However, team sources have told ESPN that Mettenberger has a Grade III sprain in his right shoulder and will miss the final three games of the season. The team is hoping to have Mettenberger avoid surgery and want to shut him down to give his shoulder time to heal.
Mettenberger was playing on Sunday with a sprained throwing shoulder, suffered in the previous week's lost to the Houston Texans. The shoulder was re-injured in the sack from Kennard, and Mettenberger left the game. He was replaced by Jake Locker.
Mettenberger wasn't having a very good day before the injury. He finished with 14 of 24 passes completed, 125 yards and one interception. He nearly had a second interception that was called back for a penalty.
