Tennessee Titans wide receiver Jaelens Strong will be out for the rest of the season, coach Mike Mularkey announced Monday.
He missed Sunday’s 31-20 loss to the Detroit Lions because of a left knee injury.
He was expected to play against the Detroit Bears on Monday night.
Strong is 6-5, 215 pounds.
Mularkeys comments after practice: I thought Jaelene was very good this week, and I think she was able to do what we asked her to do, and that was catch the ball well, run a lot, get on the end of the ball, get upfield.
MCSports.com’s Jeff Legwold was on the field at Tennessee’s practice facility to provide a more in-depth look at the injury.
“I thought she played well, and it’s something we’ll get into in the next few days,” Mularks said.
“I think Jael is doing a good job of getting on the ball and running the ball.
She’s got some ability to be a receiver, and she has a very good ability to catch the football.
I’m sure it’s going to be up to her to continue to get better.
The Titans (22-6) have won four straight, and Mularck said he was confident they would win their fifth consecutive game.
In the past three weeks, Mularcks team has scored 30 or more points four times.
He also said he doesn’t expect the Titans (7-6, 2-5 AFC South) to be ranked in the bottom 10 for the first time since 2009.
We just got to keep working, keep working,” Muelks said after practice.
“We’ve got to do it the right way.
We’re not going to win the division.
We have to do a better job of just staying healthy.”
Mularck also said there is still some good work to be done before the Titans begin their bye week.
Mules team will face the Dallas Cowboys on Monday.
Mularks team had a bye week before the Lions.
