The Tennessee Titans' starting offensive line underwent several shakeups during the 2020 season, as first-round pick Isaiah Wilson had off-the-field issues and left tackle Taylor Lewan suffered a torn ACL in Week 5. Lewan has been on the shelf since, but he's working his way back to 100%.
The three-time Pro Bowler recently gave a fantastic update on his recovery progress to this point.
Taylor Lewan ACL
It turns out Lewan is feeling even better than his pre-injury self. It's clear that he's made the most of his time away from the field to get into great shape ahead of the 2021 campaign.
"I definitely feel like I am back to my normal self, if not a little bit better ... barring anything, there's going to be no issues. Week 1 is not going to be a problem.- Taylor Lewan
It's amazing to hear that the veteran left tackle is confident in where his body's at heading into his eighth pro season. And he quelled any fears about his Week 1 availability by saying he'll be ready to suit up barring anything major, which is another bit of positive news before the season kicks off.
Lewan has started 85 of his 90 career games with the Titans since entering the league in 2014. He's only started 17 games over the past two years, though, so getting him fully healthy will be a priority before he takes the field in 2021.
Lewan will hope to make his return in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals. Tennessee is a 3-point favorite in that matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
