NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The Tennessee Titans have waived offensive tackle David Stewart after he failed a physical.

Stewart, a fourth-round draft pick out of Mississippi State in 2005, had started 116 games for the Titans since 2006.

He broke his right leg Dec. 2, 2012, in a game with the Houston Texans. Even though he played 12 games last season, he rarely practiced while struggling with injuries. Stewart said late last season he expected he would need surgery during the offseason.

In a team statement Wednesday announcing the move, Titans general manager Ruston Webster said, "He played the game with passion and brought a toughness that every team needs. Dave was a player we have always been able to count on, and in our mind he will always be a Titan."
