Tennessee Titans quarterback Will Levis is sealing with a foot injury ahead of their Week 18 season finale against the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday. Levis suffered the injury while being strip sacked in the second quarter of last week’s 26-3 loss to the Houston Texans and didn’t return to the contest. Veteran Ryan Tannehill took over for the rest of the game.

This game has major postseason implications for Jacksonville. The Jags can clinch the AFC South title with a victory. A Jags loss would mean the winner of the Houston Texans-Indianapolis Colts matchup would claim the division crown.

Will Levis injury updates

Friday update - Will Levis has officially been ruled out for Sunday’s game and Ryan Tannehill will get the start for Tennessee. He missed practice on Wednesday, but returned as a limited participant on both Thursday and Friday. With the Titans already well eliminated from playoff contention, they have decided to shut the promising rookie down for the season finale.

Fantasy football analysis

With Levis shut down, Tennessee has turned Tannehill in what could be his final game with the organization. The veteran has put up below average numbers in eight games this season, throwing for 1,448 yards with just two touchdowns and six interceptions.

If you’re in a weekly fantasy league that is still going, there are several options you can turn to over Tannehill. The same goes for DFS.

Betting analysis

Jacksonville enters the game as a 3.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, accompanied by a total of 41. With Jags QB Trevor Lawrence questionable for this matchup, I’d lean towards the under on the total.
