League-wide look: Just how bad are the Titans' hamstring injuries?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – As frustrated as the Titans and their fans may be with the hamstring injuries that have stalled the team this season, a broad, detailed look at similar injuries around the league reveal the franchise is hardly the worst-hit by the injury.

Nine different Titans have combined to miss 11 games for the Titans. That's nowhere as bad as the Broncos (24 missed games) or Giants (21). Though Tennessee would certainly like to be more like Seattle and San Francisco, who've not lost a single game.

It's an injury A.J. Brown rates as knock-on-wood worthy.

“I don’t even like to talk about it, to be honest,” he said. “I don’t even say the word, for real. That’s an injury that you just don’t want to have. You’d rather have something else happen to you than it. It sidelines you for a couple weeks and as soon as you think you are over it, it comes back again.”
