Cornerback Cortland Finnegan Ruled Out For Sunday's Game Against Patriots Hopefully, Tom Brady and his receiving corps will get a little bit of a break against a depleted Titans secondary on Sunday.

Tennessee was already planning on playing without cornerback Nick Harper — who broke his arm in a 31-9 loss to the Colts last week — but now, cornerback Cortland Finnegan will also be out of commission for Sunday's game against New England, according to

Finnegan was listed as questionable until Saturday, when he was officially ruled out after missing three straight days of practice. The corner has now missed three consecutive games since suffering a hamstring injury during a loss to the Jets on Sept. 27.

Rookie Jason McCourty will likely start in Finnegan's place for the second straight week.

Prior to this season, the 25-year-old Finnegan played in 16 games in each of his three years in the league. In 2008, he garnered five interceptions for 100 yards and a touchdown, plus 17 pass deflections and 58 tackles.
