Tennessee Titans believe Kendall Wright avoided ACL tear

Tennessee Titans starting wide receiver Kendall Wright left the team’s preseason game on Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals on a cart, which is never something that you want to see, after suffering a knee injury.

The dreaded ACL tear is always a concern, but the early results are positive as the x-rays and MRI taken of his injured right knee did not show any ligament damage. However, that hasn’t stopped Wright from being concerned about his knee.

I am pretty worried about it right now because it is stiff,” Wright said. “I tried to walk on it, but had to get on the cart. … Hopefully it won’t be bad.”

With the ACL disaster seemingly averted, the belief is that Wright suffered a sprained knee. The severity is unknown.

The injury will likely keep the Titans top wide receiver out for the remainder of the preseason, but at least he could return in time for the start of the regular season when the team will need any weapon possible in order for Jake Locker to show some improvement.
