How injured are the Tennessee Titans

The old adage is that no one feels sorry for you in the NFL, but the Tennessee Titans have suffered so many injuries that maybe they deserve to be the exception to the rule.

Some teams have dealt with some key injuries, but recently the Tennessee Titans have used the second-most starters of any team in the NFL behind the New Orleans Saints (tweet below).

At this point, people have already forgotten injuries to key role players and potential special teams starts like Rashad Weaver, Cam Batson, Racey McMath, and Trevon Coley.

To illustrate just how bad these injuries have been, I thought that it would be a good time to go back and look at the roster that the Tennessee Titans built this offseason in all of their glory. The fact that the Titans even have a winning record is a testament to how deep this roster was and how well the coaches have done at getting the “next man up” ready.

Now, I feel obligated to say that there is some hope for this roster. If the Titans manage to secure the bye week, it would go a long way towards giving their banged-up players some rest, but even without the extra week, they are still only one game away from their first break in three months.

With that rest on the horizon, it is time to appreciate just how hurt this team is.
