Tennessee Titans middle linebacker Moise Fokou stretched ligaments in his knee back on Oct. 13 against Seattle and will miss his third straight game on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
According to Coach Mike Munchak, Fokou did not need any surgery to repair the injury, but needed three to five weeks of rest in order to recover and be able to play.
“At his position, it's hard to hide with the way he has to run. It's gonna take, when they say three to five weeks, it's gonna take almost the whole time of that, just because of the position he plays and the demand of it,” Munchak said.
The Titans' goal is to try and get Fokou back on the field even in a limited capacity Thursday night against the Indianapolis Colts in a primetime game. Colin McCarthy will start for the third straight game against Jacksonville this Sunday.
As for other Titans injuries, tackle David Stewart (shoulder) practiced for the first time this week on Friday. Cornerback Tommie Campbell (shoulder) and defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (calf) were held out of practice. All three are questionable on the injury report as are safety Michael Griffin (quadriceps) and linebacker Zaviar Gooden (hamstring), who both practiced all week.
