INDIANAPOLIS _ Left tackle Taylor Lewan will have an MRI on left knee after suffering an injury in the fourth quarter and not being able to finish Sunday’s game.
Lewan was injured on the Tennessee Titans’ last drive of the game that ended with DeMarco Murray being stuffed for no gain on fourth and one.
Lewan crumpled to the turf with 5:54 to play and managed to hobble off the field. Perhaps it could be considered good news for the Titans that Lewan was not carted off the field, nor did he retreat to the locker room before the game ended. But the Titans will do a full evaluation of their left tackle on Monday.
“We’re checking out his knee. We don’t know how serious it is,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said.
Lewan declined comment after the game.
The starting left tackle wasn’t the only injury the Titans sustained in the game. Tight end Phillip Supernaw was hit on a special teams play and is now in the concussion protocol.
Also, cornerback Perrish Cox, who gave up a touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton that went right through his hands, said he has been battling a right wrist injury and has been playing with a cast. Cox has not been on the injury report during that time.
“It’s been two weeks now. I’ve been trying to keep it covered up so nobody will get a pick up on it. But after this game, it’s so frustrating giving up something like that. I’m not trying to make no excuse, but it takes away form the game,” Cox said. “The cast on my hand, I hadn’t caught the ball all week. I tried to make sure there was no contact on it, so I won’t injure it any more than it already is.”
Cox, in speaking about the fourth-down play, said he should have just batted the ball away instead.
