The Titans have suffered a significant blow to their defense before the start of the regular season.
Outside linebacker Harold Landry tore his ACL during Wednesday’s practice, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
A second-round pick in 2018, Landry has become one of Tennessee’s key defensive players over the last few years. He was selected to his first Pro Bowl last season after recording a career-high 12.0 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, and 22 quarterback hits.
With his rookie contract coming to an end after the 2021 season, the Titans signed Landry to a five-year, $87.5 million extension with $52.5 million guaranteed in March.
Landry has started every game for the Titans since 2019. He’s registered 31.0 sacks, 41 tackles for loss, and 66 quarterback hits in his career.
