Titans tinkering with battered secondary

Publish date:

The Tennessee Titans are short-handed at cornerback heading into Sunday's game with the New York Jets.

The Titans were already without Eric King, who broke his forearm last week against Jacksonville, and will be without Reynaldo Hill and perhaps starter Nick Harper this week.

Hill is recovering from a hip injury, and Harper is listed as doubtful with a foot injury.

Titans coach Jeff Fisher indicated the Titans have some safeties who could shift to cornerback and that there could be a roster move before the game to provide some added depth at the position.

The Titans could also be short-handed on the defensive line. Kyle Vanden Bosch, nursing a groin strain, was rested on Friday and is questionable.

Rookie defensive tackle Jason Jones is out with a foot injury, while rookie defensive end William Hayes is questionable with a knee injury.
