Battle (stinger) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Battle has been dealing with a stinger which has limited his participation in practice this week, but he's been able to overcome it enough to start Sunday. He has been moved from running back to fullback this season, so his carries should certainly decrease, although he could get a goal-line carry here-and-there.

Battle (stinger) was limited at practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.
Given that Battle is the only fullback currently rostered by the Titans, his Week 1 status does not appear to be in much doubt, though fantasy utility will be difficult for him to carve out with Shonn Greene, Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster on hand to handle the bulk of the team's running back duties.

Battle sustained a stinger during Saturday's preseason game in Atlanta and won't return, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.

The Titans have moved Battle to fullback and he is currently ahead of incumbent Collin Mooney on the depth chart, ESPN.com reports.
Battle found himself near the bottom of the pecking order in a crowded backfield that includes Shonn Greene, Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington, so the switch in positions makes sense. Battle figures to be the starting fullback when Tennessee opens its preseason against Green Bay on Saturday.

Battle is also competing with injury-prone Shonn Greene for goal-line and short-yardage work behind rookie Bishop Sankey. At fullback, 30-year-old Battle is trying to knock off Collin Mooney. Battle's a near-lock to make the final roster because he can play both positions and consistently cover kicks.
