Titans declared Jason McCourty (groin) inactive for Week 3 against the Colts.

Titans declared CB Jason McCourty, QB Charlie Whitehurst, RB Antonio Andrews, G Quinton Spain, TE Chase Coffman, DE Ropati Pitoitua and DT Sammie Hill inactive for Week 1 against the Buccaneers.

McCourty underwent groin surgery last month and is expected to miss Tennessee's first handful of games. Perrish Cox and Andy Gallik are both active for Week 1.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said Titans CB Jason McCourty could miss the first three games after undergoing groin surgery.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said McCourty is "expected to miss a few games." With the Titans on bye Week 4, the safe decision may be to hold him out until after the break. Coty Sensabaugh or Blidi Wreh-Wilson will start opposite Perrish Cox while McCourty is out.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms LCB Jason McCourty (groin surgery) is "expected to miss a few games."

Coach Ken Whisenhunt stated Monday that McCourty could "possibly" return by Week 1, but that's not happening after today's operation. The Titans may have to turn back to Blidi Wreh-Wilson opposite Perrish Cox. This will be an upgrade to Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, and Vincent Jackson's Week 1 matchups.

Titans LCB Jason McCourty is questionable for Week 1 after undergoing groin surgery.

McCourty had groin problems last season and did nothing in camp to this point while pursuing a non-surgical option. A "small tear" was discovered when McCourty required an MRI, and he went under the knife. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said McCourty could "possibly" return by Week 1, but that seems like an extreme long shot. McCourty is Tennessee's top cover cornerback.

Titans LCB Jason McCourty (groin) is active for Week 3 against the Bengals.

McCourty was listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis all week. Inactive for the Titans are QB Zach Mettenberger, WR T.J. Graham, WR Kris Durham, LB Akeem Ayers, DL Mike Martin, OT Byron Stingily, and DL DaQuan Jones.

Jason McCourty (groin) is questionable for the Titans Week 3 matchup against the Bengals.

Coty Sensabaugh would get the start opposite Blidi Wreh-Wilson if McCourty is unable to go. This is shaping up as a good matchup for A.J. Green, though his toe injury makes him something of a risky start.

Titans LCB Jason McCourty was forced from Tennessee's Week 2 game against the Cowboys with a groin injury.

McCourty is technically "questionable" to return, but has spent the entire second half on the sideline without his helmet. He's not returning. Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Coty Sensabaugh are now the Titans' top two corners. Tennessee has been getting roasted by Dez Bryant since McCourty's departure.

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.

"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 LCB 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.

The Titans and CB Jason McCourty have been discussing a contract extension.

McCourty is set to earn $1.26 million in 2012, the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. With Cortland Finnegan now in St. Louis, he'll be counted on as the Titans' No. 1 corner. Talks are expected to continue for the next few weeks.

Titans LCB Jason McCourty reached escalators that will increase his base salary to $1.26 million in 2012, the final year of his rookie deal.

McCourty was initially scheduled to make $565,000, but set career-highs in tackles (107), interceptions (two), and pass deflections (13) last season. A sixth-round pick in 2009, McCourty projects to start alongside right corner Alterraun Verner next season. ESPN's Adam Schefter insists the Titans will not place the franchise tag on free agent slot corner Cortland Finnegan.

The Nashville Tennessean calls LCB Jason McCourty "arguably the team's defensive MVP" in 2011.

Cortland Finnegan, one of the top corners in the league, would certainly beg to differ. McCourty was the team's second-leading tackler (107), surpassing his more hyped brother Devin in caliber of play. He's locked in as a starter for 2012 while free agent Finnegan's Nashville future is in doubt.
