Titans LT Taylor Lewan Likely Out For Season With Knee Injury
Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan exited Monday's game against the Buffalo Bills with a right knee injury and there's reportedly fear that he suffered a season-ending knee injury.
By video, Lewan's knee appeared to buckle while pulling on a pass block. That signals a severe knee injury, likely a re-tear of the ACL in his right knee, according to the Pro Football Docs.
Lewan limped off the field and was carted from the sideline to the locker room. After the game, head coach Mike Vrabel did not provide an update on Lewan's status.
The Pro Football Docs hope the video lies, but Lewan not returning to the game does not bode well for his status in the near future.
The three-time Pro Bowler suffered his initial right knee ACL tear on Oct. 18, 2020. He returned for the start of the 2021 season, but was clearly not 100%.
If the 31-year-old left tackle is out for the season, it would be a big blow to the Titans. Dennis Daley replaced Lewan in Monday's game and will likely man the left tackle spot for the remainder of the season.
Lewan is under contract through 2023 before he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
