Titans QB Ryan Tannehill Feeling Better, But Will He Return to Action vs the Broncos?


NASHVILLE – The Ryan Tannehill watch started once again on Wednesday.

The Titans quarterback, sidelined the last two weeks with an injured ankle, said today he's beginning to feel better.

"The question of the year," a smiling Tannehill said when asked about his health. "I am feeling good, getting better day-by-day. But definitely seeing the progress now, so that's exciting."

The Titans face the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Nissan Stadium.

Tannehill didn't play in Sunday's game at Kansas City, when rookie Malik Willis made his second career start.

Tannehill was on the practice field on Wednesday at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park.

He was listed as "limited" on the official Injury Report.

"It is definitely getting better," Tannehill said of his pain level. "It is something I am dealing with. The nature of the injury, it is not something that gets better overnight. It is definitely testing my patience. … I am just trying to stay patient with it, doing everything I can to help it heal the best I can. I am excited to get back out there."

Tannehill practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and Friday of last week, and he made the trip to Kansas City for Sunday's game. Tannehill didn't travel with the team the prior week to Houston.

But after warming up in the field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, Tannehill was among the team's inactives.

Tannehill suffered the ankle injury on October 23 vs Colts, and he missed practices on Wednesday and Friday of Texans week.

Time will tell what Tannehill's status will be at the end of this week.

Kickoff for Sunday's game vs the Broncos is scheduled for noon.

"It just has to get to a point where I can go and do my job effectively," Tannehill said, "and be able to run the offense, move around enough to not be a statue in the pocket and not put myself or the ball or in harm's way."
