A new tackle will have to step up and help protect quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan has been lost for the season.
Lewan announced on Twitter that he suffered a torn ACL. He suffered the injury in Sunday’s overtime 42-36 win over the Houston Texans at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.
“I wanted to let everyone know I got an MRI [on Monday,” Lewan said in a tweet. “I tore my ACL yesterday against Houston. Don’t feel sorry for me. I’m going to handle this rehab like a Pro and come back better than ever. Thank you Titans fans for your support.
“I can’t wait to watch my guys crush it. I’m going to be the biggest Titans fan each and every Sunday. We are doing something special here and this small setback doesn’t change a thing!”
According to Titansonline.com, Lewan’s backup is Ty Sambrailo. This is the 28-year-old’s first season with the Titans after previously playing for the Denver Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons.
Sambrailo signed a one-year deal with the Titans on March 25th.
He has appeared in 62 NFL games, including 13 starts. He has not started a game since the 2018 season when he made four starts for the Falcons.
Before Sunday’s game, Sambrailo has appeared in all five games. Only one game – in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars – did he not see an offensive snap.
Sambrailo made 30 offensive snaps on Sunday against the Houston Texans, according to Pro Football Reference. He made a season-high 56 offensive snaps in a 31-30 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 3 on Sept. 27th.
