Lingering knee issue hampering Levitre in Tennessee


A hip problem for safety Ed Reed helped vindicate the Ravens for not bringing him back. Under that standard, the Bills possibly deserve an attaboy, too.

Guard Andy Levitre, one of the few free agents who cashed in this year by jumping from Buffalo to Tennessee, has yet to join the Titans’ OTAs due to lingering problems with a knee on which arthroscopic surgery was performed in 2012.

“[The recovery] is going a little bit slower than I thought, but I don’t think it’s anything I have to worry about,” Levitre recently said, via John Glennon of the Tennessean. “It kind of stinks not being able to get out there and actually do the new playbook, but I’ll definitely be good for training camp.”

Still, when a guy gets $10.5 million to sign, a total of $13 million in the first year and $26 million over three, it’s fair to assume that he’s 100 percent. Levitre wasn’t, and now he’ll be missing important reps during his first offseason with the team.

Though he’s confident he won’t miss any important reps during his first training camp with the team, it’s fair to take a wait-and-see approach.
