NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said linebacker Colin McCarthy probably will be out for a while after hurting his shoulder Saturday in Tennessee's 20-16 preseason-opening victory over Green Bay.

McCarthy was hurt in the third quarter and went straight to the locker room. Whisenhunt didn't know if McCarthy would need surgery. The coach said after the game that he hadn't talked to the team trainer but spoke briefly with the linebacker.

Titans backup center Chris Spencer also hurt his left ankle early in the second quarter and was taken to the locker room on a cart.

Spencer had replaced starter Brian Scwhenke when he went down on a running play by Bishop Sankey. The veteran going into his 10th season didn't put his left leg down while being helped to the sideline. After a few minutes, left tackle Michael Roos and Schwenke helped Spencer to a cart, and he was taken to the locker room for further exam.

He did not return.

Packers linebacker Joe Thomas injured his knee and also did not return.
