The Titans on Friday were dealt a big blow on their offensive line, as offensive tackle Taylor Lewan will have to serve a four-game suspension to start 2019 after his appeal to the NFL was denied.
Lewan’s suspension was upheld and he will begin serving his suspension in the week leading up to the first game of the regular season. He will be eligible to practice with the team and play in both of their remaining preseason games.
Lewan released a video in July announcing a test showed the banned substance ostarine in his system and said he took a polygraph test to show he did not take knowingly take it. The policy makes no exceptions for that as players are deemed responsible for anything in their system.
It appears that Dennis Kelly will be the guy to serve on the line in place of Lewan, a former first-round pick of the Titans.
