Jeff Fisher didn't seem too concerned with Michael Roos' right knee injury.
Roos exited the ballgame in the first half, and was replaced by Troy Kropog, because of a mild knee sprain. According to Fisher, no MRI was necessary on the starting left tackle.
The Titans are already without backup tackle Mike Otto, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last Thursday. If Roos cannot go, it leaves the Titans a bit thin at the tackle position with Kropog stepping into the starting lineup and Michael Toudouze as the only backup.
As for other injuries, Fisher indicated that he has not ruled any players out for the game on Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints, but did say he might hold receiver Nate Washington out of the lineup again to rest his sore left wrist. Washington first injured the wrist in OTAs and has on a few occasions been bothered by the injury on the practice field throughout training camp.
“There's a chance I may hold Nate, just to put this thing behind him so it doesn't linger,” Fisher said.
Justin Gage, the Titans other starting receiver, has been out with a thumb injury, one he says will carry over into the regular season, though he plans to try and play through it with a splint on his hand.
Tight end Bo Scaife was held out for what Fisher termed “tightness” Saturday night, but should be fine.
Linebacker Colin Allred was held out again. He had had a burner last week before the Arizona game.
Rookie receiver Damian Williams had his shoulder pop out on a fumbled punt return, but returned to finish the game at receiver.
Rookie linebacker Rennie Curran had a hamstring strain as well against the Panthers.
As reported last week by TitanInsider, defensive tackle Tony Brown will be activated from the PUP list and should play some against the Saints.
Cornerback Cortland Finnegan (groin), defensive end William Hayes (knee) and linebacker David Thornton (on PUP with hip and shoulder injuries) have missed all the preseason. Hayes has said he has hopes of playing this week.
TitanInsider: Any closer and you'd be in the huddle.
