Titans' Jones has high ankle sprain

The Tennessee Titans may be without one of their starters on the defensive line when they face the Houston Texans in a must-win game Sunday.

Defensive end Jason Jones told TitanInsider.com that he has a high ankle sprain suffered in Saturday's victory over Jacksonville. His status for Sunday is up in the air at this point. Jones did not practice Wednesday and had a protective walking boot on his left foot.

“I'm doing all right. My ankle is hurting a little bit right now. It just depends on how my ankle responds to treatment this week. Hopefully, I can play. It's one of the biggest games of the year. If not, then we've got a lot people in our room that can play and step up. It's a high ankle sprain. We'll see how I respond,” Jones said.

Jones, who has played both tackle and end in his time as a Titan, has been a productive player when healthy for Tennessee, but has often been nicked by injuries. He is scheduld to be a free agent in March.

Other than Jones, the Titans are mostly healthy going into the regular-season finale. Chris Johnson did not practice on his sore ankle, but is expected to play.
