Bostic suffered the injury in last Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and while the specifics remain relatively unknown, his 2017 season has come to an end. Anthony Walker and Jermaine Grace are set for increased workloads at inside linebacker over the final two weeks of the season.
Bostic injured his knee in Thursday's game against the Broncos.
Bostic's exact status is still unknown, but he is being evaluated and should have a more detailed diagnosis in the coming days. As long as he is out, Anthony Walker and Jermaine Grace are in line for extended snaps at linebacker.
Bostic made 11 tackles (five solo) against the Titans on Sunday.
Through 11 games, Bostic sits at 83 tackles, one away from his career high. The fifth-year linebacker played all 58 defensive snaps Sunday in his third double-digit tackle performance.
Bostic recorded nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.
It was the Bostic's highest tackle count since Week 4, as his season total reaches 72 (44 solo). The linebacker is averaging just under 68 defensive snaps per contest, so he'll likely welcome the bye to rest up a bit.
