College Teammates Derrick Morgan And Morgan Burnett Sustain Matching Season-Ending Injuries Minutes Apart

Yesterday from about 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. was unquestionably the worst hour ever to be a first-year defensive player from Georgia Tech named Morgan. Titans first-round end Derrick Morgan has a torn left ACL and is done for the year, matching Packers safety Morgan BurnettIR'd earlier today. Both left their 1 o'clock games before halftime, and both were felled with the same injury on the same knee.

What's the appropriate remark to make here? Something about the Ramblin' Wreck's left wheels, I guess? Maybe something about Tech's unorthodox offense, but these guys play defense, so.

Demaryius Thomas had an offseason filled with left leg injuries, as a matter of fact. Of this year's Jackets crop only Jonathan Dwyer, who showed up overweight at the NFL Combine and pretty much everything before and after the NFL Combine as well, has remained standing since draft day.

Just a sad coincidence. Visit Acme Packing Company and Music City Miracles for more.
