It will be life after Taylor Lewan Part 2 for the Titans in Week 8, as the star left tackle was lost for the season with a torn ACL in Week 6.
In their first game without Lewan, the Titans’ offensive line held its own against an elite Steelers pass-rush, giving hope that things will be OK the rest of the way.
Tennessee will also hope to see the 2020 debut of No. 1 corner Adoree’ Jackson, who has missed all six games thus far after being placed on IR prior to the start of the season.
The Bengals are dealing with their own issues upfront, as right tackle Bobby Hart has already been ruled out, left tackle Jonah Williams (neck) is day-to-day and center Trey Hopkins is in the concussion protocol.
All of those offensive line injuries are bad news for a Bengals team that is tied for the most sacks permitted this season.
On top of those issues, the statuses of running back Joe Mixon (foot) and cornerback William Jackson III (concussion) are up in the air at the moment after both were ruled out in Week 7.
