But the 6-foot-3 Dawson did have three sacks in the preseason and was used as a pass rusher off the bench before his injury. He has played in 63 career NFL games with 20 starts mostly in Indianapolis with two in Detroit before joining the Titans. He also has 109 tackles.

Dawson was hurt early in last week's 44-41 overtime win over Detroit. The 6-foot-6, 287-pound Egboh had been on the Titans' opening day roster, but he was inactive for the opener against New England. The Titans released him two days later. Egboh spent last season on the practice squad.
