NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Titans safety Bernard Pollard has a ruptured right Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt made the announcement Monday, saying it’s unfortunate to lose a good leader and player.
Pollard, who turns 30 in December, led the Titans in tackles last season and earned himself a multi-year deal this offseason.
Ge was hurt on the winning extra point in a 29-28 loss to Cleveland Sunday. He wrote Monday on Twitter he will have surgery Tuesday morning and is headed to injured reserve for the first time in his career.
Whisenhunt says quarterback Jake Locker bruised his right thumb and has plenty of swelling but no structural damage. The coach says Locker is listed as day-to-day.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
