Tennessee Titans quarterback Will Levis is dealing with an ankle injury ahead of their Week 16 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday. The rookie suffered the injury late in their 19-16 overtime loss to the Houston Texans last Sunday, a game where he was sacked seven times.
Will Levis injury updates
Friday PM update: Levis will be listed as questionable heading into the weekend, per head coach Mike Vrabel.
Friday update: Levis was back at practice on Friday and was seen during the team’s stretch period. We will get his practice status and any injury status later this afternoon.
Thursday update: Levis was not spotted at practice this afternoon, per Sam Phalen of AtoZ Sports Nashville. This is the second straight day that he hasn’t practiced, which doesn’t bode well for his prospects of starting on Sunday. Ryan Tannehill and Malik Willis were both taking snaps in his place.
Fantasy football analysis
Levis has done a decent job as the starter since taking over for the veteran Tannehill in late October. Through eight games, the rookie from Kentucky has thrown for 1,792 yards with eight touchdowns, four interceptions, and three fumbles lost. While not bad, he hasn’t been much of a fantasy threat as he’s averaging just 13.4 FP per game.
The veteran Tannehill will start if Levis is unable to go and he wasn’t much of an impact fantasy player prior to the switch, averaging just 9.5 FP per game. If you’re a fantasy manager in the postseason, the only reason to even consider either guy at this point is if you’re in an extreme jam and have no other options. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
Seattle enters this game as a 3-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and Levis’ status most likely won’t affect the line at all. Tennessee has already been eliminated from postseason contention and is just playing out the string for the next three weeks. Meanwhile, Seattle is right in the thick of the NFC playoff hunt and has more to play for this week.
