Titans Starting Safety Johnathan Cyprien to Miss a Few Weeks

(The Florida Times-Union, Will Dickey)

Titans head coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that starting safety Johnathan Cyprien will be out for “a few weeks,” Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Cyprien suffered a hamstring injury halfway through the fourth quarter of the Titans’ 26-16 loss to the Raiders and did not return. The Titans called it a strained hamstring after the game.

“Fortunately, we have some depth at that position,” Mularkey said. “We have some guys that can step in.”

Da’Norris Searcy, who started 14 games for the Titans last season, will step in for Cyprien. The Titans also have safeties Brynden Trawick and Curtis Riley on the 53-man roster.

Cyprien, who signed a four-year, $25 million deal to leave Jacksonville for Tennessee in March, struggled with tackling and taking bad angles against the Raiders, but he was looking forward to rebounding in his return to Jacksonville.

    That’s OK, it’s not like the Titans were going to be any good with or without him.
