Tennessee Titans tackle Jack Conklin suffered a torn left ACL in a 35-14 loss in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs against the New England Patriots on Saturday.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey announced Conklin’s injury on Sunday, and said that the former Spartans standout will undergo surgery in two weeks. ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed the news on Twitter.

Conklin left the game Saturday and headed to the locker room after Patriots defensive lineman Malcom Brown hit him from behind. Brown rolled into Conklin, who fell to the ground and pointed to his left knee before he walked off the field on his own power.
Conklin appeared in all 16 regular season games for the Titans this season, and played in both of the team’s playoff games.
