Draft Scout Colin McCarthy News
10/17/13 - --LB Colin McCarthy has patiently waited his turn, after a hamstring injury cost him the chance to retain his starting middle linebacker position. McCarthy, who proved injury prone last year and in camp this year was relegated to special teams as free-agent import Moise Fokou took the starting job in the middle.
Now with Fokou nursing a knee injury that could keep him out for a couple of weeks, McCarthy gets another shot.
"I got thrown into the action a little bit last week at the WILL and the MIKE. I struggled a little bit. I'll admit that," McCarthy said. "But I'm excited to get back out there with the guys."
McCarthy, a former Titans defensive captain as recently as last year, said he views this as an opportunity to re-establish himself as a starter.
"It's an opportunity for me and I want to make the most of it. I want to play within the defense and just do my job and make plays," he said.
09/26/13 - LB Colin McCarthy finally saw some action on defense and made a couple of plays Sunday. He played a couple of series while Moise Fokou was out with a burner.
09/02/13 - LB Colin McCarthy finally made his preseason debut against Minnesota, but won't start the opener.
08/26/13 - LB Colin McCarthy finally returned to practice from a hamstring injury and should play against Minnesota.
08/19/13 - LB Colin McCarthy is likely to miss another week with a hamstring injury that has probably caused him his starting job.
