The Tennessee Titans will limp into Washington with a depleted linebacker corps and without their first-round draft pick.
Linebackers Bud Dupree, Zach Cunningham, Ola Adeniyi and Joe Jones have been ruled out for Sunday's game (noon CT, CBS) against the Washington Commanders at FedEx Field, Titans coach Mike Vrabel said Friday.

Wide receiver Treylon Burks, the Titans' first-round draft pick in April, was also ruled out with safety Amani Hooker.
Burks was unable to practice this week after suffering a turf toe injury in last week's week in Indianapolis. Dupree also left that game with a hip injury after recovering a Matt Ryan fumble on the game's first drive. Dupree initially suffered a hip injury during the Week 2 loss in Buffalo and missed the Week 3 victory against the Raiders.
Cunningham (elbow) and Hooker (concussion protocol) will miss their second straight games. Hooker returned to practice this week, and Cunningham missed practice Wednesday, according to the Titans' team website.
The Titans have won consecutive games after starting 0-2 for the first time in Vrabel's tenure.
