Titans’ Logan Ryan to miss remainder of season with broken fibula

Logan Ryan took it upon himself to break the news. "I believe the player should break his own news about his body," the Titans cornerback posted on Twitter on Monday morning above an attached message in which he stated he'll miss the remainder of the season with a broken left fibula.

Ryan suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of the Titans' 17-0 win over the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. He stayed down after a play while receiving medical attention before hobbling to the sideline under his own power.

"I poured my heart and soul into this season so it's unfortunate," Ryan wrote. "However, anyone who knows me knows how relentlessly I will train to come back a better player with fewer weaknesses. I am proud of how I played, I'm proud of how my team is playing, and I'm proud I was able to walk off the field with a broken leg. I will continue to support the team and coach up the DB's while we make this run for the playoffs. Also I am proud to say my 76 tackles this season raised over $12,000 dollars for animal rescue. It's all love."

The loss is a crushing blow to the Titans' secondary with Ryan in the midst of a terrific season that included 76 tackles, four sacks and eight pass deflections. Tennessee's depth at corner includes LeShaun Sims and Joshua Kalu behind starters Malcolm Butler and Adoree' Jackson.

On a conference call at noon Monday, Titans coach Mike Vrabel said the team had not made any roster moves in relation to Ryan's injury.

"We’ll handle those things in the next couple of days," Vrabel said. "Whoever plays in there is going to be expected to do a good job. Simsy went in there (Sunday) for him and did a good job."

Last week, Titans first-year secondary coach Kerry Coombs was asked about Ryan and his value to the unit.

"He's gifted intellectually. He understands the game. He understands exactly what he's trying to do. He has a plan on every play," Coombs said. "He studies the opponent. He understands what we're trying to get accomplished. He asks a ton of questions. He has thoughts. There's a lot of good give and take. He's a pro's pro. He shows up every day ready to work. He is looking for opportunity to gain an edge on every play, and I really appreciate that about Logan."

Ryan is the third member of the team to suffer a season-ending injury in the past two weeks. Tight end Jonnu Smith (knee) and right tackle Jack Conklin (knee) were placed on injured reserve after suffering injuries in the Week 14 game against the Jaguars.
