    The Titans placed starting offensive tackle David Stewart (leg) and safety Robert Johnson (foot) on injured reserve on Tuesday, and made a few moves to bolster their injury-depleted offensive line.

    The Titans signed offensive lineman Kyle DeVan and tackle Daniel Baldridge to the 53-man roster. The 6-8, 308-pound Baldridge was signed away from Jacksonville’s practice squad. He’s split time between Jacksonville’s practice squad and active roster over the past three years, playing in two games during that stretch.

    The 6-4, 319-pound Scott played at the University of Tennessee before getting drafted by Pittsburgh in 2010. He played in two games for the Steelers last season and this year spent time on the practice squads of Green Bay and Tampa Bay.

    In addition to Stewart’s injury, starting guard Steve Hutchinson suffered a knee injury last Sunday and his status is uncertain for this week against Indianapolis. Starting tackle Michael Roos suffered a knee injury last Sunday but is expected to play against the Colts.

    With Johnson out, is there any chance of seeing Markelle Martin before the offseason? Anyone know his status?
