Titans QB Will Levis expected to start at Pittsburgh as Tannehill nurses ankle: report
The University of Kentucky product completed more than 65% of his passes on Sunday against the Falcons and threw for four touchdowns.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – After a four-touchdown performance Sunday against the Falcons in his NFL debut, rookie quarterback Will Levis is expected to once again get the starting nod for the Titans when they play the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports Ryan Tannehill is still recovering from a high ankle sprain and needs more time to recover, so Levis is expected to get his second start on Thursday night. The University of Kentucky product completed more than 65% of his passes on Sunday against the Falcons and racked up 238 passing yards and four touchdown passes – three of which were hauled in by Titans star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
On Monday, Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said the team is evaluating Tannehill. If he can’t play, the starter will likely be Levis, Vrabel said.
The Titans took Levis in the second round of the 2023 NFL draft. He’s starting over 2022 third-round pick Malik Willis.
