Injuries: Titans' Logan Ryan (fibula) out for rest of '18

Print

The Tennessee Titans will attempt to keep their playoff hopes alive in the final two weeks of the season without starting cornerback Logan Ryan.

The 27-year-old announced Monday that he broke his left fibula in Sunday's victory over the New York Giants.

Ryan limped off the field during the 17-0 win and was seen in the locker room after the game on crutches, per ESPN's Turron Davenport.

Ryan, who started all 14 games, was enjoying a solid season on the Titans' backend, compiling 76 tackles, eight passes defended and four sacks.

The loss of the reliable corner is big for the 8-6 Titans, who still own a shot at snagging the final AFC playoff spot. Sans Ryan, Tennessee will lean on Adoree' Jackson, Malcolm Butler and LeShaun Sims in the final two weeks versus the Redskins and Colts.

Other injuries we're monitoring around the league on Monday:

1. Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson announced Nick Foles will once again start in place of Carson Wentz (back) when Philadelphia plays the Texans in Week 16. Wentz, however, is not expected to be placed on injured reserve, per Pederson.

2. The New York Giants are hopeful that Odell Beckham (quad) will be ready to play this Sunday after missing the past two games.

3. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd suffered a low-grade MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Raiders, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Boyd had an MRI on Sunday and could miss time.

4. San Francisco 49ers cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon suffered a knee sprain in Sunday's win over Seattle, Rapoport reported. The 49ers placed him on injured reserve Monday, coach Kyle Shanahan said.

5. Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid said cornerback Kendall Fuller underwent surgery on his hand/wrist. He said there's a good chance Fuller will not miss playing time because of the injury.

6. Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore will miss the final two weeks of the season with a mid-foot sprain, Rapoport reported. It is unclear if Gore will need surgery, per Rapoport.

7. Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy said defensive back Eddie Jackson (ankle) and outside linebacker Aaron Lynch (elbow) are going through tests right now on their injuries. "We're keeping our fingers crossed for both of them," he said. "I don't think either one of them are season ending."

8. Los Angeles Chargers tight end Hunter Henry, lost for what was expected to be the entire 2018 season to an ACL tear suffered in May, returned to practice Monday but remains on the physically unable to perform list. Henry has a 21-day window to either be activated or miss the remainder of the season, which includes the postseason.

9. Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, placed on injured reserve in early December, had surgery this past week on his ailing foot, a source told Rapoport. He is expected to make a full recovery.

10. Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley briefly exited Sunday's game vs. the Eagles with a knee injury but later returned. Rams coach Sean McVay said he's dealing with inflammation in his knee and is considered day to day. He is on track to play in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals, Rapoport reported.

11. Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said safety Ronnie Harris will be placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.

12. Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley remains in concussion protocol after leaving early during Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

13. Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware is still day to day with a hamstring injury, coach Andy Reid said.

14. Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said there's a chance linebacker K.J. Wright (knee) could play against the Chiefs on Sunday if all goes well in practice this week.

15. New Orleans Saints center Max Unger exited Monday's game against the Carolina Panthers in the third quarter after suffering a concussion.
