Ryan Tannehill: DNP on Wednesday after practice in Week 16

Ryan Tannehill, the quarterback for Tennessee, was listed on the injury report as of Wednesday after practice. Tannehill has a problem with his ankle, according to the report. Varying news sources have stated that Tannehill could be done for the season. Turron Davenport, a reporter at ESPN, offered this on the matter on December 21st, 2022.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans will “very likely” be without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill for the remainder of the season due to a right ankle injury that is likely to require surgery, sources confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday.

The following teammates of his were DNP due to injuries (ie. not rest) on the report for Tennessee (list is not exhaustive): Amani Hooker, Jeffery Simmons, and Kristian Fulton. In total, Tennessee had 18 players listed on their half of the injury report. That is a very large number and Tennessee really looks like they are in terrible shape heading into the game against Houston.

Houston lists 12 players on their half of the report

Meanwhile, the Houston Texans had 12 players listed on their half of the report. They included Brandin Cooks, their best wide receiver, on the report. However, he was upgraded from LP to FP on Wednesday.

If you pick through the report, there appears to be some fluff. In total, the Texans appear to have four players that they are paying attention to. They do, in fact, look poised for an upset with Tannehill likely done for the season.
