NASHVILLE -- Rookie cornerback Andre Woolfolk's sprained left ankle could sideline him for the season, but coach Jeff Fisher said Monday the team will seek a second opinion.
That wasn't the only bad news for the Titans as they head into
their bye week. Starting receiver Drew Bennett strained his left
calf and may miss up to a month, but the Titans currently have seven receivers on the roster.
Woolfolk caught his left foot in a pile during the second half
of Sunday's 30-17 victory over Jacksonville, and the game was
delayed several minutes while trainers and a team doctor tended to
him on the field. He later was carted off to the locker room.
The cornerback had an MRI, but results were not immediately
available Monday. Fisher said the second opinion could come as soon
``He has some extensive damage to his ankle. It may require
surgery,'' Fisher said. ``That could be some time. That could be
the season for him. We're going to kind of keep our fingers crossed
and hope it's not as severe as we expect it to be.''
Under the best circumstances, Woolfolk would miss three to four
weeks. He also sprained the big toe on the same foot in the
preseason, which kept him out of the first two games of the season.
Woolfolk has been the fifth defensive back in passing situations
for the past six games.
Bennett currently is tied with tight end Erron Kinney as the
team's second-leading receiver with 23 catches, and he is second on
the team with 372 yards receiving.
