The Titans are making new plans for their starting center position after learning third-year starter Brian Schwenke fractured his tibia and dislocated his ankle, Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com reports (on Twitter).
Tennessee will turn to rookie Andy Gallik at the position for the foreseeable future, most likely for the remainder of the season.
The 24-year-old Schwenke, who has started all 25 games in which he’s been active for the Titans, was carted off the field during Tennessee’s loss to Miami. This marks the third straight season the former fourth-round pick’s season will be interrupted by a serious injury.
The Cal alum missed seven games with an ankle malady as a rookie before missing the Titans’ final five contests last season due to a torn MCL.
Also 24, Gallik’s played in three games thus far this season.
