Browns CB Jason McCourty is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He suffered an ankle injury in Thursday's practice and then sat out Friday's workout completely. If he misses the game, it'll help the fantasy outlook for Titans WR Rishard Matthews. Even if McCourty plays, he's not likely to be at full effectiveness.
The Titans this week dumped veteran CB Jason McCourty. The 29-year-old (30 in October) spent 8 seasons in Tennessee but lost 16 games to injury over the past 2 years. He's likely to find a new landing spot fairly easily in a league always hungry for solid CBs. We'll see whether that new home keeps McCourty in a full-time role and supports his consistent IDP value.
The Titans on Monday released starting CB Perrish Cox. The move comes less than a week after HC Mike Mularkey gave the dreaded vote of confidence amid questions over whether Cox's poor play might get him demoted. Tennessee promoted rookie CB Kalan Reed from the practice squad, but Antwon Blake and LeShaun Sims look like the top candidates to join Jason McCourty and Brice McCain among the top 3 at the position. The Titans rotated Sims in with Cox on Sunday. McCourty was limited to just 42% of the snaps at Chicago while dealing with a knee injury. According to ESPN's Paul Kuharsky, McCourty said after the game he thinks it's "just a little bone bruise."
Titans CB Jason McCourty will need another surgery on his groin and is headed for IR, according to Jim Wyatt of the team website. McCourty had his start to the season delayed by sports hernia surgery that knocked him out for nearly all of training camp and the preseason as well. He has missed the past 2 games with groin trouble. Perrish Cox, Blidi Wreh-Wilson and Coty Sensabaugh should operate as the Titans' top 3 CBs the rest of the way. Cox missed Sunday's loss to the Panthers with a hamstring injury.
Titans CB Jason McCourty is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints because of a groin injury that has yet to get out of his way since costing him the whole preseason. The Tennessean reports that he plans to test it Saturday after missing practice all week. We'll see how that goes, but even an active McCourty would carry plenty of risk for your IDP lineup.
Titans HC Ken Whisenhunt announced Monday that CB Jason McCourty has had surgery to repair a groin injury that has kept him out since Aug. 6. “It just wasn’t responding as quickly as we would’ve liked, so he had that surgery done and it went very well,” Whisenhunt said, according to The Associated Press. “And now it’s just a process of rehab. I don’t know the exact time of rehab, but I’m not ruling him out for the first game." McCourty's greatest asset as an IDP selection is his relative safety at a highly volatile position. This injury chips away at that and makes him less attractive for your fantasy football draft.
Titans CB Jason McCourty is active for the Week 3 game against the Bengals. A groin injury limited him in practice all week and will add some risk to his IDP profile today. We'd opt for someone else if you have a similarly valued option available.
