Titans’ David Stewart breaks leg

The Titans fell behind early against the Texans today, but the news on the injury report is even worse than the news on the scoreboard.

David Stewart, a right tackle who has been a starter in Tennessee for seven years and started every game this season, was carted off the field after Texans linebacker Barrett Rudd rolled onto Stewart’s leg in a pile. The Titans quickly confirmed that Stewart had suffered a broken leg.

Although there’s no official word about the severity of the break or any ligament or tendon damage, with only a month left in the year Stewart has already been declared out for the season.

With Stewart out, Mike Otto moved into the right tackle spot.
