Titans center Eugene Amano out for season with torn triceps


The Tennessee Titans have lost a starter on their offensive line to a training camp injury.

Eugene Amano, a center who started all 16 games last season and was slated to start again this season, is out for the season with a torn triceps, coach Mike Munchak confirmed today.

The Titans searched in free agency for potential improvements over Amano at the center position, but after their attempts to sign Jeff Saturday, Scott Wells and Chris Myers failed, they figured they would have Amano back this season. Instead, they need to scramble.

Kevin Matthews, who was listed as second behind Amano on the Titans’ depth chart, is currently being held out because of post-concussion symptoms. That leaves Fernando Velasco, a third-year player who has just three starts in his NFL career, to move over to the starting center spot.

    I concur…the interior line was terrible…it starts with the center. This is truly a blessing.

    Trade scenario for the Titans: the Atlanta Falcons trade center Todd McClure the ageless wonder to youse guys for a 4th round draft pick in 2013.

    I’m a Oilers-Titans fan for many years, it’s no secret that the Titans offense needs an upgrade at Center…sorry to say Eugene Amano wasn’t cutting it….
