Falcons LG Andy Levitre (triceps) did not practice Tuesday.

Levitre was able to return in the season finale, but he only lasted five plays before having to bow out. He appears legitimately questionable to face the Rams on Saturday.
Jan 2 - 9:31 AM

Falcons LG Andy Levitre (triceps) was left off the final injury report.

It means he is ready to play for the first time since Week 13. With C Alex Mack extremely questionable with a calf injury, it is a great time for Levitre to get back on the field.

Falcons declared LG Andy Levitre (triceps) inactive for Week 14 against the Saints.

Ben Garland is starting at left guard in Levitre's place. Also inactive for the Falcons WR Nick Williams, CB Leon McFadden, LB Sean Weatherspoon, OG Sean Harlow, TE Eric Saubert and CB C.J. Goodwin.

Falcons LG Andy Levitre is out for Week 14 with a partial triceps tear.

NFL Network reports Levitre's injury is not year ending, but it is likely to cost him at least 2-3 games. Levitre has earned solid run- and pass-blocking grades from PFF and had missed just seven snaps all year before going down in Week 13.

Falcons LG Andy Levitre isn't a lock to keep his starting job this season.

Despite grading out favorably in Pro Football Focus' guard rankings, particularly as a run blocker, ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure noticed Levitre got pushed around far too often and doesn't believe he has a firm grasp on his starting job. Sixth-round rookie Wes Schweitzer is expected to compete with Levitre in camp. Levitre is due a $4 million salary this season.

Falcons acquired LG Andy Levitre from the Titans in exchange for a 2016 sixth-round pick and 2017 conditional pick.

Good job by Titans GM Ruston Webster to find someone to take on Levitre's contract AND get something in return. Levitre was signed to a six-year, $46.8 million contract in 2013 but wasn't a fit in coach Ken Whisenhunt's offense. He was replaced at left guard by fellow veteran Byron Bell. Levitre is still just 29 and had a ton of success in Buffalo before Tennessee. Going back to a zone-blocking scheme like Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan's should help a lot. Levitre should step right into the lineup ahead of Mike Person. The rest of the Falcons' line: LT Jake Matthews, C Joe Hawley, RG Chris Chester, RT Ryan Schraeder.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said it "sounds like" the Titans will retain LG Andy Levitre.

Set to count $8.6 million against this year's cap, Levitre looked like a sure-fire cut after he lost his starting job to Byron Bell. The Titans do not have much veteran depth on their interior line, however, and they have the cap room to carry Levitre for another season. Tennessee could save $2.3 million by cutting Levitre.

Titansonline's Jim Wyatt said he "can't see a scenario" where G Andy Levitre makes the team without being a starter.

Considering Levitre has all but lost his left guard job to Byron Bell, this means his days in Tennessee are likely done. The Titans can save $2.3 million by releasing Levitre, but they will have to eat $6.3 million in dead money.

Titans OG Andy Levitre conceded that he might be on the outs in Tennessee.

"I am on the team, so I’d love to stay,’’ Levitre said Tuesday. "But it’s above my pay grade. (My mindset) is to do the best that I can and see how things shake out from there." Levitre, signed to a $46.8 million contract ahead of the 2013 season, hasn't lived up to his contract and has been relegated to the second-team offense this summer. Byron Bell is working as the Titans' starting left guard.

Titans OG Andy Levitre has been running with the second-team offense this week.

Byron Bell started running ahead of Levitre on Sunday, and the Titans have stuck with it through the week. Coach Ken Whisenhunt hinted earlier this offseason that a benching could be afoot, and Levitre hasn't reasserted himself in camp. Levitre's six-year, $46.8 million contract is shaping up as a mega bust.
Thu, Aug 20, 2015 04:03:00 PM

Titans LG Andy Levitre ceded some first-team practice reps to Byron Bell in Sunday's practice.

Levitre has never lived up to the six-year, $45.8 million deal he signed in 2013, and coach Ken Whisenhunt hinted in June Levitre's starting job could be in danger if he did not up his game. That said, this could just be the Titans trying out different line combinations to be ready if anyone goes down. Either way, the Titans' offensive line has to play better than it did in the preseason opener.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Andy Levitre will play exclusively at guard during training camp.

Levitre worked at both guard and center at OTAs. Levitre's starting job remains in question after allowing a career-high six sacks last season. The Titans can save $6.5 million by releasing him.
Sat, Jul 11, 2015 07:48:00 PM

Coach Ken Whisenhunt hinted LG Andy Levitre isn't locked in as a starter.

Levitre has been working at both guard and center, and Whisenhunt admitted the team is exploring its options at left guard opposite RG Chance Warmack. Veterans Byron Bell and Jamon Meredith have been seeing reps next to LT Taylor Lewan. Free agent Evan Mathis has also been loosely linked to the Titans. Levitre has been a bust since signing a six-year, $46.8 million deal in 2013.

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky suggests LG Andy Levitre could be cut this offseason.

One of many Tennessee's free agency blunders, Levitre was signed to a six-year, $46.8M contract in March of 2013. He's battled nagging injuries over the last two seasons and badly underperformed this year along with much of the team's expensive offensive line. Levitre is currently 58th among 81 qualifiers in PFF's guard grades and is owed $6.5M in 2015.
