Tennessee Titans middle linebacker Colin McCarthy missed three games this year with a high ankle sprain.

He tells that he doesn't plan on missing any more games, even though the injury won't heal as long as he keeps playing on it this season.

McCarthy said he has never had a high ankle sprain before in his career, and that he simply will have to rehab each week in order to try and play on Sundays.

“That's what I've been hearing. I've never had a high ankle (before), so I don't know what to expect,” McCarthy said. “It doesn't get healthy. It's something nagging for the rest of the season, I'm expecting. So I'll just have to deal with it.”
