NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Kerry Collins is starting against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the sixth straight game the Tennessee Titans have started a different quarterback than the week before.
Collins last started Nov. 14 against Miami but strained his left calf just before halftime. The Titans gave rookie Rusty Smith his first career start last week in a 20-0 loss to Houston, but Smith will be the third quarterback with Chris Simms backing up Collins.
Titans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger, who started chemotherapy for cancer Wednesday, will be in the press box.
The Titans also deactivated receiver Kenny Britt and defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks.
The Jaguars deactivated defensive tackle Leger Douzable and receiver Mike Sims-Walker.
