He will need to have a pin put in it and probably will be out about six weeks.
He should be ready to go for training camp," Titans coach Mike Mularkey said after Wednesday's open practice.

Beyond that, Brady has never been anything but a stand-up guy, fierce competitor, clutch leader and everything else. Anyway, I must have been in denial for most of Sunday because I even had the "I wonder if we can talk Daunte Culpepper out of retirement" conversation with someone.
