NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Ryan Tannehill's second injury to his right ankle suffered in the team's loss to the Chargers in Los Angeles Sunday will very likely end his season, multiple sources confirmed.

Malik Willis worked as the starter during the open portion of practice Wednesday and was the quarterback made available to the media in Tannehill's usual time slot.

Offensive coordinator Todd Downing spoke of Willis as if he would be the starter Saturday at Nissan Stadium against the Texans as the Titans look to end a four-game losing skid that's dropped them to 7-7.

But Tannehill's future beyond that was unclear.

Now PaulKuharsky.com has learned his injury could require surgury.

Tannehill originally suffered a sprain of the ankle on Oct. 23 against the Colts and missed two games before he returned. Sunday against the Chargers he got clipped as he escaped the pocket and ran for a yard, badly rolling it. He missed only one series.

A cart ride to the locker room for further examination was about the distance to the locker room, he said. He returned to play but dealt with significant pain.

The Titans signed Josh Dobbs to their 53-man roster early Tuesday as an additional QB.

Also, offensive lineman Dillon Radunz, who played well in limited action in Los Angeles Sunday, suffered a torn ACL against the Chargers, multiple sources said.

The 2021 second-round pick out of North Dakota State is done for the season and the start of training camp is likely to be in jeopardy for him.
