Tennessee Titans left guard Byron Bell will miss the entire 2016 season due to an ankle injury, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Bell, 27, dislocated his ankle during his team’s first OTA on Tuesday. He was the favorite to win Tennessee’s starting job, which will now likely come down to Quinton Spain, Jeremiah Poutasi and rookie Sebastian Tretola.
Bell was entering his second season with the Titans, for whom he started all 16 games in 2015. In his five NFL seasons, Bell has started 72 of the 78 games he has played in.
He was originally signed by the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2011.
Bell played college football at the University of New Mexico.
