NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch will miss the final two games of the regular season with separate injuries.
Titans coach Jeff Fisher said he expects both linemen to return for the playoffs.
Haynesworth sprained his left medial collateral ligament with 92 seconds left in Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Houston Texans. Fisher said Monday an MRI exam showed damage that takes up to two weeks to heal.
Vanden Bosch did not play against Houston. Fisher said Vanden Bosch, who had 12 1/2 sacks last season, injured his groin on Dec. 7 against Cleveland. The Titans sent him to a specialist who recommended what Fisher termed "minor" surgery to repair a groin muscle. Vanden Bosch had missed three other games with groin problems.
