Titans place Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve


A day after placing right tackle David Stewart on injured reserve due to a broken leg, the Tennessee Titans had to end the season for yet another starting offensive lineman.

Tennessee placed left guard Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve Wednesday. He’s the fourth starting offensive lineman the Titans have lost for the season joining Stewart, center Eugene Amano and right guard Leroy Harris.

Hutchinson suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s loss to the Houston Texans. Tennessee claimed guard Mitch Petrus off waivers from the New England Patriots to take Hutchinson’s spot on the active roster.

Left tackle Michael Roos is also dealing with a knee injury coming from the game against the Texans. He did not practice Wednesday for Tennessee. Wide receiver Damian Williams (hamstring) and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley (toe) also were held out of practice.
