Tennessee Titans 2021 fourth-round pick and outside linebacker Rashad Weaver is one of the player

the team needs to step up now that fellow outside linebacker Harold Landry is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Weaver’s 2021 campaign was cut short due to his own injury

but the Pitt product is fully healthy going into 2022, as evidenced by how dominant he looked during the preseason.

Upon learning of Landry’s injury, Weaver’s first concern was reaching out to the Pro Bowl outside linebacker to make sure he was OK.

After that, the second-year pro knew this could be a big opportunity for him.

While Weaver figures to be a big part of the solution, he won’t be the only one helping to fill the void.

Another major aspect of Landry’s game that will be missed is his ability to drop into coverage, something Weaver doesn’t figure to excel at.

“Every player is different,” Weaver said. “Everyone has their own skill set. Everyone knows that.

As head coach Mike Vrabel acknowledged, Weaver’s impressive offseason had already garnered him a role with this team.
