Jevon Kearse said the knee problem he has been struggling with is actually old damage from when he tore the ACL in his left knee in 2006 while a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.
“I twisted it in practice, but the MRI said there were some things still going on from when I was in Philly,” Kearse said.
Kearse has not been active since Oct. 4 against Jacksonville. He created a stir by not staying for the game against Indianapolis the following Sunday night after being declared inactive. Then, the following week in practice he suffered a foot injury, causing him to be inactive against New England.
Kearse then returned to practice, but injured the knee on the Wednesday before the Jacksonville game and has not practiced since that time.
Kearse, 33, said he expects to be back on the practice field this week in preparation for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo game.
“It’s something that I probably can play through, but I’m going to have to get cleaned up after the season,” Kearse said. “It’s feeling better. I’ve been treating it up the last couple of days.”
Winborn among visitors
The Titans hosted four linebackers and a pair of defensive ends on Tuesday, including former Vanderbilt star Jamie Winborn.
