NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Some might call Tennessee's push for a second straight playoff berth desperate. Three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan suggests a different motivation for the Titans.
"Everyone here has an understanding of what's at stake and we're all willing to do what we've been doing the past few weeks to get it done," Lewan said. "I don't think it matters who gets the credit. ... It's been a cool year. We just got to keep it going."
NEW YORK (AP) — Buffalo defensive end Jerry Hughes was fined $53,482 by the NFL on Saturday for confronting an official in the tunnel after the Bills-Dolphins game last weekend. Hughes accused the official of calling him a vulgar name.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Titans coach Mike Vrabel says two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan is having tests on his right foot after leaving Tennessee's loss in Buffalo.
Lewan played 17 snaps before being replaced by Tyler Marz. Lewan told reporters after the game he felt like he was a liability to the team because he couldn't push off the foot and didn't have any power.
Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith says he has been involved in two errant calls the last two weeks.
Smith says the NFL notified the team that he shouldn't have been flagged for leading with his helmet while tackling New England receiver Chris Hogan in Week 2. Then, officials missed a holding call on Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan on a third-down play late last week that essentially allowed the Titans to run out the clock.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans still don't know who will start at quarterback Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Marcus Mariota was limited all week with an arm injury and is questionable for the second straight game. Blaine Gabbert started in place of Mariota in Tennessee's 20-17 victory over the Houston Texans .
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — One of the NFL's most formidable fronts is off to a slow start.
The Jacksonville Jaguars, who ranked second in the NFL with 55 sacks in 2017, have four in two games — on pace for 32 this season. Players insist the issue is all about the schedule and not any "Sacksonville" shortcomings.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have signed offensive tackle Tyler Marz from their practice squad and have waived cornerback Kenneth Durden.
Marz (pronounced MARE-its) was on the Los Angeles Chargers' active roster for six weeks last season but didn't appear in a game. The 6-foot-7, 316-pound Marz originally signed with the Titans in 2016 as an undrafted free agent from Wisconsin, where he made 40 consecutive starts at left tackle.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans limited Marcus Mariota at practice Thursday and gave more work to backup Blaine Gabbert, and coach Mike Vrabel says they want to evaluate which quarterback will give them the best chance against the Houston Texans.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have added offensive lineman David Quessenberry to their practice squad.
Quessenberry went to the Houston Texans in the sixth round of the 2013 draft and spent three years on their non-football illness list as he battled non-Hodgkin's lymphoma .
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have lost their three-time Pro Bowl tight end at least for a big chunk of the season.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota is being evaluated after hurting his throwing arm, and two-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan is in the concussion protocol.
And that's just the latest injuries for the Titans.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Around 10,000 spectators remained at the finish of the Miami Dolphins' marathon win over Tennessee, and they were hardly fair weather fans.
Lightning forced two delays of about two hours each Sunday, and it took Miami more than seven hours to complete a 27-20 victory.
"Appreciate all you Dolphins fans sticking it out tonight," quarterback Ryan Tannehill shouted to a camera as he headed for the locker room. "Win No. 1, baby."
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Delanie Walker will leave the white suit to celebrate a new contract to teammate Taylor Lewan. The three-time Pro Bowl tight end going into his 13th NFL season is too busy working to be better than last season.
And now Walker is under contract through 2020 with yet another contract extension.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Taylor Lewan has waited and planned for the day when the Tennessee Titans would reward him with a new multimillion-dollar contract.
So the quirky and gifted left tackle was ready when the Titans signed him Friday to a five-year, $80 million contract, making Lewan the NFL's highest-paid offensive lineman.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans and Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker have agreed to a two-year extension keeping him under contract through the 2020 season.
The Titans announced the deal Friday, hours after signing Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan to a five-year contract.
Walker has played in three straight Pro Bowls and was the game's MVP in January. Now 33, Walker is entering his 13th season and sixth with Tennessee.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Taylor Lewan answered the biggest question for the Tennessee Titans heading into training camp by showing up for work along with the rest of his teammates.
How long it takes to get a new contract for the two-time Pro Bowl left tackle remains to be seen.
General manager Jon Robinson said they're making good progress, even if he isn't ready to say when that might be wrapped up.
TENNESSEE TITANS (10-8)
OPEN CAMP: July 25, Nashville, Tennessee
LAST YEAR: Titans swept Jacksonville but missed AFC South title after losing three straight in December. Winning first postseason game in 14 years with amazing comeback in Kansas City didn't save coach Mike Mularkey, not when he stuck with OC Terry Robiskie following ugly rout in New England.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan is skipping the Titans' mandatory minicamp while his agents negotiate a new contract for the two-time Pro Bowl lineman.
Titans general manager Jon Robinson said in a statement Tuesday just before the team started a three-day minicamp that Lewan's representatives told the team he would not be attending.
Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey says he doesn't think quarterback Marcus Mariota's sprained left knee or left tackle Taylor Lewan's sore back should keep either out of the Titans' game with San Francisco on Sunday.
Mularkey said Monday that he anticipates both could practice Wednesday.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan remembers only too well how the Titans always seemed to find a way to lose through his first two seasons in the NFL.
Now they're finding ways to win, and that's all that matters.
NEW YORK (AP) — Jets cornerback Buster Skrine was fined $48,620 for his illegal hit on Tampa Bay receiver DeSean Jackson last week and Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict wasn't fined after his ejection against Tennessee for pushing away the arm of an official who tried to break up a sideline scuffle.
Burfict wasn't fined for his late hit out of bounds two plays earlier, either.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A four-play sequence sums up the Tennessee Titans' season so far.
With first-and-goal at the Cleveland 1, the Titans ran DeMarco Murray twice without success. Marcus Mariota missed a wide-open tight end Delanie Walker in the end zone. Then they couldn't reach pay dirt on fourth down with Derrick Henry running behind a line featuring Pro Bowler Taylor Lewan at left tackle and All-Pro Jack Conklin at right tackle.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan is day to day after an MRI exam on his left knee.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Monday the exam found Lewan's injury wasn't serious. The Pro Bowl left tackle was hurt on the third play of a 16-10 loss in Miami.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans said they heard the whistle and stopped playing.
Reshad Jones kept going.
Jones scored on a 38-yard fumble return as players on both teams stood and watched, and the bizarre first-quarter score became the difference Sunday when the Miami Dolphins won 16-10.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans starting cornerback LeShaun Sims has been ruled out of Sunday's season opener against Oakland with an injured groin.
Sims was hurt in a special teams drill Monday and has not practiced since. That could leave first-round draft pick Adoree Jackson starting.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey refused to say Friday who will start, saying only that Tennessee has enough depth to overcome Sims' injury. Mularkey says Jackson will play a good bit.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Only one offensive lineman needs to make a mistake to mess up a play, turning a promising drive into a three-and-out.
Keeping a group of five starting linemen together for consecutive seasons only makes a unit stronger.
The Tennessee Titans have done just that and are setting their sights on being the best offensive line in the NFL, even if their production will be measured only by how many sacks are allowed or the yards gained by running backs.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have agreed to a multi-year contract extension with offensive tackle Dennis Kelly.
The team did not announce terms of the deal Wednesday, two days before the Titans report for training camp.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have picked up the fifth-year option on Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan.
General manager Jon Robinson announced the move Tuesday.
The 11th pick overall in 2014, the 6-foot-7 Lewan helped anchor a much-improved offensive line last season. The Titans ranked third in the NFL in rushing offense and also tied for seventh-fewest sacks allowed with 28 a year after giving up a league-worst 54 sacks in 2015.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Quarterback Marcus Mariota is out and so are the Tennessee Titans.
Mariota broke his right leg in a 38-17 loss at Jacksonville on Saturday, a crushing setback for a team that had so many things go right while winning three in a row and seven of 10 previously.
"That breaks my heart, man," Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan said. "Love him. That guy's an awesome dude. For that to happen to him, it's unfair."
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan has made no secret of his desire to be considered the NFL's best at his position, the kind of reputation built by playing well against the top pass rushers.
Not only has Jack Conklin been one of the league's most impressive rookies, he's already considered one of the league's top right tackles.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan practiced fully on Friday and will start against the Chicago Bears on Sunday despite having a sprained left knee.
Lewan hurt his knee on the Titans' final offensive series in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. He wore a protective brace on the knee in Friday's practice and says he expects to be 100 percent by Sunday.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans already have proven they're better than they were each of the past two years. To take another step forward, the Tennessee Titans need to quit falling behind by double digits on the road.
They need to make the needed adjustments quickly with three of their final five games away from home.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan has a sprained left knee and is day-to-day.
Titans coach Mike Mularkey announced the injury update on Monday and said it is possible Lewan plays Sunday when the Titans (5-6) visit Chicago (2-8).
