NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's offensive line is what coach Mike Munchak calls a "work in progress" now that right tackle David Stewart is the third starter lost to injury.

Center Eugene Amano tore his right triceps in August, and right guard Leroy Harris' season ended in November with a right knee injury. Then Stewart broke his right leg on the team's third offensive play in their 24-10 loss to Houston on Sunday.

And those aren't even all the injuries on the line.

Munchak said Monday they were waiting for test results on left guard Steve Hutchinson's right knee, but will need to add more offensive linemen. When left tackle Michael Roos hurt his knee and came out for a play, Hutchinson returned with the rest of the line scrambled as the Titans (4-8) lost their second straight and fourth in five games.
