Despite playing a limited role in the first half, McCarthy still has 47 tackles on the season.
McCarthy has 17 of his 28 tackles over the last two games.
Fokou left Week 6 against the Seahawks with a knee injury. McCarthy was the team's starting middle linebacker last season but was limited to only seven games last season because of an ankle injury. He has 11 total tackles through six games this season.
"If Moise (Fokou) plays like we think he can, you hope not. You don’t have a crystal ball. I mean, can it happen? Sure. Anything’s possible," Munchak said of replacing Fokou with McCarthy, per The Tennessean. "You want them both to play well and see what happens. For now, Moise’s played well. He took advantage of the situation he was given, and now we just have to see how we play as a unit."
