Titans Defensive Tackle Injures Knee

The Tennessee Titans dominated the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football for a 27-17 win, but the victory may have come at a price. Defensive tackle Denico Autry exited in the first half with a knee injury and did not return. He'll get an MRI today to determine the knee's stability. Autry notched a quarterback hit and blocked an extra point in the Titans' impressive win. He'd been sensational to this point in the season, notching a team-high 7.0 sacks through the first nine games of the season and earning a career-high 80.3 overall grade from Pro Football Focus.

Autry's injury is not considered season-ending, but the MRI will tell the tale. He'll probably miss at least a little bit of time, but at 7-3 and with a three-game lead in the AFC South, the Titans can begin looking to the postseason. So long as Autry is back for the playoffs, the team should be happy.

Autry joined the Titans in 2021 following three years with the Indianapolis Colts. He has been a consistently productive pass rusher at defensive tackle since 2015 and particularly deadly since 2018; he has notched 36.0 sacks in his previous 67 appearances.
