Titans placed LG Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve with a right knee injury, ending his season.
He's undergoing surgery on Thursday. Hutchinson, who had yet to miss a start this season, is the fourth Titans' starting offensive lineman to be sent to injured reserve. Only LT Michael Roos is still standing. However, this is the third straight December Hutchinson has landed on I.R. One month removed from his 35th birthday, Hutchinson is signed through 2014. Hutchinson graded out as just the league's 52nd best guard in Pro Football Focus' rankings, but it's still bad news for the Titans' run game since it further decimates their line depth.
