I just have to deal with it,” Ringer said. “I can’t change it now. I have to get an MRI.”
Coach of the Titans, Mike Munchak said, “He was obviously in a lot of pain when he got injured. … You lose a game, that’s bad enough. When you get guys hurt, that’s the hard part about this.”
This is the second time in 2012 that Ringer has suffered a serious injury. He suffered an elbow injury in the season-opener that became infected. He went through two surgeries and spent four nights in the hospital as a result of cellulitis elbow infection. Doctors told him that the infection could of resulted in amputation of his arm.
