Titans unsure of Jack Conklin’s status for Week 1 after playoff ACL tear

Titans right tackle Jack Conklin suffered a torn ACL in the playoff loss to the Patriots, and it remains unclear whether he’ll be good to go for the start of the regular season.

That’s the word from Jim Wyatt of the Titans’ website, who says that it’s too early to say whether Conklin will be on the field when the Titans open the regular season on September 9.

If Conklin is on the field, that would represent a recovery time of less than eight months. That’s pretty fast for an ACL tear, so it would seem more likely than not that the Titans will have to open the season without Conklin, who so far has yet to miss a game in his two-year NFL career.

Conklin has attended Organized Team Activities and minicamp but hasn’t done more than walk around watching. It may still be a while before he can go.

  1. He’s missing time due to injury, Taylor Lewan is missing time because of a holdout, and oh yeah, they have an entirely new coaching staff. I have a bad feeling about the Titans’ O-line…

  2. You don’t need to concern yourself with the Titans OLine. Taylor will be in training camp, and they have added good back-ups. The coaches are not rookies, no worries 😉
