NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Michael Roos has started every single game for the Tennessee Titans since being drafted in the second round back in 2005, a streak now in peril of ending at 119 straight.

Hey, even NFL players have to heal after emergency appendectomies.

The left tackle played through discomfort in last week's 35-34 win at Buffalo. He returned home and couldn't sleep before finally heading to the hospital at 4 a.m. Monday where he met a team doctor to have his appendix removed.

Roos says the streak is a source of pride but he will have to see how he feels day by day before the Titans (3-4) play the Colts (3-3) on Sunday.

If Roos can't play, reserve Mike Otto would start in his first action this season.
