Two of the Tennessee Titans’ quarterbacks will be on the sidelines Thursday night for their Week 17 matchup.

Josh Dobbs Due to a recent ankle injury, veteran starter Ryan Tannehill was already out, and rookie quarterback Malik Willis is now also expected to miss the game against the Dallas Cowboys.

According to a CBS Sports report, quarterback Joshua Dobbs, whom the team just signed, will start.

The draft pick in the sixth round has never started an NFL game.

DERRICK HENRY Far-fetched TO PLAY Versus COWBOYS; The Titans selected Willis in the third round of this year’s draft. TITANS REMAIN CAUTIOUS WITH A MORE IMPORTANT WEEK 18 MATCHUP. When Tannehill was hurt this season, the former Liberty University star has already started a few games.

Willis has not quite demonstrated to the franchise that he is prepared to assume the role of starter in the future, with a record of 1-2 as a starter.

After graduating from college, Willis was regarded as a project, and he still needs to improve as a passer. At the collegiate level, the rookie ran extremely well.

Dobbs joined the NFL in 2017 and began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has mostly played as a journeyman since then, mostly as a backup for the Jaguars, Browns, and Lions. In 2020, he did return to the Steelers. 

Dobbs has completed 10 passes for 45 yards and one interception in his career.

Tennessee can still make the playoffs if they lose Thursday’s game. The winner of the AFC South will be determined by the outcome of the Titans’ Week 18 matchup with the Jaguars.
