Since they made him a first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, left tackle Taylor Lewan has been a mainstay for the Tennessee Titans in Nashville.
Lewan, 30, remains a fan favorite after earning three Pro Bowl appearances while being tasked with protecting the blindside.
That’s one of the reasons we could hear a pin drop inside Nissan Stadium during Tennessee’s game against the Buffalo Bills Monday night.
Lewan was tasked with blocking for Derrick Henry in the second quarter after helping open up a huge hole for the running back earlier in the game that led to a 76-yard touchdown.
Unfortunately, the former Michigan standout went down in a heap after jumping on to a pile later in the second quarter.
As you can see, Taylor Lewan shifted awkwardly before he hit the turf. The star left tackle laid motionless on the field as those on hand brought out a stretcher.
It’s similar to the scene that took place in Pittsburgh Sunday night when Seattle Seahawks defensive end Darrell Taylor suffered a head injury and also had to be stretchered off the field.
As with Taylor, it does look like Lewan escaped serious injury. He was seen giving a thumbs up as he exited the field and ended up being evaluated for a concussion.
We’ll obviously have further updates as they become available.
