Harper is the second defensive back the winless Titans have lost to a broken right forearm. The other is safety Vincent Fuller, who was injured Sept. 27 against the New York Jets. The Titans hope he might be able to play Nov. 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Coach Jeff Fisher says the Titans will be stretched a bit thin for Sunday's game at New England and the team might have to make a roster move.

Tight end Craig Stevens was released from a hospital Monday with a concussion. Stevens was knocked out of Sunday night's 31-9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts after a helmet-to-helmet collision with a teammate.
