INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Tennessee Titans after speculation that he would play.

Colts coach Tony Dungy had said Harrison likely would start against the Titans after the eight-time Pro Bowler practiced twice last week in a return from a left knee injury that has sidelined him most of the season.

Harrison, who has not played since Oct. 22 at Jacksonville, went through a full workout Thursday and participated in Friday's practice with no apparent problems. He was listed as questionable on the Colts' injury report after Friday's workout.

Dungy had said that if Harrison played, he might keep quarterback Peyton Manning in the game longer to work on their timing.

Other key inactive Colts are receiver Anthony Gonzalez (foot), right tackle Ryan Diem (knee), defensive tackle Raheem Brock (rib), tight end Ben Utecht (shoulder) and defensive end Robert Mathis (knee).

Titans center Kevin Mawae (calf) also was declared inactive.
