Titans LB Moise Fokou to miss 3rd straight game, targeting return Nov. 14 against Colts

Middle linebacker Moise Fokou will miss his third straight game for the Tennessee Titans on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Coach Mike Munchak says Fokou stretched ligaments in his left knee Oct. 13 against Seattle, which could keep out up to five weeks even though the linebacker didn't need surgery. Munchak says Fokou is going to take almost all that time because of the demands of the position and how the linebacker plays.

The Titans hope to ease Fokou back into the lineup Thursday night against Indianapolis, even if limited. Colin McCarthy will start for Fokou.

Right Tackle David Stewart (shoulder) practiced for the first time this week Friday. Cornerback Tommie Campbell (shoulder) missed a third straight practice, and defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (calf) did not practice. They are questionable.
