Jared Cook injury: Titans TE tears rotator cuff, out for season

USA TODAY Sports

Tennessee Titans tight end Jared Cook was placed on injured reserve.

Tennessee Titans tight end Jared Cook was placed on injured reserve Monday, ending Cook's season.

Cook was diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff, following Tennessee's loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14. Cook suffered the injury in the third quarter, and was unable to return to the game.

Cook appeared in all 13 of Tennessee's games until the injury. Cook was targeted 72 times and caught 44 passes for 523 yards, and a career-high four touchdowns. The 13 games played will mark the fewest amount Cook has played in a given season, as the former South Carolina Gamecock's previous career low in games played was 14.

Taylor Thompson, listed second on Tennessee's depth chart, will likely move into a starting role for the Titans in Tennessee's final three games of the season. Thompson has just three receptions for 19 yards so far in 2012.

Tennessee will host the New York Jets next week on Monday Night Football, before ending the season with games at Green Bay and at home against Jacksonville.
