As you can see from the Jim Wyatt tweet, Andy Levitre will miss the first two weeks of camp after having his appendix removed today.  On one hand, this isn't the worst timing because he should be back in plenty of time for week 1, but at the same time, offensive lineman need training camp as much, if not more, than anyone else.  It is a good chance for them to get in shape, and it is also important for them to gel with a new right tackle- whether it be Michael Oher or Taylor Lewan.

Levitre is not the first Titans offensive lineman to have an issue with his appendectomy.  In 2012 Michael Roos had to have his appendix removed during the season.
