    The Titans’ offensive line performed well in the loss to Indianapolis despite injury issues.

    Tennessee began the day without starting left tackle Michael Roos, who saw his 119-game streak come to an end after getting his appendix taken out last Monday. Mike Otto started in his place.

    Things got worse on the Titans’ first possession, when the team lost starting guard Leroy Harris and starting right tackle David Stewart on the same play with knee injuries.

    Harris never returned and was replaced by Kevin Matthews for the remainder of the of the contest. Stewart returned quickly to the lineup, but was limping throughout the game.

    Still, the line helped Johnson gain 99 yards and allowed only two sacks of Matt Hasselbeck.

    “I thought Otto played like we thought he would play against a very good football player,” Munchak said. “And Kevin Matthews did the same way. That’s what is exciting about it. That’s what our team has to be able to do. You have to have guys go in when there are injuries.”

    Munchak said Harris would undergo an MRI on Monday, adding “hopefully it’s not bad.”

    Maybe our offensive line doesn't lose much when starters go down because our starters aren't any better then their backups...

    Harris might be out a while. It may mean little Matthews will get some PT or we get to see Lutui.
