Tennessee Titans QB Potentially Out for the Season

The Tennessee Titans 2022 season appears to be quickly unravelling. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill underwent surgery for a high-ankle sprain this week, will not play again this season, and will likely miss the postseason as well. Tannehill has battled an ankle injury for much of this season, missing two games earlier in the year. He aggravated the ankle in the first half of the Titans' Week 15 17-14 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers but returned after a single missed drive and finished the game. Tannehill has passed for 2536 yards with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions in his 12 starts this season.

Tannehill's unavailability will thrust rookie Malik Willis back into the spotlight and could put the Titans' postseason bid at risk. Willis has netted a minuscule 97 passing yards with one interception in his two starts this season. At 7-7, the Titans risk losing the AFC South if Willis struggles over the next three games. The Titans face the 7-8 Jacksonville Jaguars in the season finale, who would hold all tie-breakers with a second win. The Jaguars already hammered the Titans 36-22 in Week 14.
