NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans will reunite with quarterback Ryan Tannehill against the Denver Broncos after the 11-year-old veteran missed the last two games with a sprained right ankle.

The Titans (5-3) will need the veteran with cornerback Kristian Fulton becoming Tennessee’s fifth defensive starter ruled out against Denver (3-5).

Tannehill sprained his right ankle Oct. 23 in a win over Indianapolis. Rookie Malik Willis replaced him and went 1-1 in Tannehill’s absence. The Titans currently rank 31st in the NFL in yards per game with just 100 more yards than Tennessee rushed thanks to league leader Derrick Henry.

The Titans also have rookie receiver Treylon Burks back after being activated Saturday off injured reserve with cornerback Elijah Molden. The defensive back will be a big addition with Fulton scratched with an injured hamstring.

Fulton joins Jeffery Simmons, a 2021 Pro Bowl defensive lineman, outside linebacker Bud Dupree and safety Amani Hooker who were all ruled out on Friday. Inside linebacker Zach Cunningham was placed on the disabled list Saturday along with defensive back Josh Thompson.

The Broncos, who rank 30th in the NFL in scoring, will be without wide receiver KJ Hamler. Denver also ruled out safety Justin Simmons who suffered a knee injury in the Broncos’ London win over Jacksonville.
