The Tennessee Titans have waived offensive tackle David Stewart after he failed a physical.

Stewart, a fourth-round draft pick out of
Mississippi State in 2005, had started 116 games for the Titans since
2006.

He broke his right leg Dec. 2, 2012, in a game with the Houston
Texans. Even though he played 12 games last season, he rarely practiced
while struggling with injuries. Stewart said late last season he
expected he would need surgery during the offseason.

In a team statement Wednesday announcing the move,
Titans general manager Ruston Webster said, “He played the game with
passion and brought a toughness that every team needs. Dave was a player
we have always been able to count on, and in our mind he will always be
a Titan.”
