Collins out several weeks with a strained left calf

The Titans will be without QB Kerry Collins for a couple of weeks, as Jeff Fisher says Monday that the veteran QB is out for several weeks with his strained left calf.

Fisher said that an MRI exam showed the extent of Collins’ injury, which occurred at the end of the first half of a 29-17 loss at Miami.

“I don’t know how many. He certainly won’t play this week or be available to play the next two,” Fisher said.

Fisher said Collins’ injury didn’t necessarily mean the Titans will make a move to add an experienced quarterback, even though rookie Rusty Smith, a sixth-round draft pick from Florida Atlantic, will be backing up Young. Fisher said Young was fine and didn’t have any issues with the sprained left ankle that had kept him from starting himself against Miami.
