The Titans need a quarterback with Ryan Tannehill likely out with an ankle injury, and it won’t be Malik Willis. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Levis is being prepared for the start this Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. The report said Willis could also play. The Titans also have not ruled out Tannehill yet.
The Titans traded up for Levis in the second round of the NFL Draft, and he has a chance to get in the team’s long-term plans at quarterback. That audition reportedly starts Sunday, though Titans coach Mike Vrabel wouldn’t confirm that Levis will start.
Vrabel: “I never said that Will (Levis) will be the starter. Both (Levis and Malik Willis) will play if Ryan can’t.”
So that’s interesting.

Tannehill is a free agent after the season and seems unlikely to return. That leaves the door open for Levis, though he couldn’t beat out Willis for the primary backup job to start the season and still hasn’t played in a regular-season game.
Levis was considered a first-round prospect leading up to the NFL Draft but slipped to the second round. He has an exciting skill set, which is why Tennessee moved up to get him. If he plays well with Tannehill presumably out, it could be the start of a new era for the Titans.
