Tannehill went down with a right ankle sprain in the Titans’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6 in London, and he hasn’t played since. Tannehill has been walking around the facility on his own and been making progress on his rehab, however he’s not ready to go just yet. And with the Titanson a short week between Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Falcons and Thursday’s game in Pittsburgh, there wasn’t much time for Tannehill to get fully healthy and back into the mix..

The Titans took Levis in the second round of the draft earlier this year out of Kentucky, but he failed to beat out Malik Willis to start the season for the backup job. But when Willis continued to struggle and Tannehill got hurt, Levis jumped in perfectly. He’s just thein his NFL debut, and the fifth player in league history with at least 20 attempts and a passer rating of at least 130 in his first game. headtopics.com
