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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Lewan (shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Lewan was evaluated for a shoulder injury in Thursday's win over the Jaguars, but was able to return to the field.

Lewan (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Lewan is on track to suit up against the Jets on Sunday, barring any setbacks. The star left tackle picked up an ankle injury during a Week 12 loss to the Texans, but he appears to have fully recovered from the issue.
Lewan (ankle) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Lewan has battled injuries all season, and this ankle ailment is the latest addition. Wednesday's practice was only a walkthrough, so when the Titans return to the practice field on Thursday, there should be a better indication of Lewan's health heading into a week 13 matchup against the Jets.
Lewan (foot) returned to full activity in practice Thursday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Lewan missed practice Wednesday after exiting the Titans' Week 5 loss to the Bills prematurely due to a foot injury, but he returned as a full participant Thursday. The starting left tackle should be available for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens, barring any setbacks.

Lewan (foot) did not return to the field for the Titans' practice Wednesday after exiting the team's Week 5 contest early. If he is unable to take the field in at least a limited capacity Thursday, his outlook for Week 6 would not be optimistic. Lewan missed Week 2 due to a concussion, and his absence would leave the Titans' offensive line short-handed once again.

Lewan said that his right foot is not brokenbut he did hear a, "little snap/pop." The former first-round pick has been battling lingering foot injuries throughout the regular season, and more information about his injury should be disclosed after he receives an MRI on Monday.
Lewan is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bills with a foot injury, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.
All of the sudden, Lewan's injury becomes a major concern for the Titans because hey're already without key reserves along the offensive line. If Lewan can't return, Tyler Marz or Corey Levin could be asked to step up.
Lewan (concussion) was a full practice participant Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Lewan remains in the concussion protocol but is nearing a return to practice, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

Lewan (concussion) is reportedly "progressing well" as he aims to retake the practice field, Travis Haney of The Athletic reports.
The nature of head injuries is rather foggy and largely categorized by individualized timelines. It's tough to predict when Lewan will be ready to make a return, but the positive news stemming from Nashville suggests he may be close. Lewan's practice availability throughout the week should provide a good indication of whether he'll be ready for Week 3 action.
Lewan (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Lewan sustained the concussion in Week 1 against the Dolphins and has yet to clear the concussion protocol. Starting right tackle Jack Conklin (knee) remains sidelined as well, likely leaving Dennis Kelly and Kevin Pamphile to fill in at offensive tackle.
