Saturday PM update: Tannehill is expected to start in Week 10 vs. the Broncos on Sunday, per NFL Network. Tannehill has missed the past two weeks due to an ankle injury and enters this week questionable to play. It looks like Tannehill is OK after getting in some practices this week. Malik Willis will head back to the bench as the backup. WR Treylon Burks is also set to return to the lineup, so this is a big boost for Tennessee’s offense.

Thursday PM update: Tannehill practiced in full on Thursday, which likely means he is ready to go for this week against the Broncos.

Thursday update: Tannehill appeared to be a bit more mobile at practice on Thursday, per John Glennon.

Wednesday PM update: Tannehill was officially limited.

Wednesday update: Tannehill at least logged a limited participation in practice, but we still await his official status.

The Tennessee Titans have gotten a glimpse of what life without Ryan Tannehill under center could look like, and it hasn’t been pretty. Malik Willis hasn’t been able to adjust his collegiate game to the NFL, so the Titans are in desperate need of Tannehill to heal. Derrick Henry has been the focal point of the offense, but Tennessee needs to have a confident passer under center to round out their offense. Tannehill has missed the last two games and is dealing with a lot of pain this week.

Fantasy football implications for Week 10

Tannehill hasn’t been a fantasy-relevant quarterback because he hasn't had consistent performances with his wide receivers. If Tannehill is back, nothing much changes for fantasy football. Henry should still be the focal point of the offense, and we have yet to see a pass-catcher cement themselves with weekly fantasy football value.
