Rishard Matthews and Derrick Morgan coming back from knee surgeries

Paul Kuharsky breaks the story!

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

Well after months of not having any idea what injury Rishard Matthews is coming back from, Paul Kuharsky got information that he had knee surgery for a torn meniscus. Kudos to PK for getting information that people have been chasing for a very long time. Kuharsky also says that Matthews is very close to returning to the practice field. Clearly, that is very good news.

The bad news here is that Derrick Morgan suffered a similar injury in the game against the Buccaneers. It is unlikely that he will be ready for week 1. It is so huge that the Titans were able to get Harold Landry in the draft. Landry will fill in for Morgan opposite Brian Orakpo- assuming he is ready to go week 1.

Hopefully if Morgan will be back sooner rather than later because the Titans need depth at outside linebacker. Sharif Finch might get some pretty good run against the Dolphins.
