Albert Haynesworth Tweaks His Knee Against Texans
But what happened late in the game could end up being costly. Albert Haynesworth was carted off the field with a left knee injury after his leg got twisted in a pile. According to CBS' halftime show, the injury appears to a strained MCL.
If that's the case, it would be a dose of semi-good news. If it had been an ACL, Haynesworth would be done for the season, but MCL strains usually take three to four weeks to heal.
If Haynesworth is healthy in three weeks, he'd miss the final two games of the regular season and the Titans' bye week of the playoffs, which is not that big of a deal. But four weeks would stretch into the second round of the playoffs, which would obviously be a horrendous blow to the Titans' Super Bowl hopes.
Of course, Haynesworth also was laid out on the field against the Jets with a knee injury, and he bounced back from that very quickly, so until we get the MRI results, it's a nervous waiting game for the Titans.
