NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Titans offensive lineman Josue Matias will need surgery to repair a tear of his patella tendon, and coach Mike Mularkey says the guard will be headed to injured reserve.

Mularkey said Sunday that Matias will need six months to recover and already had surgery on the knee. Matias is an undrafted free agent out of Florida State who spent last season on the practice squad.

Mularkey says Matias had been playing well and able to play both guard and tackle.

The coach says the Titans will be monitoring the waiver wire in case they need to add depth on the offensive line.
