Titans LB Colin McCarthy out again with concussion

Titans LB Colin McCarthy out again with concussion

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee middle linebacker Colin McCarthy will miss his second consecutive game because of a concussion, and his sixth overall, when the Titans visit the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

McCarthy was held out of practice Friday after practicing some Wednesday and Thursday.

``We're not happy with here he's at right now, and it's probably good to rest him for another week,'' coach Mike Munchak said. ``He's progressing, but with more activity, he's just not ready to play in a football game. . He needs to be a little better than he is right now in order to play in a game on Sunday. So we just ruled him out.''

McCarthy, a defensive captain, missed four games previously this season because of to a sprained right ankle.

``It's been a tough year for him. It's been frustrating for Colin and for the team,'' Munchak said.

But left tackle Michael Roos returned to practice Friday with his sprained right knee and is questionable. Munchak expects Roos to play against the Colts, and the Titans need him as the only starter from the offensive line from training camp not on injured reserve.

The Titans (4-8) also ruled out receiver Damian Williams with a hamstring injury. The Titans promoted receiver Michael Preston from the practice squad Friday and waived fullback Collin Mooney.

Defensive end Kamerion Wimbley (toe) is questionable along with running back Jamie Harper (ankle) and receiver Lavelle Hawkins (ankle). Jake Locker (left shoulder) is probable after practicing all week along with tight end Jared Cook (neck) and receiver Kenny Britt (knee).

Did Anthony Cowan deserve the technical foul that ended his night vs. Ohio State?

Did Anthony Cowan deserve the technical foul that ended his night vs. Ohio State?

Anthony Cowan was handed a technical foul late in the second half of Maryland's matchup with Ohio State that resulted in his ejection.

Cowan, with four personal fouls at the time, was hammered on a layup attempt with 3:54 left in the contest against the Buckeyes.

After no whistle was blown, Cowan reacted, kicking his foot up in the air in disbelief. He was then given the technical, resulting in his ejection.

Cowan picked up his third foul with 7:08 left in the game, and then picked up No. 4 two minutes later. A technical foul was assessed to Cowan and ended his night.

Twitter lit into the officiating that played a major factor in a very important conference game between the two squads.

Maryland ended up losing the matchup to the Buckeyes 79-72, but they didn't lose too much ground in the conference standings.

Penn State lost Sunday afternoon, so Maryland didn't lose any ground in its quest to win the Big 10 regular-season championship for the first time. With four games to go, the Terps still hold a two-game lead over Penn State, Michigan State, Iowa and Wisconsin in the conference standings.

Maryland doesn't lose any ground in Big 10 standings after loss to Ohio State

Maryland suffered a frustrating loss to Ohio State on the road Sunday in a game that featured their best player fouling out thanks to a more than questionable technical foul. 

The bad news for the Terps? They missed a chance to gain ground on Baylor, Gonzaga and San Diego State, who all lost on Saturday, for a top seed in the NCAA tournament. 

The good news is that Penn State lost, too, so Maryland didn't lose any ground in its quest to win the Big 10 regular-season championship for the first time. With four games to go, it still holds a two-game lead over Penn State, Michigan State, Iowa and Wisconsin in the conference standings. 

For the Terps to lose this regular-season title, it would have to be a monumental collapse over the next few weeks.

But the schedule still features some tough games so it isn't over quite yet. Maryland must shake off this most recent loss in Columbus and refocus on a 13-13 Minnesota team. The Terp's final three opponents after that are Michigan State at home, Rutgers on the road and Michigan in College Park.
