The Tennessee Titans coach said Thursday that the former No. 1 overall pick will undergo an arthroscope procedure in hopes of returning in time for the season opener against the Detroit Lions.
Bortzler said in a press conference that Bortes is undergoing an MRI.
“He’s going to have a procedure tomorrow to get a better feel for how it will work,” Bretzier said.
“We’ll get the MRI tomorrow.
We’ll do it at 3:30 or 4:30.
We’re still not quite there yet, but we are getting close.”
Bortlezler said that Breslin and Dr. Thomas C. Cipriani, the head surgeon at the University of Tennessee Medical Center, will provide updates.
The Titans are 1-5 heading into the opener against Detroit and are coming off a 31-17 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.
Breslings name has come up as a possible trade chip after he was benched for the final five games of the 2016 season, when the team finished 2-14.
Bredesen also was benied for the start of the season and finished with a season-low six starts.
The veteran left tackle had been one of the Titans’ most reliable offensive linemen.
The 28-year-old has appeared in eight games this season and has a combined 4.2 sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss.
Bexar County commissioner Kevin Allen, a former coach of the New Orleans Saints, said that the Jaguars would like to bring back Breslow.
“I think he’s going have a great opportunity to be the starter,” Allen said on “The Dan Patrick Show.”
“He can play a lot of snaps.
We know he’s a good player, he has a lot to offer.
It would be great to get him back.”
