    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Middle linebacker Colin McCarthy (ankle) was inactive. Then his backup, veteran Zac Diles, went down with an ankle injury in the first half and was carted off.

    Linebackers Will Witherspoon (hamstring) and Patrick Bailey (ribs) also spent time on the sideline.

    “It was hard,” coach Mike Munchak said. “We thought we’d be OK, and then Zac hurts the ankle. That was unfortunate because we thought he had a chance to have a big game. … It seemed like we were losing all of our linebackers, but we weathered the storm.”

    The Titans will know more about the extent of Diles’ injury on Monday, Munchak said.
