Jay Glazer said on the FOX post-game show that Taylor Lewan might have torn his ACL in the win today over the Texans. My guess is that he has a pretty good source for that information or he would not have run with it. This is obviously a significant blow to the Titans.
The question now is what do the Titans do at tackle. Lewan has been injured in a few games this year. Ty Sambrailo has come in to play for him each time. Will they just move forward with Sambrailo at left tackle and Dennis Kelly at right tackle. How far away from being ready to play is Isaiah Wilson? Could they plug him in at right tackle and slide Kelly to left?
It will be disappointing if Wilson can’t get ready in the next couple of weeks after the Titans spent a first round pick on him. He should, in theory, be an upgrade over Sambrailo in the lineup.
With all of that being said, if Lewan does have a torn ACL, we wish him a speedy recovery. He has been a good player for this team and a good member of this organization for quiet a while now.
