Tennessee Titans preclude various starters against the Green Bay Packers


The Tennessee Titans have precluded various starters for Thursday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Starters precluded Wednesday included center Ben Jones (concussion), security Amani Hooker (shoulder), kicker Randy Bullock (right calf) and outside linebacker Bud Dupree (hip).

Backup safety Lonnie Johnson (hamstring) likewise was precluded.

Jones experienced a blackout in Sunday’s 17-10 win over the Denver Broncos. Titans coach Mike Vrabel said on Monday that Jones was in the concussion protocol. The short week made it more difficult for Jones to get cleared. Reserve lineman Corey Levin will get the beginning at center in Jones’ place.

Hooker will miss his third sequential game in the wake of injuring a shoulder in Week 8 against the Houston Texans. The Titans will go to veteran security Andrew Adams to begin in Hooker’s place.

Dupree is managing a hip injury that happened in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills. The veteran outside linebacker has been in and out of the lineup however has missed a total of four games this season.

Bullock changed his right calf during pregame warm-ups Sunday and was unavailable for the kickoffs yet was great on a 35-yard field goal attempt. Punter Ryan Stonehouse handled kickoffs for the Titans on Sunday.

Tennessee signed veteran kicker Josh Lambo to deal with kicking duties on Thursday. In a corresponding move, the Titans released wide receiver Chris Conley to open up a roster spot for Lambo.

The Titans listed starter Jeffery Simmons (ankle) and nickel cornerback Elijah Molden (groin) as problematic for Thursday.

For the Packers, linebacker De’Vondre Campbell (knee) and wide receiver Romeo Doubs (ankle) have been precluded. Offensive linemen David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins are both listed as questionable with knee wounds after not practicing this week.
