced Long and would seem to be in line to start if Long can't go. LB Dylan Cole also started his 2nd straight game in place of Zach Cunningham (IR).

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) and CB Kristian Fulton (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Bengals. The Tennessee defense will also get S Amani Hooker back for the 1st time in 4 games. And EDGE Bud Dupree returns after missing 2 games. It's a potentially challenging matchup for the Bengals offense.

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Packers. He’s ready to use in IDP lineups

The Titans have ruled DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, along with starters S Amani Hooker (shoulder), EDGE Bud Dupree (hip) and LB Zach Cunningham (elbow). Simmons is the biggest loss, both for the run defense and the pass rush. He had played through the sprain the past 2 games -- including for 81 snaps in last week's OT loss to the Chiefs. He said this week that he aggravated the ankle in that game. We'll see whether he can make it back for a Week 11 trip to Green Bay.

Titans EDGE Bud Dupree (hip), DL Jeffery Simmons (ankle), LB Zach Cunningham (elbow), S Amani Hooker (shoulder) and CB Kristian Fulton (hamstring) missed Thursday's practice. Simmons has played the past 2 weeks despite missing both practice weeks. His playing time increased last game vs. the 1 before. We'll see about the whole group Friday.

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) and EDGE Bud Dupree (illness) are active for tonight's game against the Chiefs.

The Titans have ruled S Amani Hooker (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) and EDGE Bud Dupree (illness) are questionable. Simmons missed the entire practice week for the 2nd straight time but still played through the issue for last Sunday's win at Houston. Dupree popped up on the injury report after missing Friday's workout. We'll confirm the status of both starters Sunday night. Make sure you have an insurance option if you hope to wait for Simmons in your IDP lineup.

Titans DT Jeffery Simmons (ankle) is active for today's game against the Texans. He didn't practice at all this week and might be limited.
