    SUMMARY: Tennessee Titans Coach Jeff Fisher commented Sunday to the media that the severity of DE Antwan Odom's knee injury remains uncertain and that there will likely be a number of tests before the status of the injury is fully known. "We’re going to have to do some studies," said Fisher. "He’s quite sore today, and in all likelihood, we’ll send him out for a second, maybe third opinion, maybe even a specialist. I can’t comment on how long he’s going to be out, but it’s very unlikely that he will play this week. It’s a knee (injury) and when I get more information, I will get it to you."

    That's great... and the injuries have begun. I guess that will give LaBoy more time to prove himself. It's a shame that we would have a guy go down in such a poorly played game. I hope he's not out for long, but it doesn't sound good the way Fisher is talking...

    LaBoy played better than Odom did last yr

    Laboy's stats 27 tackles, 14 assists and 6.5 sacks

    Odom's stats 18 tackles, 13 assists and 2 sacks

    only thing I am unsure of is starts/games played

    Odom said he could move it fine this AM. Fisher says it's sore. Preliminary dx on radio was strain- based on the replay it looked like an MCL.

    An MRI will tell if there is a partial tear the MCL, meniscus or ACL. If he can move it easily, sounds like it might just be a strain. We'll have to wait on the MRI. The hopeful news is that if is was disastrous, they could likely tell that on the sidelines by physical exam. If they are already calling for 2-3 opinions then they are being extra conservative- probably to make certain nobody sees a tear.

    So basically, he will be back for the start of the 2006 season (or shortly thereafter) for a strain or for the start of 2007 if it is a tear.

    Hope for a strain.

    Depth appears to be an issue for us.

    From the video of how it happened and the descriptions of how he feels it does sound like an MCL sprain to me. It could be a tear but I think he should feel more than soreness and have significantly less mobility in the knee if that was the case.
