The Steelers got good news on the injury front as starting left tackle Max Starks has a low ankle sprain and probably won't miss more than a game.

Starks may practice on a limited basis this week and head coach Mike Tomlin did not rule him out for the Steelers' 1 p.m. game Sunday at Tennessee.

He also did not rule out nose tackle Casey Hampton (hamstring) playing against the Titans.

"We're hopeful that he might be able to do something," Tomlin said in regard to practice.

Jonathan Scott will start in place of Starks if the latter is unable to go while Chris Hoke would play in place of Hampton.

Dennis Dixon will start again at quarterback even though Byron Leftwich may practice on a limited basis this week.

Dixon threw for 236 yards in the Steelers' 15-9 win against the Falcons last Sunday.

"Dennis is going to lead us into Nashville," Tomlin said.
