The Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars released a final injury report on Wednesday ahead of Sunday’s Week 18 regular-season finale. The Jaguars will win the AFC South if they defeat the Titans. Starting quarterback Will Levis did not practice as he continues to deal with a foot injury.
Levis’ absence from Wednesday’s practice doesn’t qualify as surprising. It’s difficult to imagine Levis healing in time to receive the start on Sunday. Ryan Tannehill will likely make his final regular-season start for the Titans.
Defensive linemen TK McLendon Jr. did not practice with a shoulder designation. Wide receiver Colton Dowell did not practice. Dowell should shortly be placed on IR after suffering a season-ending torn ACL and meniscus last weekend.
In the secondary, cornerbacks Eric Garror (illness/knee) and Anthony Kendall (knee) did not practice. The Titans would miss Garror in the slot if he fails to suit up. Based on the shortage of numbers, Tay Gowan and Kendall Sheffield are candidates to be elevated from the practice squad.
Tennessee’s limited practice participants include Denico Autry (rest), Daniel Brunskill (ankle), Jaelyn Duncan (neck), DeAndre Hopkins (rest), and Sean Murphy-Bunting (hip), among others. Brunskill, Duncan, and Murphy-Bunting are the ones to watch here. Andew Rupcich would start if Brunskill isn’t cleared.
Starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence was a limited participant. Lawrence missed Jacksonville’s Week 17 victory with an injury while CJ Beathard started in his place. The Jags were likely resting Lawrence for their win-and-in finale scenario. It would be stunning if Lawrence didn’t play versus the Titans.
Wide receiver Christian Kirk was a limited participant. The Jaguars recently triggered Kirk’s 21-day window to return from IR earlier Wednesday morning. Kirk had been out of action since early December with a core muscle injury. The Jaguars are all-hands-on-deck for Week 18.
Wide receiver Zay Jones (knee/hamstring) was also a limited participant. Offensive linemen Ezra Cleveland (knee) and Walker Little (hamstring) were full participants.
