NASHVILLE -- The Tennessee Titans took exception to Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's extended dance mix celebration in the end zone as he capped Carolina's 27-10 victory.

Interim head coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that he thought Newton "violated a code of ethics" with his prolonged end-zone celebration. After the game on Sunday, several Titans defensive players took issue with Newton's antics.

"He wanted to put on a show at the end of the game like he did something. But he didn't really do nothing this whole game," defensive end Jurrell Casey said.

Linebacker Avery Williamson was one of the Titans players who made their way toward Newton as he continued to dance and was not impressed.

"I don't like it personally. You saw my reaction to it. He wants to be the man, so he wants to celebrate because he scored. But I don't personally go for that stuff," Williamson said.

--The Titans will be wearing all powder blue uniforms for Thursday night's game against the Jaguars as part of the NFL color rush campaign. The Titans uniforms are plenty loud and bold colored, but hardly a drop in the bucket to the gold uniforms they will be sporting in the game.

The promotion began last Thursday night when the Jets wore a metallic looking green and the Bills were in bright red.

Notes: Cornerback Jason McCourty (groin) is having a second surgery on his injured groin and will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season with only four games played. ... Wide receiver Kendall Wright (knee) is testing his sprained MCL out this week to see if he can return after missing two games because of it. The Titans are short-handed at receiver after Justin Hunter's severe ankle injury. Hunter underwent surgery on his broken right ankle on Monday, a day after suffering the injury in a loss to the Panthers. He will be placed on injured reserve.
