Titans LT Taylor Lewan tweets 'I’m alright' after 'MNF' injury scare

The Tennessee Titans improved to 4-2 on the campaign via a thrilling 34-31 "Monday Night Football" victory over the Buffalo Bills that included left tackle Taylor Lewan being carted off the field in the second quarter. The frightening scene followed several scary minutes of Lewan requiring medical attention after his head appeared to collide with an opponent on a red-zone run play. 

Lewan ultimately offered a thumbs-up before he was transported into the tunnel, and ESPN's Turron Davenport later noted the three-time Pro Bowl selection had movement in all of his extremities and was in the NFL's concussion protocol.

Lewan took to Twitter Tuesday to offer an update on his condition: 

According to Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk, Titans head coach Mike Vrabel told reporters he saw Lewan on Tuesday morning. 

"I would say all signs lead to him being in the concussion protocol," Vrabel said of the 30-year-old. "I’d say he’s doing as well as he could be." 

Kendall Lamm replaced Lewan on Monday night and largely impressed.

Lewan's status ahead of this coming Sunday's game against the 3-3 Kansas City Chiefs is understandably up in the air, but his tweet is a positive update considering the potentially serious nature of such an injury.
