As expected, Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill will not suit up in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons, but who will replace him as the starter remains to be seen.
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel announced that Tannehill will miss Sunday’s game due to his ankle injury. However, he was not ready to say if either Malik Willis or Will Levis would start.
Vrabel has said all week that both quarterbacks will play, and he said the same on Friday. On Wednesday, the Titans head coach even left the door open for the young signal-callers to alternate series throughout the game.
Ryan Tannehill OUT for #Titans on Sunday.

Vrabel not ready to announce starting QB, says plan is same — we’ll see both young guys.

Alternating quarterbacks would be a terrible idea, as doing so would make it extremely difficult for either to get into a rhythm when they’re constantly in and out of the game.
A report earlier in the week stated that Levis would be the Titans’ primary quarterback, and I think that’s the route Tennessee will ultimately take, with Willis mixing in here and there in a package.
