Bad news from Tennessee Titans camp today:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Rookie LB Deiontrez Mount suffered a torn ACL in Wednesday&#39;s practice, tests revealed <a href="https://twitter.com/Titans">@Titans</a></p>&mdash; Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) <a href="https://twitter.com/jwyattsports/status/654736998855405568">October 15, 2015</a></blockquote>

This is really bad for the Titans on a couple of fronts:

1- Mount is a promising rookie.  The only thing that is going to help him get better is by playing.  Now he is out for the season.  That sets his development back.

2- The Titans don't have any depth at the outside linebacker position.  They pretty much ignore it in every draft, so it is hard to figure out why they don't have guys there, but they don't.

Most of all, it stinks for Deiontrez as a person.  You hate to see any player injured, but especially a guy who is fighting for playing time in his rookie year.  Hopefully his rehab will go easily and he will be ready to go for training camp next year.
