Caleb Farley was injured during the Tennessee Titans Monday night match against the Buffalo Bills. The initial fear that the former Virginia Tech Hokies defensive back had torn his ACL was confirmed on Tuesday. Farley is expected to miss the remainder of his rookie NFL season.
MRI confirmed an isolated ACL tear with minimal lateral meniscus damage for Caleb Farley, per source. His rookie season is now over. https://t.co/WhL6hFiuG1— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 19, 2021
Farley was one of two Virginia Tech Hokies to be selected during the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The Titans selected Farley with the 22nd pick of the draft while the Minnesota Viking selected Christian Darrisaw with the very next pick (23rd).
While at Virginia Tech, Caleb Farley played in 23 games through the 2018-2019 seasons. During that time he accumulated 56 tackles, 19 passes defended and six interceptions, one of which was a pick-six against the 2019 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Farley opted out of the 2020 college football season due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the Titans this year Farley saw action against the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans. He had four tackles and one pass defended before being injured. Suffice to say, it is upsetting to see another Hokie get injured at the professional level. We at Gobbler Country wish Mr. Farley a swift and successful recovery.
