I am still appalled at the deceit in the original story. News 5 tried to be deceitful and pose the interview with Fisher as recent banter. That was intentional, News 5 tried to sneak it by but Fisher, among others, called its bluff. Someone should be held accountable here. Because honestly, that is just lazy journalism .. who, what when where and why is what they taught me in school. It would be common sense to say, “Coach Fisher had this to say in August .. or July.” Awful.

All you idiots need to get the facts before making your stupid comments. The man had a bruised knee the whole time and that's all he was told it was. None of you play football at a pro level so you have no clue what it would be like to play with that kind of pressure and impact. Just to make a cut on the field with that kind of power in your legs. He never knew what a knew injury should feel like he just felt a bruise. The titans know there was a (hairline) fracture in his leg and that gave way when he cut and took hits. They owe him what he deserves. And I'm so sorry this happened to you DG. Nashville sucks! Be happy you don't live here anymore.

Mike Cutler would haven ever let something like this happen. Unfortunately this will be hard to recover from. Hopefully the reporter has been dismissed. If not him, the program manager.

Sorry Jeff. I did not mean to mislead everyone. I was only going to get 5% anyways.

Way to go Nick and Channel 5. How deceitful can you be. Channel 5 use to be my #1 news outlet, but not anymore. Fisher has every right to be angry.

This is funny, everyone goes from being mad at the Titans' dr, to being made at the player, to being mad at Nick to being mad at Channel 5. Come on for crying out loud. Who here is perfect? How here has not made a mistake. Oh my goodness. If we can't be mad and blame someone lets just be mad at everyone!!!
David had an injury to his knee, the dr's made a mistake and did not say anything, but at the same time did David go back and Ask the dr??? We don't know. Nick made a mistake by not paying attention to details. OOPS, I have had times were I have not paid close attention, even when it mattered. News Channel 5, Well they aired it when maybe they should not. Looks like there was plenty of mistakes, but heck, they are human.

Givens should have known from playing in college what kinda shape his knees were in. The doctors should have done what is best for the player long term. This is why it will go to court and be settled there. However, using comments from an interview that was done way before the lawsiut was filed and making it appear that it is related to this current story is crappy journalism and unprofessional.
