Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) – The practice portion of the mandatory mini camp ended Wednesday for the Tennessee Titans and several players did not practice. This included offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, who is currently in rehab at the team’s facilities.
Lewan tore up his ACL last November, when the Titans hosted the Houston Texans. It has been a long road to recovery, but he feels good about the progress that has been made.
“It’s been a long time to think and grow so the knee is doing fine. I’m making leadership changes now and running too, ”said Lewan.
The former Michigan star has made it clear he’s thrilled to be returning to the field with his teammates admitting he misses training.
“I have never missed training, I liked having missed it as well as personally. I’m telling you what, watching the boys play ball, you miss it so much, ”added Lewan.
There is no specific timeline for the Pro Bowler’s three-time return to the training ground, but the hope is that he will be ready to go by the start of the regular season.
“I could sit here and predict a bunch of things, but you never know what can happen in the next six to seven weeks. I expect everything to be fine, smooth, but you never know what might happen, ”said Lewan. “I think what’s important is that I take each day one day at a time.”
Lewan said Titans head coach Mike Vrabel also did a great job making sure all players were ready to come back, which is not surprising given that Vrabel is a former player. and that it is not too far from the game.
