NFL Week 3 - The Tennessee Titans will be without left tackle Taylor Lewan for the rest of the year, as it is officially announced he is done for the season. 

Lewan was carted off the field in the first quarter of Tennessee's Monday Night Football game against the Buffalo Bills.

The announcement came from Lewan's podcast, "Bussin' With the Boys," via Twitter.

Lewan has been a member of the Tennessee Titans since they drafted him 11th overall in 2014. Starting every game he's played in since 2015, Lewan has missed 19 games since 2019, including 11 missed games in 2020 with a torn ACL. 

When healthy Lewan has proven to be a centerpiece of the Titans offensive line. According to Sports Info Solutions, Lewan has a career 2.3% blown block rate, including a career 2.1% blown block rate on rushing attempts. Lewan performed at a league-average level in 2021 upon returning from his 2020 ACL injury, which was below where Lewan played at prior to injury.

While Lewan has one more year left in his current contract with the Titans with a cap hit of $14.8 million, OverTheCap notes that cutting Lewan has no dead money attached to it.

Hasn't been a PBer since 2018. Hasn't played a full season since 2017. Knee injury at this age at that position doesn't sound good. May just have to plan to move on unfortunately.
