Titans CB Caleb Farley (back) out for season

Tennessee Titans cornerback Caleb Farley underwent surgery involving his herniated disk and will miss the rest of the season, multiple outlets reported.

Farley, the team’s first-round pick in 2021, had a microdisectomy on Thursday, ESPN reported. That procedure is performed when a herniated disk in the spine puts pressure on a nerve root.

He is expected to take part in offseason workouts.

Farley, 24, appeared in nine games (one start) this season, recording 10 tackles. He sustained the injury in a Week 10 win over the Denver Broncos and was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 15.

Farley had two procedures performed on his back while in college at Virginia Tech, and his rookie season ended after three games due to a torn ACL.
