Mike Otto could be out a little while longer as he recovers from arthroscopic knee surgery done in late August.
Most of the time, such a procedure takes about two to four weeks for a player to return, but Otto is now entering his fourth week since the surgery and is still not ready to return to practice yet.
“It was kind of a deal that when I got it scoped out, it was a little bit more than a usual. They found a little bit more wrong in there,” Otto said. “They kind of said, we're just gonna take day by day and see how it goes with it.”
Otto said that he has increased his activity in his rehab work of late.
“I'm getting better every day. I'm starting to do some more stuff. I've been moving around and doing some active stuff with it as opposed to just kind of lifting and working. It's getting better every day,” Otto said.
Coach Jeff Fisher indicated that Otto probably won't practice on Friday.
Defensive end Jacob Ford his injured right leg (sprained knee and ankle) wrapped from the knee down as he watched practice on Thursday.
Also, defensive end Tony Brown was on his regular midweek off schedule, but he is expected to practice on Friday and play Sunday at the New York Giants.
