Titans put WR Hunter, CB McCourty on IR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans are placing wide receiver Justin Hunter and cornerback Jason McCourty on injured reserve
Hunter underwent surgery on Monday for a fractured right ankle sustained in Sunday’s 27-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers. This marks the second straight year the 2013 second-round pick has suffered a season-ending injury. He had a lacerated spleen in 2014.
Hunter finished the season with 22 catches for 264 yards and one touchdown.
McCourty is undergoing a second surgical procedure to correct a groin injury that first occurred on Aug. 6 and cost him all of the preseason and the first three games of the regular season. He had surgery on Aug. 24, but the injury flared up again. McCourty has missed the past two games for the Titans.
