Titans QB Collins' injury improving to point he could start

Kerry Collins could start at quarterback for the Tennessee Titans on Sunday against the AFC South rival Jacksonville Jaguars, *The Tennessean* reported Tuesday.

Collins, who has missed two games due to a strained calf muscle, backed up rookie Rusty Smith this past Sunday.

"He pushed through some things well before the pregame warm-ups and felt good, felt like he could finish the game if need be," Coach Jeff Fisher said at his weekly press conference.

Smith was 17-of-31 passing for just 138 yards as the Titans were shut out by the Houston Texans on Sunday, 20-0. It was Tennessee's fourth consecutive loss.
