Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel indicated the team could go with a two-quarterback system if Ryan Tannehill can’t play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.
“I would imagine that if Ryan can’t play, I would anticipate both of those quarterbacks (Malik Willis and Will Levis) playing in the football game,” Vrabel said, per NFL writer Paul Kuharsky.
Vrabel added that Tannehill isn’t using a walker for his injured ankle, and they will monitor his situation as the week progresses.
Tannehill suffered the injury in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens. After taking Tannehill’s place, Willis was sacked four times in that contest, throwing for 74 yards on five attempts.
Willis has failed to provide Tennessee with competent quarterback play when called upon. He has zero passing touchdowns with only 234 yards and three interceptions in three career starts.
The Titans selected Levis with the 33rd overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. The Kentucky product was a highly touted prospect, throwing for 5,252 yards with 43 touchdowns in his last two years with the Wildcats.
Levis hasn’t been active for a game this season, as Willis remained the backup quarterback through six games.
The 2-4 Titans will face off against the 4-3 Falcons on Sunday.
