Woodyard among 2 defensive starters out for Titans vs Bills

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans will be without two defensive starters in Buffalo with coach Mike Vrabel declaring linebacker Wesley Woodyard and safety Kenny Vaccaro both out for the game.

Vaccaro's absence Sunday is no surprise as he dislocated his right elbow in last week's win over Philadelphia. Vrabel said Monday that Vaccaro would be out "a few weeks."

Woodyard, a defensive captain, did not practice all week after hurting a shoulder early last week. Vrabel had said earlier this week that the Titans were hopeful Woodyard would not miss any time. But the veteran linebacker did not practice this week.

Backup tackle Dennis Kelly practiced for the second straight day for the Titans (3-1) recovering from an illness that has kept him out since the second week of the season.
