The Tennessee Titans have made a truly awful start to the 2015 NFL season.

Whilst they weren't exactly expected to perform miracles after finishing 2014 with the second-worst record in the League, the Titans were expected to at least take a step in the right direction. That didn't happen yesterday, as Tennessee lost 38-10 to the Miami Dolphins at the Nissan Stadium.

Out for the Season

Things got a lot worse, however, as center Brian Schwenke suffered a severe leg injury during the game, as we reported here. It has now been confirmed that Schwenke will miss the rest of the season.

Schwenke will be placed on injured reserve after being diagnosed with a dislocated ankle and thus won't return until 2016, according to a report from ProFootballTalk.

The starting center had his leg rolled up on during the second quarter against the Dolphins and his leg just turned into rubber.

It may not seem like it, but Schwenke has gotten off lightly with just a dislocated ankle. On first appearances, it seemed like he had suffered multiple breaks along his leg.

“That guy is awesome,” left tackle Taylor Lewan said, via the team’s website. “He is a great friend of mine on the team; I love that guy. I saw what happened, I saw the injury, and that is nothing you want to see and that messes you up mentally when you are out there."

"That hurt. My heart goes out to him and his wife, his family. I just hope for a speedy recovery. But that’s this game. That could have happened to me today.”

Rookie Andy Gallik replaced Schwenke after the injury and will likely be the starter as Tennessee face the Atlanta Falcons in week seven.
