NASHVILLE, Tenn.: Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan says an MRI on Monday confirms he tore his ACL in the Titans’ overtime win over Houston.
Lewan announced the news on social media.
Dont feel sorry for me, Im going to handle this rehab like a Pro and come back better than ever, Lewan wrote on Twitter.
The three-time Pro Bowl tackle was hurt with 6:12 left in the third quarter on an incomplete pass to A.J. Brown. He was able to walk gingerly off the field and then to the locker room by himself. Lewan’s replacement, Ty Sambrailo, was beaten by J.J. Watt for a sack two plays later with Ryan Tannehill stripped of the ball.
But the Titans (5-0) pulled out a 42-36 win in overtime to remain one of the NFL’s three undefeated teams.
I cant wait to watch my guys crush it, Im going to be the biggest titans fan each and every Sunday, Lewan said. We are doing something special here and this small set back doesnt change a thing!”
Titans coach Mike Vrabel is scheduled to speak to reporters Monday afternoon.
