Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) was a full practice participant all week and has been removed from the final Week 11 injury report on Friday. It means that he will be active for the Titans for the first time since spraining his ankle in the Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. However, all of what little fantasy value Tannehill had left evaporated when the Titans handed the starting quarterback duties over to rookie Will Levis several weeks ago. As long as Levis doesn't miss time with an injury, he's expected to finish out the season as Tennessee's starting QB, with Tannehill relegated to sideline clipboard-holding duties. The 35-year-old Tannehill belongs on the waiver wire in all single-QB fantasy leagues.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) got in a full practice on Wednesday ahead of his team's Week 11 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tannehill injured his ankle several weeks back but has since been benched for rookie Will Levis despite his injury being fully healed. He served as the team's QB3 in Week 10 and was inactive but it remains to be seen whether he is elevated to the backup role against the Jaguars. Tannehill is unlikely to get his starting job back this season unless Levis gets injured.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is officially inactive for Week 10 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The team listed him as questionable entering the contest, but as kickoff approached, it became increasingly more likely that he would suit up. Tennessee recently named Will Levis as its permanent starter, meaning Tannehill would've been the backup if active. Instead, Malik Willis will operate as the No. 2 quarterback, at least for the time being. Tannehill's next chance to avoid the inactive list will come in Week 11 against Jacksonville.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is expected to be inactive for Week 10 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team listed him as questionable, leaving the door open for him to suit up, but he's a "long-shot to be active." Malik Willis will be active in his place, operating as the backup to rookie starter Will Levis.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said backup quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is questionable and will be a game-time decision to play in Week 10 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Tannehill has been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain in the Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. When he is able to return, he will be holding a clipboard on the sideline as the backup to rookie Will Levis. As a result, the 35-year-old veteran has lost what little fantasy appeal he had in two-QB leagues moving forward. If Tannehill misses another game in Week 10, Malik Willis will be the primary backup for Levis in his third NFL start.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) made his return to practice on Wednesday and was listed as a limited participant. It was the first time that Tannehill has practiced since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 6. The veteran signal-caller is clearly improving, but the Titans named rookie quarterback Will Levis as their starter moving forward. It means that whenever Tannehill is game-ready, he will be serving as Levis' backup while holding a clipboard on the sideline. Even in his first two NFL starts, Levis has displayed much more upside for Tennessee's offense than Tannehill. The 35-year-old Tannehill was completing only 62 percent of his pass attempts for 1,128 yards, two touchdowns and six touchdowns in six games before getting hurt.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) has officially been ruled out for Thursday Night Football in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This was expected as the veteran signal-caller has been dealing with an ankle injury since Week 6. Rookie quarterback Will Levis looked sharp in his debut, throwing four touchdowns in a victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8, and he could be in line for another solid performance against a banged-up Pittsburgh secondary that is missing safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. Even if Levis struggles, he brings a more dynamic edge to a Tennessee offense that has looked slow and stagnant under Tannehill when healthy.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is not practicing on Tuesday due to the ankle injury he suffered in the Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in London. Tannehill is dealing with a high-ankle sprain. Mike Vrabel has already announced that rookie Will Levis will start for Tennessee against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football. Levis threw four touchdowns and did not post a turnover in his NFL debut. If the rookie continues to shine, there's a good chance Tannehill has seen his last action for Tennessee. Although Levis posted a big fantasy outing in Week 8, a primetime road matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers could be a tough spot for an inexperienced signal-caller.
Oct 31, 2023 2:32 PM EST
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report. Tannehill had a bye week (Week 7) to recover from a high-ankle sprain that he suffered in Week 6, but he was unable to play in the Week 8 win over the Atlanta Falcons and is not expected to be active this Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rookie Will Levis threw four touchdown passes in his NFL debut this past Sunday and is going to get another start this week. The 35-year-old Tannehill won't be rushed back from his injury, especially if Levis continues to impress. The Titans could have somewhat of a QB controversy once Tannehill is ready to return. He hasn't been good so far in 2023, completing just 62% of his 158 pass attempts for 1,128 yards, two touchdowns and six interceptions in six games played.
Oct 30, 2023 7:56 PM EST
Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) missed his third consecutive practice on Friday and has been ruled out for Week 8 versus the Atlanta Falcons. This was widely expected, but the team has now provided official confirmation heading into the weekend. With Tannehill set to miss his first game of the season, rookie Will Levis is expected to start at quarterback for Tennessee. However, head coach Mike Vrabel has hinted at giving Malik Willis some snaps, too. Neither young signal-caller has legitimate fantasy appeal.
Oct 27, 2023 2:03 PM EST
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said that quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) will not practice on Tuesday, but the team will "see where he is at the end of the week." If Tannehill is unable to play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons, as expected, Vrabel anticipates both Malik Willis and rookie Will Levis playing on Sunday. Tannehill suffered a right high-ankle sprain in Week 6 and had last week's bye to rest up, but he's still not expected to play this coming weekend and could miss more time as well. The 35-year-old veteran signal-caller belongs on the waiver wire in all single-QB leagues, as he sits as the QB32 in fantasy through six games played. Willis would figure to be the better QB2 speculation in superflex leagues for however long Tannehill is out, but it sounds like the Titans want to get Levis some experience as well.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) hasn't officially been ruled out, but is expected to miss the Week 8 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The veteran quarterback suffered a right high-ankle sprain during the Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Luckily for Tennessee, they do have a bye this week, so they don't have to worry too much yet. However, Tannehill has a cast on his lower leg and is using crutches, so it doesn't sound like a minor issue. Malik Willis came in as relief for Tannehill after he went down in Week 6. However, Willis struggled in that game, so it wouldn't be shocking to see the Titans go with rookie Will Levis for Week 7.
Oct 21, 2023 9:12 PM EST
Unlike last year, Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) is not expected to need surgery for the right high-ankle sprain he suffered in the Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in London, according to sources. Tannehill is currently in a cast and there's no definitive timeline for his recovery, but this is "overall good news." The Titans are on bye in Week 7, but it's highly unlikely that Tannehill is going to be ready to go in Week 8 when the team faces the Atlanta Falcons. The 35-year-old veteran missed the final three games of 2022 with a similar injury and had surgery, so fantasy managers should be expecting him to miss a few games coming off the bye. The Titans are saying he's still their starting QB when healthy, but they'll have to choose between Malik Willis or rookie Will Levis to lead their offense in Week 8.
Oct 17, 2023 12:11 PM EST
Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) suffered a high right-ankle sprain in the Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in London, according to sources. The Titans have a bye in Week 7, which helps, but he could miss some time regardless and his availability is going to be in question for Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons. High-ankle sprains typically cause players to miss multiple weeks, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect Tannehill to be ready to roll coming out of this week's bye. Malik Willis took over for the hobbled Tannehill on Sunday in London, but the Titans could elect to give rookie Will Levis the first start of his NFL career if Tannehill isn't ready in Week 8.
Oct 16, 2023 7:31 PM EST
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel told reporters on Monday that quarterback Ryan Tannehill's (ankle) injury is similar to the one he dealt with in 2022, and the team will make a decision on his availability after their bye in Week 7. There's no word yet on whether it will be Malik Willis or rookie Will Levis under center if Tannehill isn't ready to play in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons. The 35-year-old veteran missed the final three games of the 2022 season and was seen on crutches after the loss to the Baltimore Ravens in London on Sunday, so it seems likely that he's going to miss some time, even with the bye week coming up. Tannehill remains the team's starter when healthy, but Willis or Levis could create some QB controversy in Tennessee if they make one or more starts and impress. It would be a surprise if the Titans gave Levis the nod over Willis.
Oct 16, 2023 6:36 PM EST
Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) was seen using crutches after Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens in London. Tannehill, who threw 76 yards and a touchdown, injured his ankle and was transported to the locker room on a cart. Normally, it wouldn't take long for a player to receive an MRI. But it may be longer than usual before fantasy managers receive the results, considering the team has a lengthy flight home. The Titans have a bye in Week 7, so there's a chance Tannehill could be back under center against the visiting Falcons in Week 8, depending on the results. But if the veteran signal-caller misses extended time, Malik Willis or Will Levis would presumably take over under center.
Oct 15, 2023 5:17 PM EST
Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) said that he is waiting on the results of X-rays on his injured ankle and will also need to undergo an MRI exam. Tannehill left the game in the fourth quarter after injuring his right ankle in the 24-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in London on Sunday and was replaced by Malik Willis. Before leaving with the ankle injury, the 35-year-old signal-caller went just 8-for-16 for 76 yards and an interception. The good news for the Titans and Tannehill is that they have their bye coming up in Week 7, but depending on the results of his X-rays and MRI, he could be forced to miss some time, starting in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 29. Willis, mainly for his rushing abilities, would be in play in two-QB superflex leagues if he makes any starts in place of Tannehill.
Oct 15, 2023 1:29 PM EST
Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) was carted to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens after suffering what appeared to be an ankle injury. He's officially questionable to return. He departed in the fourth quarter after completing eight of 16 passes for just 76 yards and one interception. While he was being taken to the locker room, second-year quarterback Malik Willis entered the game. He'll remain under center for Tennessee until Tannehill is able to return.
Oct 15, 2023 12:09 PM EST
Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has just 1,052 passing yards, three total touchdowns, and five interceptions through five games of the 2023 campaign. He finally got on the same page with DeAndre Hopkins in Week 5, but he remains off the fantasy radar in Week 6. The Titans will travel to London to face the Baltimore Ravens, who have allowed the second-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season. Even if Treylon Burks (knee) comes back for this contest, Tannehill's floor and ceiling are as low as they have been in his Titans' career. Don't start him this week in single-QB formats.
Oct 12, 2023 1:58 PM EST
Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 23 of his 34 passing attempts for 264 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Week 5 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. He was efficient for most of the game but missed a few end zone shots and threw an interception at the end of the game in desperation mode. Through five weeks, Tannehill has only posted one multi-touchdown game. That said, he remains off the fantasy radar in Week 6 in a matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.
