Titans DE Kevin Dodd has surgery, out until after camp

The Tennessee Titans had a pretty good draft class this year and one of their biggest players is second-round defensive end Kevin Dodd. However, he will be out until midway through the summer after having surgery on his foot.

Head coach Mike Mularkey reported that Dodd had “preventative” surgery on Thursday after suffering a stress fracture. They expect to have the player back for training camp.

NFL Media senior analyst Ian Rapoport reported that Dodd had to have a screw inserted in his fifth metatarsal.

Kevin Dodd was the 33rd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and was the first of three players drafted by the Titans in the second round. The irony behind this is that Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson, Dodd’s Clemson teammate, had shoulder surgery and will be out until at least mid-November.
