Tennessee Titans starting left guard Andy Levitre had his appendix removed on Thursday and could miss about two weeks as he recovers from the procedure.

The Titans report to camp Friday morning and hit the field for their first practice Saturday morning.

Tennessee has dealt with an offensive lineman and appendix surgery recently.

The team’s left tackle, Michael Roos, had his appendix removed on Monday Oct. 22, 2012, missed the team’s overtime home loss to Indianapolis the following Sunday and was back in the lineup for the next game.

In Levitre’s absence I expect reserve interior lineman Chris Spencer and rookie first-round tackle Taylor Lewan to see extra action at left guard.

Lewan will work primarily at left and right tackle, but the team looked at him a bit at guard during offseason workouts and is likely to do so again now.

Outside of Levitre, the Titans could be at full strength for their first practice.

Running back Shonn Greene missed the offseason after a second surgery on his knee but the team expects he returns ready. Defensive lineman Marcus Dixon also had a summer calf injury that should be resolved.
