The Tennessee Titans and Denver Broncos have released their Week 6 inactives lists.

Despite practicing fully all week, the Tennessee Titans will have right guard Kevin Pamphile inactive in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos.

Pamphile missed the first five games with a knee injury he suffered prior to the start of the season. In his place, the Titans deployed Jamil Douglas as the starting right guard to disastrous results, and have now turned to rookie right guard Nate Davis the last few weeks.

It appears Pamphile simply wasn’t ready to give it a go this week, but we don’t exactly have confirmation of that yet. We should know more after the game.

Here’s the full inactives lists for both teams.

Broncos inactives

Titans notes

No surprise here: both outside linebackers Cameron Wake and Sharif Finch were ruled out during the week. Wake missed last week’s game against the Buffalo Bills, while Finch is now missing his third consecutive game.

The Titans did not make any moves to fill the void at outside linebacker, leaving Harold Landry, Kamalei Correa and Reggie Gilbert as the team’s only healthy outside linebackers. We could see inside linebackers Rashaan Evans and Jayon Brown help out on the outside in Week 6.

Running back Rod Smith will be inactive and will have to wait until next week at the earliest to make his debut. Smith popped up on the injury report with a groin issue during the week, although we’re not exactly sure if that’s what is keeping him out. Dalyn Dawkins will be the Titans’ third back.

Broncos notes

Broncos right tackle Ja’Wuan James was listed as questionable during the week, but NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier on Sunday that he would not suit up. That was confirmed with the release of the team’s inactives.

The Broncos will also be without three of their top four corners in this game. That’s something the Titans have to look to exploit against Denver.
