The final injury report of the 2023 Tennessee Titans season has arrived. The Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars released injury reports on Friday ahead of Sunday’s Week 18 regular-season finale. The Jaguars would win the AFC South for a second consecutive season with a victory. Despite momentarily returning to practice, head coach Mike Vrabel ruled Will Levis OUT. Ryan Tannehill will start for the Titans.

Sunday will represent Tannehill’s swan-song as a Titan. Tannehill’s contract is set to expire in March. Neither party is expected to pursue a reunion as the Titans move forward with Levis as their franchise quarterback.
Offensive linemen Jaelyn Duncan (neck) and Daniel Brunskill (ankle) are listed as questionable. Andre Dillard and Andrew Rupcich could earn starts in their place. Tight end Kevin Rader, who often plays as an extension of the offensive line, is also questionable with a hip injury.
Defensive linemen TK McLendon Jr. was ruled OUT with a shoulder injury. The Titans will rely on the likes of Marlon Davidson, Keondre Coburn, and Quinton Bohanna across the defensive line. Wide receiver Colton Dowell was also ruled out after suffering a torn ACL and meniscus last weekend.
In the secondary, cornerback Anthony Kendall (knee) will not play. The Titans will miss Kendall on special teams. Eric Garror (illness/knee) isn’t nursing a gameday designation. Tay Gowan and Kendall Sheffield are candidates to be elevated from the practice squad.
Starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence is questionable (shoulder/finger) after logging three consecutive limited practices. With the Jaguars facing a win-and-in scenario, there’s no way Lawrence doesn’t play. CJ Beathard started last week to give Lawrence an extra week to get healthy.
Wide receivers Christian Kirk (groin) and Zay Jones (knee/hamstring) are questionable. Jacksonville recently triggered Kirk’s 21-day window to return from IR. No other Jaguar is sporting a gameday designation.
