Tennessee Titans cornerback Jason McCourty will be day-to-day with the concussion he suffered in Sunday's 23-17 victory over the Buffalo Bills.
“He still has some concussion-type symptoms, mild,” Coach Mike Munchak said.. “It’s something that will probably be day-by-day and see where he is by the end of the week. With those, you have to be very careful these days with that and we will be.”
McCourty suffered the injury in the first half and did not return to the game. He was making a tackle on Buffalo's Lee Smith, when teammate Akeem Ayers, also trying to make the tackle, hit him, causing the injury. There is a chance McCourty could practice by the end of the week and potentially play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, whose passing attack will be the No. 1 priority for the Titans defense to try and stop.
“We will have to see how he is by Friday, that Thursday, Friday area to see how he comes around,” Munchak said. “He is feeling pretty good today so it’s just a matter if he continues to feel that way, kind of like Jared Cook a couple of weeks ago had one or had one similar. It’s just how quickly he feels good and how quickly he can pass a quick test and he would be out there. We will just have to wait and see on him.”
Also, receiver Nate Washington could miss a day or two with his injured ankle, but Munchak believes he should be able to play against the Saints. Washington underwent an MRI on Monday.
“We think he is going to be OK, it’s going to be a day-to-day thing with an ankle. We all know that he pushed it a little bit and went back in there,” Munchak said. “He knew how important the game was, he made a big catch for us on the third down to keep the drive going for us in the third quarter.
“He is having a great year and there is no doubt that it will be important to have him in the lineup. All indications are that he will be questionable during the week but we assume that he will be available on Sunday.”
