NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans will not face sanctions from the NFL after their mascot's golf cart struck New Orleans quarterback Adrian McPherson and injured his knee during Saturday's preseason game.
The league investigated the accident and reminded all teams that mascots must stay outside of a 6-foot boundary around their fields, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the Tennessean.
"No, the club is not going to be disciplined," Aiello said.
The mascot T-Rac is played by Pete Nelson, the director of mascot operations. He will not face any penalties.
T-Rac was riding on a golf cart throwing items into the stands during halftime Saturday and was heading off the field when the Saints were returning from their locker room for the third quarter.
The cart hit McPherson, who suffered a deep bruise on his right kneecap.
McPherson told the Times-Picayune that he could be out of action for up to two weeks. He has only worked out on stationary bike since the team returned to training camp in Jackson, Miss.
