The Tennessee Titans’ offensive line took a big blow on Tuesday when Byron Bell went down with a dislocated ankle. It was reported that the injury happened during a non-contact drill during OTAs and he will miss the entire 2016 season.
Bell was helped off the field after the injury. Head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed that he would miss the season.
Mularkey says Byron Bell will likely miss the season with left ankle injury: "He's a good football player. We're going to miss him."

Bell started all 16 games for the Titans at tackle last year, but with the arrival of first-round selection Jack Conklin, that was expected to change. He was likely going to move to guard or become an experienced reserve.
Byron Bell joined the Titans ahead of the 2015 season after spending four seasons with the Carolina Panthers. He was a pretty good player for the team and his absence could hurt them down the line this year.
