Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan suffered an apparent leg injury in the first quarter of Monday night’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
Lewan walked off the field gingerly and had to be carted to the locker room, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
A three-time Pro Bowler and nine-year vet, Lewan has been a stalwart on the offensive line for Tennessee — also as the longest-tenured Titans player on the roster, as noted by the broadcast.
Lewan has struggled with staying on the field in past seasons, including an ACL tear in 2020.
Lewan’s absence will weigh heavy on the Titans, who face a Von Miller-led Bills rush that racked up seven sacks against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1.
A crew of Jordan Philips, Ed Oliver and Miller will have plenty of chances to pressure a leaky Titans O-line protection, which will trickle into a challenging game for Titans RB Derrick Henry, coming off a slow Week 1 performance (21 carries, 81 rushing yards).
The Titans started the game with injury woes, losing running back Trenton Cannon in the first minutes.
