Titans tight end Craig Stevens will miss up to two weeks after having arthroscopic surgery performed on his right knee.
Stevens, a source told TitanInsider, actually suffered the injury against the San Diego Chargers just before the bye week, but once swelling flared up and he could not finish the game in Miami last Sunday, a decision was made to go ahead and have surgery to correct a piece of cartilage that was floating loose in the knee.
Stevens watched practice and said afterward that he is day to day with the injury.
“It's been kind of bothering me for a while, and I kind of strained it again in Miami,” Stevens said. “It's kind of a day-to-day thing. It's up to the coaches. We'll see how I feel. I feel pretty good. I'm actually feeling really good.”
With Stevens on the shelf, it opens up more playing time for Jared Cook, who has been stuck behind both Stevens and Bo Scaife in the tight end pecking order this season.
As for other Titans injuries, quarterback Kerry Collins will be doubtful with a calf injury, but might be able to be the emergency third quarterback.
Receiver Kenny Britt (hamstring) remains out, while safety Vincent Fuller (hamstring) did not practice and is questionable. Cornerback Cortland Finnegan (shin) and defensive tackle Tony Brown (knee) practiced fully and are probable. Kicker Rob Bironas (back) was limited but is probable.
