Titans waived/released LB Moise Fokou, T Jeff Adams, CB Ri'Shard Anderson, DL Chigbo Anunoby, TE Chase Coffman, LB Brandon Copeland, QB Dominique Davis, DE Marcus Dixon, WR Marc Mariani, G Justin McCray, FB Collin Mooney, OL Eric Olsen, T Will Poehls, WR Rico Richardson, WR Brian Robiskie, TE Jason Schepler and CB Winston Wright.

Fokou started 12 games for the Titans a year ago, but was one of the worst inside linebackers in the NFL. It's a trouble area for the Titans. Fokou lost a backup spot to Patrick Bailey.
Aug 30 - 1:53 PM

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.

Titans MLB Moise Fokou (knee) has resumed practicing, and will be active for Week 12.

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

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.

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.
