NFL Rumors: Titans Left Tackle Could Be Done for the Year

The Tennessee Titans could be without one of their leaders on the offensive line for the rest of the year. Buck Reising of AtoZSports reports left tackle Taylor Lewan is undergoing further testing after initial evaluations suggested he had suffered a season-ending knee injury. Lewan suffered the injury on the Titans' very first offensive snap during what would be the team's only touchdown drive in a 41-7 defeat at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. Dennis Daley replaced him in the starting lineup, but if the final score is any indication, things could have gone a lot better for the Titans. Tennessee managed an embarrassing 3.53 yards per play and turned the ball over four times in the blowout.

Lewan has been a stalwart on the left side of the offensive line since the Titans drafted him 11th overall in 2014. He began his career with an impressive 68 starts in his first five seasons and notched three Pro Bowls, but injuries and a suspension have cost him 19 games since 2019. With the Titans already in an 0-2 hole, they'll need to quickly shore up their offense if they want to remain competitive in a stacked AFC. The team ranks 27th in yards gained and 28th in scoring through two weeks of the regular season.
