Sunday will mark Ryan Tannehill’s long-awaited return.
Tannehill is expected to start for the Tennessee Titans against the Denver Broncos in Week 10, NFL Network Insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported Saturday.
With an ankle injury sustained in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts, Tannehill was questionable for the third straight week, but he will play this week.
With rookie Malik Willis starting under center, the Titans went 1-1 without Tannehill, beating the Houston Texans in Week 8 and falling to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9.
Tannehill has completed 95 of 146 passes (65.1%) for 1,097 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions in six games this year.
A 2019 Pro Bowler, Tannehill is 4-2 as a starter for Tennessee this year, and his leadership and experience will be welcome re-additions to the Titans‘ offense. However, his mobility will be a concern. His ankle could impede his ability to stay in the pocket and put him at further risk behind what has been a shaky offensive line in recent years.
At 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, the Titans (5-3) host the Broncos (3-5).
