Logan Ryan took it upon himself to break the news.
“I believe the player should break his own news about his body,” the Titans cornerback tweeted on Monday above an attached message in which he stated he’ll miss the remainder of the season with a broken left fibula.
Ryan suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of the Titans’ 17-0 win over the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. He stayed down after a play while receiving medical attention before hobbling to the sideline on his own power.
“I poured my heart and soul into this season so it’s unfortunate,” Ryan wrote. “However, anyone who knows me knows how relentlessly I will train to come back a better player with fewer weaknesses. I am proud of how I played, I’m proud of how my team is playing, and I’m proud I was able to walk off the field with a broken leg. I will continue to support the team and coach up the DB’s while we make this run for the playoffs. Also I am proud to say my 76 tackles this season raised over $12,000 dollars for animal rescue. It’s all love.”

The loss is a crushing blow to the Titans’ secondary. Ryan had 76 tackles, four sacks and eight pass deflections this season. Tennessee’s depth at corner includes LeShaun Sims and Joshua Kalu behind starters Malcolm Butler and Adoree’ Jackson.
Ryan is the third member of the team to suffer a season-ending injury in the past two weeks. Tight end Jonnu Smith (knee) and right tackle Jack Conklin (knee) were both placed on injured reserve after suffering injuries in their Week 14 game against the Jaguars.
The Titans (8-6) are still in playoff contention and have games left this season against the Washington Redskins and Indianapolis Colts.
