Sunday, November 1, 2009 at 2:46pm

Defensive tackle Jovan Haye will be inactive for the Tennessee Titans today against the Jacksonville Jaguars and will be replaced by Jason Jones.

Also, defensive end Jevon Kearse, who left LP Field the last time he was a healthy scratch, is inactive again.

Other inactives for the Titans include cornerback Nick Harper, running back Javon Ringer, cornerback Cary Williams, tackle Mike Otto, tight end Craig Stevens and newly signed return man Alvin Pearman.

Rod Hood will start for Jason McCourty at left cornerback. Right cornerback Cortland Finnegan is back from his hamstring injury and will be active, along with nickelback Vincent Fuller. Neither has played since Sept. 27 against the New York Jets.

With Mark Jones on injured reserve and Pearman inactive, McCourty is likely to handle kickoffs and veteran Kevin Kaesviharn could handle punts.

Jaguars inactives include receiver Tiquan Underwood, cornerbacks Rashean Mathis and Brian Witherspoon, safety Sean Considine, linebacker Bryan Smith, tackles Maurice Williams and Jordan Black and defensive tackle Greg Peterson.
