Malcolm Butler Was Sick Before Super Bowl LII, Never Got Reason for Benching
Newly signed Tennessee Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler said he was sick during the week leading up to Super Bowl LII but never got a reason for the benching that played some part in his departure from the New England Patriots.
“I never got a reason,” Butler told Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. “I feel like this is the reason. I got kind of sick. I went to the hospital. They probably thought I was kind of late on the game plan; I wasn’t as locked in as I should be and could have been a matchup deal. It could have been anything.”
Butler, who started 47 of his last 48 regular-season games with the Patriots and was a starter for their first two playoff contests before the Super Bowl, did not receive a defensive snap against the Philadelphia Eagles.
