NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Left tackle Michael Roos is practicing again and definitely wants back on the field Sunday. The shape the Tennessee offensive line is in, the Titans certainly need him Sunday with the Chicago Bears visiting.

Four of the five starting offensive linemen are on the injury report as the Titans (3-5) prepare to host Chicago (6-1). Left guard Steve Hutchinson is the only lineman not listed with center Fernando Velasco recovering from a concussion and right guard Leroy Harris and right tackle David Stewart both having hurt their right knees in last week's loss to Indianapolis.

Roos sat out last week as he recovered from an appendectomy, snapping his 119-game consecutive start streak. Now that he's had 10 days to recover, Roos may be healthier than some of his line mates.
