Kearse a Healthy Scratch for Titans

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Bob Sanders, who traveled with the Indianapolis Colts to Tennessee, was deactivated for Sunday night's game against the Titans.

The Titans sat cornerback Cortland Finnegan for a second game with left defensive end Jevon Kearse a healthy scratch for the first time this season.

Sanders had been listed as doubtful this week. He has not played in a game all season. Now he won't have a chance to play for two more weeks with the Colts having their bye week next.

Indianapolis also deactivated cornerbacks Kelvin Hayden and Marlin Jackson (surgically repaired left knee). Jacob Lacey was starting for Hayden. The Colts sat left tackle Charlie Johnson (knee) with Tony Ugoh making his first start this season.

Finnegan said in the middle of the week he was going to play against the Colts. But he ran on the field early and huddled with coach Jeff Fisher and a trainer shortly before the decision on inactives was due. Rookie Jason McCourty will start in his spot.

Kearse had one sack all season. William Hayes was set for his first NFL start.
