    Middle linebacker Colin McCarthy will make his first start of the season on Sunday.

    Titans coach Mike Munchak said Tuesday on his weekly radio show that McCarthy will start in place of Moise Fokou, who suffered a knee injury in last Sunday’s loss to Seattle. Fokou had posted the second-most tackles (45) on the team and was tied for the team lead with two forced fumbles.

    McCarthy was the team’s starting middle linebacker last year when healthy, but he only played in seven games due to an ankle injury and a concussion. He didn’t play in the team’s last four games in 2012.

    McCarthy was competing with Fokou for the starting spot this year, but lost his chance at the spot when a hamstring injury sidelined him for much of training camp.

    Munchak didn’t say Tuesday how long Fokou would be out, but he’d said Monday that the worst-case scenario for Fokou would be “week-to-week.”

    I missed my Crutches. Hopefully he'll be starting every game for the rest of the year, and then some!

    Not gonna lie, I was kinda happy when Fokou got hurt, but McCarthy didn't play real well when he came in. I'll chalk that up to lack of 1st team reps.

    There's a difference between wanting a guy to get hurt and not wanting him on the field.

    I'm glad Fokou won't be playing because I've seen McCarthy make big time plays. I'm not happy it had to happen by injury.

    First, we no longer have Ball Sacks to look forward to.

    Now, no more Fokyou? Sigh

    Glad to have McCarthy back in the middle. Hope Fokou is ok. McCarthy makes plays and we need some of that. As solid as Fokou has been he doesn't make big plays like Colin can/has.

    Colin, Zach and Akeem make for a damn good group of LBs.
