Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder.
Mettenberger told reporters following Sunday’s loss that he fully expects to play next week against the Giants
The injury to Mettenberger occurred in the third quarter of Sunday’s game forcing him off the field and the return of Jake Locker. Mettenberger seems far from certain to play next week but the Titans need to know if they have anything in him or if they will be seeking another quarterback in the Draft in 2015.
On the season Mettenberger has completed 58.8 percent of his passes for 1,103 yards while tossing seven touchdowns and five interceptions. The rookie was a sixth round pick this year.
