Titans place Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve


A day after placing right tackle David Stewart on injured reserve due to a broken leg, the Tennessee Titans had to end the season for yet another starting offensive lineman.

Tennessee placed left guard Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve Wednesday. He’s the fourth starting offensive lineman the Titans have lost for the season joining Stewart, center Eugene Amano and right guard Leroy Harris.

Hutchinson suffered a knee injury in Sunday’s loss to the Houston Texans. Tennessee claimed guard Mitch Petrus off waivers from the New England Patriots to take Hutchinson’s spot on the active roster.

Left tackle Michael Roos is also dealing with a knee injury coming from the game against the Texans. He did not practice Wednesday for Tennessee. Wide receiver Damian Williams (hamstring) and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley (toe) also were held out of practice.

  1. Steve has been my favorite lineman for years. I became a fan when he was in Seattle. I was super stoked when the Vikings *stole* him from the SeaChickens. I watched every game he played as a Viking. It’s hard watching the decline of someone who played at such a high level for so many years. But old age catches up with everyone. I hope he gets a serious shot at the HOF. Blocking for a great rusher in Shaun Alexander in Seattle, and blocking for the best RB in the history of the sport in Adrian Peterson.

  2. Steve Hutchinson is a first ballot Hall Of Fame in my opinion. He has been a solid rock for years in Seattle and Minny.

    If Steve was able to play for another twenty years, he would be right on par with Bruce Matthews.

  3. Hopefully Mr. Hutchinson doesn’t end his career on this note, he’s a beast of a player and always a guy who scared me while watching him on the television. Best of luck to you Big Guy!
