The Tennessee Titans may have gotten a huge piece back, but they'll also be without a number of players in the divisional round.

Per Titans PR Kim Smith, five members of Tennessee's team won't suit up Saturday evening against the Bengals. Including wide receiver Dez Fitzpatrick and offensive lineman Dillon Radunz. As well as defenders Derick Roberson, Rashaan Evans, Larrell Murchison and Teair Tart.

The one-seeded Titans kick off in Music City at 4:30 PM ET. Saturday's playoff matchup will see the return of running back Derrick Henry, who's missed the last nine games due to a foot injury. King Henry reportedly won't be on a pitch count when he sees his first NFL action in 83 days. The former 2,000-yard rusher was a massive part of Tennessee reaching last year's AFC Championship game after a monster upset of the Baltimore Ravens.

Now the Titans set their sights on another AFC North team in the Bengals. Joe Burrow looked terrific in his professional playoff debut. And the Titans will likely try to grind it out on the ground to keep it out of the former Heisman winner's hands.
