    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Chris Carr played a wonderful game last week in the Titans' win in Jacksonville.

    But coming off the bench as a third-string corner is a whole different deal than being in line to start all week. With Nick Harper (ankle) on the shelf and Carr is in the lineup at left cornerback against the Jets.

    It seems obvious that the Jets and Brett Favre and Jerricho Cotchery and other New York receivers have studied Carr this week and will have several different approaches to going after him.

    Will he play to last week's level or will he struggle in a tougher matchup and bigger game?

    The Titans will be in trouble if they suffer another injury at cornerback. They just put Eric King (arm) and Reynaldo Hill (hip) on IR.

    Tyrone Poole joined the team late this week but is likely rusty after a long stretch inactive. Tuff Harris, a safety and special teamer, got the nod for the other roster spot ahead of practice squad corner Cary Williams.

    The Jets are minus two starters on defense: linebacker David Harris and safety Eric Smith.

    Glad they're missing David Harris. He's their equivalent to David Thornton.

    I'm a bit concerned about Carr, but I think they can compensate a bit if Farve starts throwing the bank at him.

    Carr had a big ZEBRA target on him.
