Report: Titans’ Zach Mettenberger likely out for year
Monday December 8th, 2014

Tennessee Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger is out for the season after having an MRI on his right shoulder on Monday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Mettenberger re-injured the shoulder in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 36-7 loss to the New York Giants at LP Field. He was 14 of 24 for 125 yards and one interception before exiting the game. Jake Locker went 9 of 11 for 81 yards and one interception the rest of the game for the Titans.

Mettenberger initially sprained the shoulder last week against the Houston Texans and was limited throughout the week. According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, X-rays taken at the stadium on Sunday were negative, but the sprain is more significant than the Grade One version he suffered last week.

Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson also dislocated a shoulder in the first quarter, and safety Daimion Stafford was being evaluated for a concussion. Right tackle Byron Stingily hurt his ankle and was unable to return.

The Titans (2-11) have lost seven straight and are tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for last place in the AFC South. They also share the NFL's worst record with the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
