    This could be terrible if he is out for extended time.

    I know he came back in, but if he couldn't finish. I doubt he plays next week

    He came back in the game, so I doubt it wasn't bad.

    Wyatt said he was wearing a boot in the locker room after, but Colin said he expects to play next week.

    Looked like an ankle sprain. Put it in a boot, RICE, and he will be 90 percent next week.

    As if getting battered by the New England Patriots’ offense wasn’t bad enough, the Titans were left hoping that the ankle injury suffered by middle linebacker Colin McCarthy isn’t too serious.

    McCarthy suffered the injury toward the latter end of the second quarter, limping off the field after a six-yard run by Danny Woodhead. He came back before halftime and actually started the third quarter, but was soon replaced by Will Witherspoon when it became clear the ankle was still giving him problems.

    McCarthy was sporting a walking boot in the locker room following the contest, and he wasn’t much interested in talking about the injury.

    “I just tweaked my ankle. I’ll be fine,” McCarthy said before leaving the locker room.

    Said Titans coach Mike Munchak: “(McCarthy) came back in and went back out, so we’ll need to see exactly where he is and how sore he is.”

    McCarthy is in his second year, but as evidenced by the fact he was elected a team captain, is considered one of the Titans’ defensive leaders. He led the Titans with eight tackles for loss last year despite starting just seven games.

    “He’s a key piece to this defense,” Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley said. “I don’t know the extent of what happened, but hopefully he’ll be better quick, and he’ll be able to get back on the field to help us as soon as possible.”
