Tennessee Titans cornerback Logan Ryan will miss the final weeks of the season. He has suffered a broken fibula.
Instead of an NFL Insider breaking the news first, Ryan announced the news himself. He was injured on Sunday against the New York Giants.
“I broke my left fibula and will miss the remainder of the season,” Ryan wrote. “I poured my heart and soul into this season so it is unfortunate. However, anyone who knows me knows how relentlessly I will train to come back a better player with fewer weaknesses.
“I am proud of how I played, I’m proud of how my team is playing, and I’m proud I was able to walk off the field with a broken leg. I will continue to support the team and coach up the DBs while we make this run for the playoffs. Also I am proud to say my 76 tackles this season raised over $12,000 for animal rescue. It’s all Love.”
This is a tough blow for the Titans defense moving forward. Without Ryan, the Titans will have to count on LeShaun Sims as his replacement.
Without Ryan, the Titans will have to count more on fellow former Patriots player Malcolm Butler and Joshua Kalu besides Leshaun Sims. The Titans could also sign an additional cornerback for the stretch run and potentially playoffs.
The 27-year-old Berlin, New Jersey native started 14 games in his second season for the Titans. He had 76 tackles, including four tackles for a loss, and a five quarterback hits.
Ryan also has 4.0 sacks and eight pass deflections.
In his final game of this season before his injury in the rain at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, he had two tackles, including one tackle for a loss and one quarterback hit. He also had 1.0 sacks and two pass deflections.
His best game of the season in regards to tackles was in Week 12 against the Houston Texans. He had 11 tackles. This was the only time he had more than 10 tackles in a game this season.
