Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher ruled seven players out of Saturday night’s preseason home opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fisher confirmed that receivers Mark Jones (hamstring) and Chris Davis (hamstring), nickelback Vincent Fuller (groin), linebackers Stephen Tulloch (knee) Colin Allred (high ankle sprain), defensive linemen Jacob Ford (hamstring) and Jason Jones (foot) will not suit up against the Bucs.

All seven had already missed practice time this week with some of them not practicing at all.

"I think all these guys will probably play next weekend," Fisher said.

Of the other Titans who had not practiced this week, Fisher held out hope that fullback Casey Cramer (shoulder) and safety Nick Schommer (hamstring) might be able to play.
