The Tennessee Titans finally have some reason for optimism heading in to an NFL season, for once.
Going in to the 2015 campaign, the Titans have got Heisman winning quarterback Marcus Mariota under center, while they also went out and drafted exciting running back David Cobb and the physical specimen that is wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham.
However, it isn't all good news for the Titans, as it has been revealed that one starter on the defensive side of the ball will miss the start of the season.

Titans starting nose tackle Sammie Hill had surgery to repair an injured MCL in his knee on Wednesday.
According to a report from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Hill is expected to miss the first three games of the season for the Titans but will be able to play after the team’s bye in Week 4.
The Titans were still debating a course of action for Hill on Tuesday for the injury suffered last week, either in practice or early in their pre-season game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hill suffered a knee injury during OTAs in May that kept him on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the start of training camp. He passed a physical and last week’s game against the Chiefs was his first game action of the preseason.
Hill appeared in 15 games for the Titans last season and recorded 34 tackles and three sacks. Hill was taken in the 4th round of the 2009 Draft by the Detroit Lions, out of Stillman College. Hill signed a three-year, $11.4 million contract with the Titans in 2013.
