    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky JACKSONVILLE -- The Titans are down their No. 2 cornerback, but it's unlikely to hurt them as much as you might think since the Jaguars are down their No. 1 receiver.

    Nick Harper (ankle) is out for Tennessee; Matt Jones (thigh) won't play for the Jaguars.

    Eric King will start in Harper's place, and has proved to be a solid fill-in. The depth behind him is not strength, however.

    Jones is replaced by Jerry Porter, who's done little after a big offseason contract lured him here and he had summer hamstring surgery. Troy Williamson (groin) is also out. Dennis Northcutt and Mike Walker could be a big part of the pass attack.

    Also out for Tennessee: defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch (groin) and receiver Justin McCareins (concussion). Dave Ball and Brandon Jones will start in their places.
