Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill will start Sunday’s game against the visiting Seattle Seahawks after the team listed rookie Will Levis as inactive.

Levis injured his ankle late in Tennessee’s 19-16 overtime loss to the Houston Texans last Sunday.

Tannehill, 35, was 2-4 as Tennessee’s starter before sustaining an ankle injury on Oct. 15. Levis is 3-5 after taking over following the team’s bye, throwing four touchdowns in his debut in a 28-23 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 29.

Levis, 24, has completed 59.0 percent of his passes for 1,792 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions in eight games this season. He was selected by the Titans in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft with the No. 33 overall pick.

Tannehill, who is in the final season for a four-year, $118 million deal, has connected on 62.0 percent of his passes for 1,128 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions.

In addition to Levis, the Titans (5-9) listed the following players as inactive: offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill, defensive lineman TK McLendon, cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting, wide receiver Kyle Philips, defensive back K’Von Wallace and tight end Trevon Wesco.

The inactives for the Seahawks (7-7) include wide receiver Dee Eskridge, safety Jamal Adams, cornerback Devon Witherspoon, linebacker Frank Clark Sr., guard McClendon Curtis, offensive tackle Raiqwon O’Neal and defensive tackle Myles Adams.
