Jason McCourty DB TEN 2 Days
McCourty (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
McCourty's status for Sunday's tilt was somewhat of a question mark after he was limited in practice all three days, but he'll be available against the Bengals, though perhaps in a lesser capacity than usual. It may be difficult for McCourty to return to the 92-tackle, four-interception peak he displayed in 2012, but he's considered the Titans' top corner following the offseason departure of Alterraun Verner to the Bucs.

McCourty (groin) increased his workload at practice Friday, but is still listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Cincinnati, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.
McCourty was injured in Week 2's loss to Dallas. If he can't go, Coty Sensabugh would likely slot in as the starting corner opposite Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

McCourty (groin), who was limited at practice both Wednesday and Thursday, remains questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports. "I did more today than I did yesterday,'' McCourty said. "But I will leave (my status) up to coach Whiz. He decides who is up and who is down. It's his decision to make and I'll leave it up to him."
The official designation will come Friday, but McCourty seems to be truly questionable. He left Sunday's game against the Cowboys, and was never able to return. Should McCourty fail to play, Coty Sensabaugh will likely start across from Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

McCourty had two interceptions, three tackles and two pass deflections in Tennessee's Week 1 road win over Kansas City.
While Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Coty Sensabaugh are jostling for playing time at the other cornerback spot, McCourty showed why there's no competition on the left side. That being said, things could get more difficult in Week 2 against Dez Bryant and the Cowboys.

Titans LCB Jason McCourty's tackle numbers dipped significantly in 2013.
After posting 195 total tackles in 2011 and 2012, McCourty managed just 65 total tackles last season. This decline wasn't from a lack of opportunity, as McCourty saw five more targets (102) than he did in 2012. McCourty played very well on the field, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 10 of 110 qualifying cornerbacks in 2013, but his days as an elite IDP option may be behind him.

Titans LCB Jason McCourty expects to play more press coverage in 2013.
"Overall this year as a defense, we'll have a little bit more of an aggressive mentality," McCourty said. "I think part of that for us as cornerbacks will be getting up at the line of scrimmage and pressing, getting our hands on the wide receivers." The Titans got throttled underneath last season, while press coverage is one of de-facto DC Gregg Williams' hallmarks. McCourty graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 6 cornerback in 2012, but the Titans allowed a franchise-record 471 points. Enemy quarterbacks completed 66.3 percent of their passes.

Titans signed CB Jason McCourty to a five-year, $43 million extension.
The deal includes $20 million in guarantees and bonuses. It's a staggering number for a player who has started just 24 games over three seasons, but McCourty is coming off a breakout year with career-highs in tackles (107), interceptions (two), and pass deflections (13). Although the since departed Cortland Finnegan played at a Pro Bowl level last year, the Nashville Tennessean believes McCourty was "arguably" the defensive MVP. It's now clear that the Titans preferred to lock up the younger of the two corners.
