Tennessee Titans Week 12 projected starters

Starting offense:

QB: Ryan Tannehill

WR1: A.J. Brown (?)

WR2: Nick Westbrook-Ikhine

WR3: Chester Rodgers

LT: Taylor Lewan

LG: Rodger Saffold

C: Ben Jones

RG: Aaron Brewer

RT: David Quessenberry

TE: Geoff Swaim

FB: Tory Carter

RB: D’Onta Foreman

Nearly half of the Tennessee Titans offense is injured at this point and even though A.J. Brown is on this list of starters, he is mainly there because he hasn’t been declared out yet. There is a fair chance that the starting wide receivers include Dez Fitzpatrick or the newly acquired Golden Tate.

Starting defense

EDGE: Harold Landry

DL: Jeffery Simmons

DL: NaQuan Jones

DL: Teair Tart

EDGE: Ola Adeniyi

LB: Jayon Brown

LB: Monty Rice

CB: Jackrabbit Jenkins (?)

CB: Kristian Fulton

SCB: Elijah Molden

S: Kevin Byard

S: Amani Hooker

Like I said on the previous page, not all changes are bad changes. If you want a silver lining to all of these injuries, the rise of NaQuan Jones, Monty Rice, and David Long (even though he isn’t mentioned here) are all positives.

It is a shame that Caleb Farley was injured because the Titans have had a rash of cornerback injuries and it would have been a great chance for him to get some experience at the NFL level. His ACL injury has to make the Titans a little bit nervous about potentially cutting ties with Jackrabbit Jenkins this offseason.
