NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans have placed wide receiver Justin Hunter on injured reserve while he's still in a Houston hospital recovering from a lacerated spleen.

Hunter wrote on Twitter he couldn't wait to get back to his own bed Tuesday a few hours before the Titans announced the roster move.

He was hurt Sunday when hit by Texans safety Danieal Manning in the first quarter on a pass that was intercepted. Hunter returned only to be taken to the hospital after complaining of stomach pains during the 45-21 loss.

The Titans also signed offensive tackle Terren Jones off Baltimore's practice squad.

The 6-foot-7, 341-pound Jones was undrafted in 2013 out of Alabama State, and he has been on the practice squads with Atlanta, Atlanta, Washington and most recently Baltimore.
