Albert Haynesworth and Kyle Vanden Bosch to Miss Rest of Regular Season

New, comments

Jeff Fisher just said in his Monday press conference that Kyle Vanden Bosch and Albert Haynesworth will both miss the rest of the regular season but should be back for the playoffs.  I feel good about the KVB prediction (who apparently injured the same groin but in a different way), but I am not sure how he can make that call on Fat Albert without having the MRI results yet.  Hopefully he is right.

The Titans are now extremely thin on the defensive line.  The Titans currently have just two healthy defensive tackles on the roster with the injury to Haynesworth and the suspension of Kevin Vickerson.  Antonio Johnson sure would look good right about now.  The Titans are going to have to either promote one of the defensive tackles from the practice squad, sign someone from the practice squad of another team or sign someone off the street.

This is obviously a huge blow, but if both guys can be back for the playoffs it isn't the end of the world.  Winning in January is a lot more important than winning in December.
