NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The knee injury Taylor Lewan suffered on the Titans' first snap on offense in Buffalo Monday night is serious enough to end his season, Lewan's podcast Bussin' with the Boys reported.

It's the second big knee injury for Lewan in three years and leaves a weak offensive line without a player it was counting on. He was on crutches in the locker room of Highmark Stadium after the game.

He was in the locker room Wednesday with no crutches or brace and moving fine, then was spotted at LAX that evening, presumably heading for a second opinion.

Dennis Daley replaced Lewan during the Titans' 41-7 loss to the Bills and when he declared Lewan out this week Mike Vrabel said Daley would start against Las Vegas  

Daley is listed as the backup for both tackle spots.

Dillon Radunz, a 2021 second-rounder, played at the spot in last year's game against San Francisco but is listed as a reserve guard.

The Titans typically don't make two moves to fix one problem. But if they have issues, rookie right tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere could ultimately move left tackle with the Titans turning to Daley on the right. 

Lewan left the season-opener against the Giants briefly and was listed on the Thursday injury report last week as limited with a knee injury.

Lewan has not played a complete season since 2017, missing 20 games since then.

He is the member of the team with the longest tenure, joining as the team's first-round pick chosen by GM Ruston Webster in 2014.

With him now out of action, Derrick Henry and Kevin Byard of the 2016 draft class and Ben Jones who was signed as a free agent the same year are the elder statesmen.
