Titans linebacker Kevin Dodd is still experiencing pain nearly a year and a half after he had an initial surgery to put a screw in this right foot to repair a stress fracture. Four months ago, he had a second surgery to work on the foot again.

Dodd is not on the football field with his Titans teammates as the rehab is not even testing the foot yet with his ability to shift, cut, or accelerate.

"I’m not really doing anything to stress it [foot] right now," Dodd said via ESPN.com. "I really can’t tell you that much. But I feel fine walking around."

Dodd knows that he has to be patient with the foot issue so it will heal properly.

“I’m not out to prove anything to anybody," Dodd said. But I do ask everybody to be patient. When I do get out there, I’m going to play to the best of my ability.”

If Dodd's foot injury doesn't progress in the next few months, he could possibly land on the team's physically unable to perform list.

Dodd had a sack and five tackles in nine games before being placed on the injured reserve after being a second-round draft pick by the Titans last season. In 2015, Dodd was a breakout star at Clemson with 62 tackles, 12 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss (second in the nation behind Clemson's Shaq Lawson).
