DE Morgan’s Status for Opener in Doubt

Defensive end Derrick Morgan’s status for the regular season opener on September 11th at Jacksonville is in serious doubt as he continues to deal with discomfort in his surgically-repaired left knee according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

Morgan traveled to Birmingham, Ala., on Monday to see Dr. James Andrews, who performed the surgery last fall. The first-round pick last year did not practice last week nor play in Saturday’s game against the Bears. He’s already been ruled out of Thursday’s game against the Saints.

Indications are there is nothing structurally wrong with the knee, but the Titans and Morgan are looking for answers on how they should handle issues moving forward.

“I think unfortunately with the ACL sometimes you hit this thing where you get some soreness in the first year and he hit the wall last week with his,” Coach Mike Munchak said Monday. “He had a good day, a bad day, a good day, and he just couldn’t get over the hump. So he traveled to see Dr. Andrews to see what is going on, how we can get that thing settled down.”
