RB Ringer Wearing Device To Treat Infected Elbow

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee Titans running back Javon Ringer is wearing a device designed to draw infection from his left elbow and will keep it on until Monday to make sure he fully heals.

Ringer was hospitalized on Sept. 8 after the arm swelled. He doesn't know how the infection started, though doctors said a scratch likely became infected. The backup running back got out of the hospital Wednesday and discussed his medical scare on Friday.

He says he was OK until he heard he could have lost his arm, which immediately let him know how serious a little scratch had become.

Quarterback Jake Locker is questionable for Sunday's game at San Diego (1-0) and has practiced three straight days since hurting his left shoulder.
