Titans' Sneed shrugs off injury concerns: 'Nothing wrong with my knee'

New Tennessee Titans cornerback L'Jarius Sneed's trade market wasn't as competitive as most expected, and some attributed that to long-term concerns about his knee.

But the former Kansas City Chiefs star shrugged off that idea during his introductory presser Tuesday.

"Ain't nothing wrong with my knee," Sneed said, according to Pro Football Talk's Josh Alper. "I'm fine. I played the whole season. Years before that I played as well.

"I had a couple (of) problems before, but I'm good right now. Nothing is really wrong with the knee. ... I know what to do with my knee. I'm coming out here to play ball."

Sneed suffered a knee injury during the Chiefs' postseason run in the 2022 campaign, though he didn't miss any game time.

The veteran sat out a significant portion of 2023's training camp with the injury but suited up for the entire regular season (except when the Chiefs rested their players in Week 18) and the playoffs.

While Sneed dismissed concerns, his knee injury "had a real effect" on his trade market and caused a deal with another team to fall through, reports Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star.

Tennessee had no such worries, signing Sneed to a reported four-year, $76.4-million deal that includes $55 million guaranteed after acquiring him from the Chiefs for a 2025 third-round pick and a swap of 2024 seventh-round picks.
