He was well on his way to being back. Then he felt something give in his knee.
Derrick Morgan missed almost all of his rookie year after tearing his ACL in the fourth game of his career. Now nearly a year removed Morgan thought that was close to being behind him. He got through the first preseason game against the Vikings without a hitch. Then the Titans went to St. Louis and the turf obviously presented a challenge Derrick’s knee wasn’t quite ready for. There is both good and bad news for the Titans in this. The good news is that Dr James Andrews was most likely just clearing up scar tissue from the original surgery and there should be no new damage to the young defensive ends surgically repaired knee. The bad news is the Titans are going to be without someone they were counting on to produce early for them this year.
Looks like the Titans growing pains have started early for first year coach Mike Munchak. Lets hope this is not a sign of things to come this season.
