Titans cornerback Jason McCourty said he is “still compiling information” before deciding whether he needs a second surgery on his injured groin, one that likely would end his season, Terry McCormick of the Associated Press reports.
McCourty initially suffered a groin injury Aug. 6 and had surgery Aug. 24, costing him all preseason and the first three games of the regular season. He returned after the Titans’ bye, but the injury flared up again in the same spot forcing him to leave a game Nov. 1 against Houston. He missed last week’s win in New Orleans and is out against Carolina (8-0) on Sunday.
Since then, McCourty and the Titans (2-6) have sought multiple medical opinions, and a final decision on the veteran cornerback’s status is expected next week.
“I’m assuming by then I would be able to make a decision as far as the season and the whole nine,” McCourty said Friday. “I don’t think it’ll be a tough decision for me. It’ll probably be cut and dried. I don’t think it’ll be up to me to say that you can push through it. It’ll probably be decided for me.”
Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey said they’re just giving McCourty a few more days before making a decision.
