Ryan recorded 113 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and four interceptions across 16 games for the Titans in 2019. Ryan took a big step forward in his third season with Tennessee, leading the team in tackles and posting his highest interception total since the 2016 campaign. He primarily played in the slot, limiting top receivers such as Jarvis Landry, Keenan Allen and D.J. Moore throughout the season. As a result of his resurgent performance, Ryan could be in for a big payday as he is set to hit free agency for the second time of his career.
Ryan (illness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. Ryan did not practice Wednesday due to an illness, but he now appears back to full health. Barring any setbacks, the veteran cornerback can be considered on track for the AFC Championship Game in Kansas City.
Ryan didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to an illness, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Ryan has been instrumental to the team's unexpected postseason run, with his biggest highlight coming in the wild-card win over the Patriots, when he sealed the victory with a pick-six on former teammate Tom Brady's final pass of the game. It would be a major loss for the Titans if Ryan can't kick the illness by Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Chiefs.
Ryan notched 13 tackles (nine solo) and a defended pass during Saturday's playoff win over the Ravens. Ryan's outstanding performance as a run stopper was pivotal in containing Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson, a development that paved the way for Tennessee's AFC divisional-round victory. The veteran cornerback also recorded a pick-six during last week's wild-card win over the Patriots, and he'll look to keep up the momentum in next Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus either the Texans or Chiefs.
Ryan recorded seven solo tackles and one defended pass during Sunday's 38-28 loss to the Saints. Ryan leads the cornerback position with 109 tackles across 15 contests, having already well surpassed his previous career-high mark of 76 stops. He'll look to keep his momentum going during Week 17's must-win tilt against the Texans.
