A team would always prefer to find out that the injury is a sprain as opposed to a torn ligament.
The Titans believe that is how things have played out for WR Kendall Wright, who left Saturday night’s game against the Bengals in the second quarter. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that “early indications” are that Wright, who did not report hearing the telltale pop when he got hurt, avoided a torn ACL after having x-rays and an MRI taken of his right knee.
Wright said it was very stiff and was obviously concerned about it, but it looks like he may have dodged the torn ligament bullet. He'll likely sit out the remaining preseason games. If he misses regular season time, Nate Washington gets a bump up.
