Malcolm Butler suffers broken wrist against Panthers
Malcolm Butler left Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers after suffering a wrist injury, and it sounds like the star cornerback could end up missing some significant time.
Butler suffered a broken wrist and will undergo testing to determine the severity, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.
#Titans CB Malcolm Butler, who was quickly ruled out of today’s game, suffered a broken wrist, source said. He’s going to get further testing to determine how severe the injury is. But a rough loss.

Defensive players can often play with a cast or brace on their hand, but it remains to be seen if Butler will be able to do that.
Butler signed a five-year, $61 million deal with Tennessee prior to last season. The former New England Patriots Super Bowl hero has not missed a game since his rookie season. He has two interceptions this year after having three in his first season with the Titans.
