Due to a right ankle injury that will likely need surgery, ESPN announced on Wednesday that Titans starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill would “very likely” miss the rest of the season. On Tennessee’s opening offensive drive on Sunday, outside linebacker Khalil Mack of the Los Angeles Chargers stepped on Tannehill’s right foot, causing the injury.
Tannehill was wheeled in by the team’s trainers to the changing room. The quarterback was severely wrapped on his right ankle and returned to the game after missing just one offensive series. After the Titans’ 17-14 defeat, coach Mike Vrabel said of Tannehill, “We are never going to question his toughness or his willingness to get back and help us win.”
The ankle Tannehill hurt in Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts was the same one that was damaged again. Malik Willis, the team’s backup quarterback, started the next two games while Tannehill sat out.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, Willis handled all of the first-team reps. On Wednesday, the Titans added veteran quarterback Joshua Dobbs to their active roster. They are 7-7 and first in the AFC South. If Tannehill were unable to play, Willis would take over as the starting and Dobbs would serve as the backup.
The Titans, who are 7-7 overall and have won the AFC South the previous two years in a row, have lost four straight games and now have a one-game lead over the division’s other teams. On Saturday, they’ll be hosting the Texans (1-12-1), the club that Willis faced in his NFL debut on October 30 and beat by a score of 17-10. Two of Tennessee’s last three games of the regular season will be played away from Nissan Stadium, in Jacksonville, against the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Dallas Cowboys.
This year, Tannehill has passed for 2,536 yards, scored 13 times, and thrown for six picks. Paul Kuharsky of NFL.com was the first to report that he was likely done for the season. Dillon Radunz, an offensive lineman with the Titans, went on injured reserve on Wednesday after suffering a knee injury against the Chargers on Sunday.
