Report: Titans' Colin McCarthy to likely need surgery

The Titans are preparing for life without inside linebacker Colin McCarthy.

After injuring his shoulder in Saturday's 20-16 preseason win over the Green Bay Packers, McCarthy underwent initial tests that suggested he'll require season-ending surgery, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

McCarthy is slated to get a second opinion next week before going under the knife.

A fourth-round pick of the Titans in 2011, the oft-injured McCarthy was battling for a roster spot under new coach Ken Whisenhunt, who called the injury "significant."

The addition of Wesley Woodyard in the offseason pushed McCarthy down the pecking order, as did Tennessee's scheme shift to a 3-4 defense under coordinator Ray Horton. In the final year of his rookie deal, this could be it for McCarthy in Tennessee.
