In Sunday’s contest against the Buffalo Bills, the Titans’ secondary became even thinner through injury. Tennessee Titans rookie cornerback Caleb Farley may have a torn ACL. Farley was carted off in the second quarter.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
Farley was the Titans’ first round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, taken with the 22nd pick. He was originally recruited as a wide receiver at Virginia Tech, but tore his ACL and missed the entire 2017 season. Farley was then converted to cornerback in 2018, eventually earning First Team All-ACC honors in 2019. He missed his last season at Virginia Tech when he opted out due to COVID-19.
In three games played, Farley had one pass defense and four tackles, all of which were solo efforts. If his ACL is torn, as is feared, he will miss the rest of the 2021 season. The main fear surrounding his draft stock was his previous injuries and unavailability. That fear reared its head in Week 6.
