Curtis suffers broken bone in hand

Newly acquired wide receiver Kevin Curtis suffered a fractured bone in his left hand during the Tennessee Titans final preseason game Thursday night in New Orleans.

The plan was for Curtis, signed just last week to a one-year deal, to get plenty of work against the Saints in order for the Titans to evaluate his chances on short notice for a roster spot.

Instead, the Titans now must make a quick choice on what to do with the 33-year-old receiver. They have three options. They can hold on to him and wait for him to heal, place him on injured reserve or reach an injury settlement with him.

According to Titans coach Mike Munchak and agent Bruce Tollner, who represents Curtis, that decision has not yet been made.

The Titans had hoped Curtis would come in and earn a spot on the 53-man roster among the team's top five or six wideouts.
