Another honor for Moorman

The honors keep rolling in for Bills punter Brian Moorman. A day after being named to his second straight Pro Bowl, Moorman was named AFC special teams player of the week. Moorman put four punts inside the 20-yard line in Sunday's game against Miami.

Moorman ranks second in the NFL in punts inside the 20 with 29. His previous high was last year with 22.

Moorman is tied for the NFL lead in net punting average with Dallas' Matt McBriar at 39.5 yards. Moorman was AFC special teams player of the month in November.

Missing from Wednesday's practice due to injury were receiver Peerless Price (thigh), linebacker Takeo Spikes (ankle) and fullback Daimon Shelton (head). All are listed as questionable. None of the injuries are serious. Linebacker John DiGiorgio (ankle) also is questionable, but he did practice. Guard Tutan Reyes was excused for personal reasons.

The Titans have five starters listed as questionable, but it looks like only one is in serious doubt of playing. Linebacker Peter Sirmon hurt his knee on the first series against Jacksonville and missed the rest of the game. He did not practice Wednesday. His backup is rookie fourth-round pick Stephen Tulloch. The other injured starters are running back Travis Henry (ankle), receiver Drew Bennett (knee), tight end Bo Scaife (ankle) and defensive end Travis LaBoy (knee). Henry, Bennett and LaBoy also were held out of practice.

There still were 18,500 tickets remaining for Sunday's game, meaning it surely will be the fourth straight home game blacked out from local television.
