NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A bad season got worse for the Tennessee Titans Monday when Mike Mularkey revealed both Derrick Morgan and Dexter McCluster are done for the season.
Morgan had surgery on a shoulder injury today that has kept him out of the last three games. In those three games, the Titans pass defense struggled giving up an extra 70 yards passing per game.
Brian Orakpo also does not have a single sack since Morgan went down.
McCluster is headed for wrist surgery Tuesday after breaking his right wrist Sunday against the Jets.
McCluster finishes the season with 247 yards rushing and 31 receptions for 260 yards and a touchdown.
McCluster was also a vital part of the Titans special teams unit returning both punts and kicks. Those units have struggled without him this year.
Since Mularkey took over six games ago, the Titans have not been able to put McCluster and Kendall Wright on the field at the same time.
Wright missed Sunday’s game with a rib injury, he’s expected to try to run Tuesday.
