The Tennessee Titans have officially announced veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill as out for Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, meaning rookie Will Levis is officially set to make his second career start. In his NFL debut, Levis threw for 238 passing yards, 4 touchdowns and 0 interceptions to help stun the Falcons with a five-point loss.

Also ruled out for Tennessee has been starting right tackle Chris Hubbard (concussion) and second-year cornerback Roger McCreary (hamstring). Hubbard was forced from action last week in the second quarter against the Falcons, and in his absence elected to move left tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere over to right tackle and bring Andre Dillard off the bench to play at left tackle.

Dillard had just been benched in Week 7 following an abysmal start to his season, which could provide the Steelers’ pass rush a decent opportunity to get to the rookie quarterback, who took two sacks for 12 yards lost in his NFL debut.

Also notable is All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, officially listed as questionable with a toe injury. Hopkins was integral to Levis’
