Titans declared LT Taylor Lewan (ankle) inactive for Sunday's Week 17 game against the Colts.
Lewan hasn't played since going down in Week 12. It was still an encouraging season for the No. 11 overall pick, who performed at a higher level than Greg Robinson or Jake Matthews when he was on the field. The rest of the Titans inactives: Zach Mettenberger, Jemea Thomas, Rico Richardson, Dontay Much, Ropati Pitoitua, Terren Jones, Ropati Pitoitua and Terren Jones. Sun, Dec 28, 2014 11:50:00 AM

The Nashville Tennessean reports TItans LT Taylor Lewan's ankle sprain is believed to be of the "high" variety.

It's extremely bad news for a Titans team that's already down Michael Roos (knee, injured reserve). Tennessee is now left with Michael Oher and Byron Stingily at tackle. Stingily manned the blindside in Lewan's Week 12 absence, with Oher sticking on the right side. Lewan should be considered week to week, but likely to miss at least two games.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan has been diagnosed with a sprained ankle.

There was some initial fear that Lewan broke his ankle when he got rolled up on against the Eagles in Week 12, so this qualifies as good news. The bad news is it looks like a severe sprain and Lewan was getting abused by Trent Cole even before the injury.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan left Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Eagles in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.

Lewan got rolled up from behind and had to be helped off the field. The No. 11 overall pick was having a brutal day before leaving, getting lit up by Trent Cole and a fearsome Eagles pass rush. Lewan was replaced by Byron Stingily.

Titans first-round OT Taylor Lewan pleaded guilty Thursday to two misdemeanors for being drunk and disorderly.

This stems from an incident with an Ohio State fan following Michigan's loss to the Buckeyes in Ann Arbor last season. He was originally charged with aggravated assault and battery. Instead, he pleaded down and is not expected to face discipline from the NFL as the incident occurred before he was in the league. Lewan has started the last three games at left tackle for the Titans, showing well.

Rookie OT Taylor Lewan saw some time at left guard during Titans practice.

With Andy Levitre recovering from an appendectomy, the Titans mixed and matched at left guard all practice. The Titans getting Lewan work at guard could be an indication they see him as a reserve option this season. Michael Roos and Michael Oher are currently penciled in as the Tennessee's starting tackles.

Titans agreed to terms with No. 11 overall pick OT Taylor Lewan on a four-year contract.

Lewan was the lone remaining unsigned rookie. As is the case with all first-round picks, the deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2018. Lewan will get run at both tackle spots in camp, but is currently behind Michael Roos at left tackle and Michael Oher at right. We'd assume he has his sights set on Oher. Roos is fully expected to remain on the blindside this season.

Titans rookie OT Taylor Lewan's assault trial has been set for October 28 in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Conveniently, that falls during the Titans' bye week. Lewan is facing one count of misdemeanor aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery stemming from a fight in Ann Arbor last December. It's quite possible the sides will avoid a trial with a plea deal.

Sources tell the Tennessean that the Titans and No. 11 overall pick Taylor Lewan are making steady progress toward a contract.

Given the league's rookie wage scale, there's no reason Lewan should still be unsigned. Perhaps part of the holdup is Thursday's court date where Lewan is facing three misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a Dec. 1, 2013 fight. The only other unsigned rookie is Browns No. 8 overall pick Justin Gilbert.

The Titans are cross-training first-round pick Taylor Lewan at both tackle positions.

The Titans used the No. 11 overall pick on a swing tackle. "Taylor has to be able to play both sides," said OL coach Bob Bostad. The Nashville Tennessean previously stated Lewan would "need an impressive training camp" to become a starter. Michael Roos is the Titans' left tackle, with Michael Oher on the right.

The Nashville Tennessean believes first-round pick Taylor Lewan is "going to need an impressive training camp" to become a starter.

Michael Roos isn't going anywhere at left tackle, and the Titans invested in RT Michael Oher in free agency. One of the most surprising, and ultimately head-scratching picks in May's draft, Lewan may wind up as the Titans' swing tackle in 2014. Roos' contract expires in 2015, when Lewan should replace him.

Titans first-round pick Taylor Lewan will be arraigned on three assault charges in Ann Arbor Monday.

The charges stem from an altercation with some Ohio State fans following last year's game. Lewan says he was trying to break up a scuffle, not fight. We're not expecting this to end with any discipline from the league, and the Titans likely aren't either. They used the No. 11 overall pick on Lewan despite having Michael Roos and Michael Oher on the roster.

No. 11 overall pick Taylor Lewan saw playing time at right tackle in his first Titans practice.

Lewan was a left tackle at Michigan, but the Titans are cross-training him at both tackle spots. Depending on how quickly he adjusts, he could push Michael Oher for the starting right tackle job. There have also been rumblings the Titans might be willing to "move" LT Michael Roos, clearing up a job for Lewan.
Sat, May 17, 2014 03:29:00 PM

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said No. 11 overall pick OT Taylor Lewan will be given the chance to compete for a starting job.

With Michael Roos in a contract year, the Titans don't need Lewan to be a Week 1 starter, but he could beat out Michael Oher for the starting right tackle spot in training camp. Lewan may ultimately be used in a swing role as a rookie before taking over on the blindslide for Roos in 2015.

The Nashville Tennessean doesn't envision No. 11 overall pick OT Taylor Lewan starting for the Titans as a rookie.

Michael Roos is entrenched at left tackle, while Michael Oher was signed to man the right side. Oher is a turnstile and penalty machine, so we could easily see Lewan beating him out. But Oher's deal did include $9.5 million guaranteed. Roos is entering the final year of his deal. Lewan may go the Riley Reiff route and handle swing duties in year one. It was a puzzling pick for the Titans.
