NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth sat out Sunday's game with Jacksonville with a sore right hamstring, and the Jaguars started Quinn Gray for a third straight game.
David Garrard was designated as the third, emergency quarterback.
Haynesworth hurt his hamstring chasing David Carr late in last week's 20-7 win over Carolina in what had been his best game as a professional. He had a career-high three sacks.
The Titans also deactivated defensive end Travis LaBoy, who suffered a concussion against Carolina. LaBoy is tied with Haynesworth and Kyle Vanden Bosch with a team-high five sacks. Running back Chris Brown missed a fourth straight game as he recovers from a sprained left ankle.
That meant another game for rookie Chris Henry, who appealed his four-game suspension for a positive test under the NFL's banned substances list last Wednesday. Rookie punt returner Chris Davis also was deactivated.

Run the ball and stop the run will be the motto of this game
With the Indianapolis Colts appearing to have the AFC South title locked up, it looks like Tennessee and Jacksonville will be left to fight it out for a wild-card playoff berth. In order to have any chance to make it to the playoffs the Jaguars need to show that they can beat teams like Tennessee. Their hopes pretty much lie in getting QB David Garrard back healthy. Tennessee is on a roll and has been dominating, especially on defense. This will be a matchup between two of the most-powerful defenses in the NFL, which feature huge interiors on the defensive lines. These teams also have identical game plans by relying on their defense and their ground game to win close games.
