The Tennessee Titans have an incredibly interesting season coming up in 2015.

The Titans have a brand new quarterback under center in former Heisman winner Marcus Mariota, who all of the focus will be on. Mariota excelled in Oregon's spread offense and could have a hard time adjusting to life in the NFL, especially with the tag of 2nd overall pick hanging over his head. 

The Titans really went all out on offense in the Draft, bringing in several offensive lineman and wide receiver alongside Mariota. The only defensive player Tennessee drafted was 6th round linebacker Deiontrez Mount. 

Therefore, the Titans could really do with keeping the rest of their defense relatively injury free, or as healthy as is possible in an NFL season. The Titans D was hardly great last year anyway, but with no reinforcements, Dick LeBeau has a hell of a job on his hands in his first year as Titans assistant head coach for defense.

Harris Crocked

And he has received his first bit of bad news, as cornerback Brandon Harris will likely miss the entirety of the 2015 season after tearing his ACL during OTA's, according to a report from John Glennon of The Tennessean.

"He's likely to undergo surgery, and rehab usually takes six to nine months, which would effectively put an end to Harris' 2015 season," Glennon wrote in his report.


Harris was claimed off waivers by Tennessee before last season and played in sub packages and on special teams for the Titans in 2014.

The Titans re-signed him to a one-year deal this offseason and he was going to be in the mix for snaps behind likely starters Jason McCourty and Perrish Cox, but the team will now look to Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Coty Sensabaugh and 2014 fourth-rounder Marqueston Huff to fill their depth needs. They will also likely enter the free agency pool to pick up another corner as a replacement for the 25-year old.

Harris was selected by the Houston Texans with their second round pick in the 2011 Draft out of Miami where Harris started 32 games for the Hurricanes before coming out as a Junior. He played 31 times for the Texans before being waived last August.
