Tennessee tight end Jared Cook has a torn right rotator cuff and coach Mike Munchak says Cook will be placed on injured reserve for the final three games.
Cook caught an 18-yard touchdown pass on the opening drive in Sunday's 27-23 loss to Indianapolis. But he hurt his shoulder catching a screen pass late in the third quarter.
The tight end ranks second with 44 catches and has 523 yards receiving. He will become the 15th player on injured reserve, and Munchak called it unfortunate.
Cook says the season-ending injury is a tough blow. He was honored Monday as the Titans' community man of the year for raising money for breast cancer research and exams in honor of his mother, Yulinda, a breast cancer survivor.

John Glennon reports that the Tennessee Titans place TE Jared Cook on season-ending injured reserve after he suffered a torn rotator cuff during Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
It’s believed that Cook will require surgery, which is really unfortunate for him given that he’s currently in a contract year. We dropped him out of our Top 50 Free Agents list due to...
Tennessee running back Chris Johnson has reached another career milestone in an otherwise bleak losing season for the Titans.
Johnson has become just the eighth player in NFL history to run for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first five seasons, topping the plateau in Sunday's loss to Indianapolis.
Johnson said Tuesday it's real special to be among elite company, joining...
Titans quarterback Jake Locker had 262 yards on 22-of-35 passing with one touchdown and two picks Sunday at Indianapolis.Fantasy Spin:Locker has been a turnover machine in the last three games, handing the ball over nine times in that stretch. Play at your own risk against the Jets in Week 15.
Titans running back Chris Johnson crossed 1,000 yards for the fifth time in five years Sunday against the Colts but only had 44 yards on 19 carries.Fantasy Spin:Johnson owners won't like the fact that QB Jake Locker was the leading rusher in Week 14. After seven dynamite weeks, Johnson has clocked in below 4.0 ypc in three straight games. He's failed to score a touchdown...
Titans receiver Kenny Britt finally broke out with 143 yards on eight catches Sunday against the Colts.Fantasy Spin:Britt failed to record more than 67 receiving yards in any game this season prior to Sunday. He'll likely draw Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie in coverage next week.
That’s a much more difficult target for a kicker to hit, given the extra distance and the smaller margin between the uprights. Oh, and it might be somewhat more obscene, too.

It's another sad day in a season which hasn't had many high points. The Titans took a 20-7 halftime lead into the locker room at Lucas Oil Stadium. When they exited, they left their game in the locker room and couldn't make their lead stand up. Jake Locker threw a pair of costly interceptions in the second half which gave the Colts ten easy points. Andrew Luck...
Here are the injury reports for the Titans and Colts. I'll post the inactives when those lists become available later this morning. Feel free to comment here with your thoughts throughout the morning and the game. I'll have a game recap posted this afternoon.
