Tennessee Titans right guard Leroy Harris is scheduled to undergo further testing on his injured right knee on Wednesday afternoon, according to sources, leaving his status for when he might be able to play again up in the air.
Harris left Sunday’s 19-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in the first half and did not return. There was even an early fear that his injury might be season-ending. However, the Titans now appear more optimistic that that might not be the case. Harris had an MRI on Monday.
Coach Mike Munchak said at his Monday press conference that more information would be needed regarding Harris’ injury, though he hoped it would not end his season.
“We don’t know. It’s hard to tell that way. I don’t think so, but again, I don’t know all that,” Munchak said Monday. “He’s walking around and we’ll have to wait and see what they see and if it needs attention, if it doesn’t and can kind of heal on its own, if rest takes care of it and it’s just a matter of there’s not enough information.”
Harris has been plagued by problems in his right knee pretty much all season long, having to rest in training camp and take Wednesdays off in practice up until the past two weeks. He had a procedure done on the knee as well as his shoulder in the off-season.
Harris, whose knee "gave out," according to Munchak, was replaced by Kevin Matthews on Sunday as the Titans other guard, Deuce Lutui was inactive for the game.
On Tuesday, the Titans waived safety Tracy Wilson to open up a spot on the 53-man roster. That spot will go to veteran guard Kyle DeVan, who was in camp with Tennessee this summer.
Wilson is expected to return to the Titans practice squad if he clears waivers.
