Titans' Taylor Lewan: Moves to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 29-year-old confirmed earlier in the day that he suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Texans, so the move to injured reserve was only a matter of time. Lewan could be ready for the start of the 2021 campaign if all goes well in his recovery. Corey Davis was activated off the COVID-19 list in a corresponding move.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Discloses season-ending injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (knee) confirmed via his official Twitter account Monday that he suffered a torn ACL.

Lewan had an MRI on Monday after having been forced off the field during Sunday's win over the Texans, the results of which confirm that he's sustained a season-ending injury and will need to undergo surgery. The Titans will be forced to operate without the Pro Bowl left tackle for the remainder of the 2020 campaign, with Ty Sambrailo likely slotting into the starting lineup the rest of the way.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Torn ACL feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday to diagnose what the Titans fear may be an ACL tear, Steve Layman of News Channel 5 reports.

Lewan was forced out of Sunday's 42-36 win over the Texans due to what is now feared to be a severe knee injury. If the results of the Pro Bowl left tackle's MRI indeed confirm an ACL tear, or another season-ending injury, the Titans would likely count on Ty Sambrailo to slot into the starting lineup.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Texans, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Coming off a short week because of Tuesday night's matchup against Buffalo, the probability for injury may have been slightly elevated for Titans players -- especially for those dealing with existing issues heading into Week 6. Lewan was forced to miss multiple series during Week 5 because of a shoulder injury, ultimately fielding 67 percent of the offensive snaps against the Bills. That came on the heels of a Week 3 outing in which Lewan was carted off against the Vikings after playing just 18 snaps.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (shoulder) returned to Tuesday's game against the Bills, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Lewan missed a couple of series to end the first half but returned to the game following halftime and resumed his typical left tackle position.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Leaves with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan exited Tuesday's game against the Bills with a right shoulder injury, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

The 29-year-old was considered questionable for Tuesday's contest due to a left shoulder issue, but he sustained an injury to the opposite shoulder during the first half. Ty Sambrailo lines up to work at left tackle while Lewan is sidelined.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Active Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (shoulder) is officially active for Tuesday's game against the Bills, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

It was reported earlier in the day that the 29-year-old would be good to go Tuesday, so it's hardly a surprise to see him suiting up versus Buffalo. Lewan was carted to the locker room Week 3 with the shoulder issue, but he won't end up missing game action with the Titans not playing last week due to the team's COVID-19 outbreak.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Will play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (shoulder) will play Tuesday against the Bills, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

After being deemed questionable for Tuesday's matchup due to a shoulder injury, the left tackle will play. Lewan practiced fully Thursday and Friday, and had a limited session Saturday, so this shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but it's nice to see the confirmation earlier in the day. Ty Sambrailo will slide back to swing tackle.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (shoulder) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bills, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Lewan practiced fully Thursday and Friday before logging a limited session Saturday. He still has a good chance to suit up Tuesday considering he stayed on the field all week, but if he can't play, expect Ty Sambrailo to start at left tackle.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Listed as full participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (shoulder) was listed as a full participant on Wednesday's practice estimate, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Lewan was carted off in the Week 3 matchup against the Vikings, but he appears to have shaken off the injury. He'll resume starting left tackle duties when the Titans return to game action.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Carted off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

Lewan was blindsided by his own player on a run in the second quarter, and needed to be carted to the locker room. As long as Lewan is sidelined, look for Ty Sambrailo to take over at left tackle.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Retakes field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan has returned to Monday's game versus the Broncos, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Lewan gave Titans fans a scare when he went down holding his right knee, but it appears he has avoided major damage and will retake his spot anchoring the left edge of the line.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Expected to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan left Monday's game against the Broncos with a knee injury but is expected to retake the field, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Lewan went to the medical tent and was spotted testing out the knee on a stationary bike. Fortunately, the longtime starter at left tackle should retake his spot after temporarily ceding it to Ty Sambrailo.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Back from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan was reinstated from his four-game suspension Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Lewan had been sidelined the first four games of the regular season after he was suspended for violating the league's PED policy. When his appeal fell short, the Titans were left with Dennis Kelly at left tackle and emerged with a modest 2-2 record. With Lewan back, he should retain his usual starting left tackle role.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Suspension made official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan has been officially suspended the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's PED policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Lewan's appeal did not succeed in reducing the length of his suspension. The star left tackle will officially remain sidelined the first month of the regular season, during which time one of Dennis Kelly or Tyler Marz will likely slot into the starting lineup. Lewan's absence will be a notable loss for the Titans' offense through the first four contests.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Appeal to be heard in one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan's appeal of his suspension for a violation of the NFL's PED policy is set to be heard next Thursday morning, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.

Lewan was slapped with a four-game ban near the end of July, but he'll attempt to reduce the suspension by going through the appeal process. His availability for the opening month of the 2019 season will likely come into focus in a week.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Departs practice early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (suspension) left Wednesday's practice early, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

It remains to be seen whether Lewan's early exit was due to an injury. The star left tackle is facing a four-game suspension after failing a recent drug test, and his appeal process has yet to fully play out. It would be bad news for Tennessee's offense if Lewan misses any time, whether to injury or suspension.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Not officially suspended yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The NFL is still waiting on results for the 'B' sample after Lewan failed a recent drug test, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lewan may be the first player in NFL history to announce his suspension before any ban is formally finalized by the league. He relayed via his personal Twitter account earlier Wednesday that he'll be out for the first four games of the regular season after he unknowingly took a banned supplement and failed a drug test during the offseason. Lewan passed a polygraph test indicating that he didn't mean to take anything illegal, but he also acknowledged that a lack of intent isn't likely to make a difference in terms of league punishment.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Suspended four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan was handed a four-game suspension Wednesday after failing a recent drug test, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Lewan broke the news on his personal Twitter account, relaying that he unknowingly took a banned supplement and subsequently passed a polygraph test. Regardless of his intent, the NFL's policy is that players are responsible for what they put into their bodies, so the Titans will have to play without their stud left tackle for the first four weeks of the regular season. The suspension is bad news for the entire Tennessee offense, particularly Marcus Mariota and Derrick Henry.

Titans' Taylor Lewan: Upgraded to full participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewan (shoulder) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com reports.

Lewan was limited in practice Wednesday before upgrading to full participation Thursday, foreshadowing his availability for Sunday's upcoming contest against the Giants. He's slated to start at left tackle once again, barring any setbacks this weekend.
