Titans MLB Moise Fokou graded out among Pro Football Focus' 10 worst inside linebackers both in coverage and against the run in 2013.
Fokou finished the season as PFF's No. 53 of 55 qualifying inside linebackers despite missing four games. Middle linebacker has been a soft spot for the Titans since Stephen Tulloch's departure in 2011. Fokou is signed through 2014, but it's unclear how he'll fit into new defensive coordinator Ray Horton's plans. Feb 28 - 3:33 PM

The Titans expect MLB Moise Fokou (knee) to return next week.

Fokou has been out since Week 6 due to his knee injury, but returned to practice on a limited basis this week. He was playing on 97.6 percent of Tennessee's defensive snaps prior to going down and will immediately regain his starting job from Colin McCarthy when healthy.

Titans declared MLB Moise Fokou, WR Damian Williams, CB Tommie Campbell, LB Zaviar Gooden, C Brian Schwenke, OT Mike Otto and DE LaVar Edwards inactive for Week 11 against the Colts.

It's Fokou's fourth straight inactive. Colin McCarthy will continue to fill in at middle linebacker. Starting in place of Jake Locker (Lisfranc, injured reserve), Ryan Fitzpatrick is a viable, if low-end, QB2 for Week 11.

Titans MLB Moise Fokou (knee) is expected to miss his second straight game Sunday.

Thu, Oct 31, 2013 05:28:00 PM

Titans MLB Moise Fokou (knee) did not practice Monday.

The bye week wasn't quite enough for Fokou to get right. "I feel good but it's still sort of day-to-day, week-to-week," he said. "I could be back out there this weekend or be back next week - it's just up to the trainers and the coaching staff." Backup Colin McCarthy filled in with eight tackles and one tackle for a loss when he started against the 49ers in Week 7.
Tue, Oct 29, 2013 08:29:00 AM

Titans coach Mike Munchak confirmed Tuesday that MLB Moise Fokou (knee) will be out for Week 7.

Speaking on his weekly radio show, Munchak said Colin McCarthy will start at middle linebacker against the 49ers. Fokou's injury is supposedly "nothing major," but the fact that he's been ruled out so early suggests he'll be dicey for Week 8.
Tue, Oct 15, 2013 07:19:00 PM

A Monday MRI confirmed Titans MLB Moise Fokou's sprained knee is "nothing major."

According to coach Jim Schwartz, Fokou is likely week to week. That, of course, all but rules him out for Sunday's tilt with Frank Gore and the 49ers. Perhaps Fokou will be ready after Tennessee's Week 8 bye. Colin McCarthy will start in the interim.
Mon, Oct 14, 2013 03:09:00 PM

The Titans are reportedly optimistic that MLB Moise Fokou's knee injury is not overly serious.

Fokou and the Titans are hoping a Monday MRI reveals a mildly sprained knee. Through six games, the every-down Mike 'backer has racked up 40 tackles and forced two fumbles in the loss at Seattle Sunday. Colin McCarthy is Fokou's backup.
Mon, Oct 14, 2013 08:14:00 AM

Titans MLB Moise Fokou was forced from Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a sprained knee, and will not return.

Fokou first went down in the first half, but tweaked the injury in the fourth quarter. He was immediately ruled out, suggesting a potentially serious injury.
Sun, Oct 13, 2013 06:34:00 PM

The Titans have no plans to remove Moise Fokou as their every-down linebacker.

Fokou has played on 97.6 percent of Tennessee's defensive snaps despite not being their best linebacker against the pass and is expected to continue to be used in dime packages over Zach Brown. "We have found no reason to take Moise off the field," position coach Chet Parlavecchio said. "It's been always a traditional thing, the 'Mike' linebacker runs the show. We have a situation here where our Mike is very comfortable. It's not just about him, it's about the way he communicates adjustments, the way he recognizes formation."
