Mularkey says Titans right guard has torn tendon in finger

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee right guard Chance Warmack has a torn tendon in a finger on his right hand, and coach Mike Mularkey says the Titans are discussing whether the lineman needs surgery or can play with the injury.

Mularkey said Monday that Warmack could miss anywhere from a couple weeks to more than a month if he has surgery. If Warmack tries to play with the injury, then the guard would have to play with his hand wrapped up like a club. Mularkey says that is difficult to do at that position.

The 10th overall draft pick in 2013, Warmack finished Tennessee's 16-15 win in Detroit with the injury. Warmack is in the final year of his contract having started all 48 games he's played.
