After saying earlier in the week that Vanden Bosch would be a game-time decision, Coach Jeff Fisher said Friday that Vanden Bosch would not play, instead resting the groin that has bothered him off and on since Oct. 5 against Baltimore.
``He is out this week,'' Fisher said.
Vanden Bosch has missed three other games with the injury and did not finish two more before seemingly getting over the injury Nov. 23 when the Titans played the New York Jets. However, he aggravated the injury in last Sunday's win over Cleveland.
Dave Ball and Jacob Ford are expected to split time at Vanden Bosch's right defensive end spot. The duo has combined to produce 9 1/2 sacks this season.
Cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan (hamstring) and Nick Harper (ankle) and linebacker David Thornton (hip) will be probable on Sunday.
Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth (knee) and running backs LenDale White (knee) and Quinton Ganther (knee) will be questionable.
ter Kevin Mawae was fined $5,000 by the NFL for his hit on Cleveland's Kameron Wimbley in Sunday's game. Mawae was penalized for unnecessary roughness on the hit and plans to appeal.
