NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans will be without safety Johnathan Cyprien for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Cyprien is expected to miss several weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in Sunday's loss to the Raiders, Coach Mike Mularkey said during his press conference on Monday.

Cornerback Tye Smith also suffered a broken hand against the Raiders, and he's questionable for this week.

The Titans are expected to get cornerback LeShaun Sims back, however. Sims missed Sunday's game with a groin injury.

Veteran Da'Norris Searcy is expected to step in for Cyprien, a former Jaguar who was signed this offseason.

"Fortunately we have some depth at that position, with Curtis Riley as well," Mularkey said of the safety position. "We have some depth there. That is one of the positions we kept for special teams, so we have some guys who can step in and have some experience."
