Wednesday Headlines: Will Levis NFL Debut and Kentucky Basketball Media Day

It’s Will Levis time in Tennessee (maybe)!

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning BBN!

It’s finally (maybe) Will time in Nashville. After Tennessee Titans’ QB Ryan Tannehill suffered an ankle injury last Sunday, Malik Willis came in to close out the game.

This led everyone to believe that Malik would be the guy if Tannehill can’t go after the bye week.

Well, that’s partly the case, per Adam Schefter:

The Titans' strategy seems to be all over the place. Playing a two-QB system in the NFL is something we hardly ever see, but this will be Will Levis’ first opportunity to get on the field during an NFL regular season game.

The offseason was pretty rough for Will. Starting with the embarrassment at the NFL Draft and then falling to QB3 before the season started.

But now that the opportunity seems to be there, it will be time for Will to step up and take it. Good luck to the former Kentucky Wildcats QB!

Elsewhere, back in Levis’ old Kentucky home, it’s Kentucky Basketball Media Day, as John Calipari will be meeting with the media at 2 pm ET today, followed by player interviews.

Of course, the big focus will be on Kentucky’s injured big men. Aaron Bradshaw and Ugonna Onyenso both suffered injuries earlier this year that led to surgery, and the hope is one or both will be back by late November.

And then there’s Zvonimir Ivisic, who did not make his UK debut last week due to what Calipari called soreness from practicing for the first time after his long layoff due to academic issues.

Will Big Z play on Friday vs. Georgetown College? Hopefully, we get a definitive word on his status today.
