The Bills Defense Is Ruthlessly Ripping Titans’ Taylor Lewan On Twitter After They Beat Him In His Return From Suspension For Failed PED Test
Three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan made his NFL return on Sunday after serving a four game suspension for violating the NFL’s performing enhancing substances policy and failed a drug test for ostarine, a drug comparable to anabolic steroids.
The Buffalo Bills surging defense spoiled the Lewan’s welcome back party, leading the Bills to a 14-7 victory over the Titans in Nashville.
After the game, Bills defensive tackle Jordan Phillips, who had three sacks against Marcus Mariota on the day, relished ruining Lewan’s day:
“I was really happy Lewan came back today. I’m glad he could be a part of that today.”
Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson piled on, telling reporters after the game:
“We knew what his weakness was — he gives up inside moves and this was an inside game. He’s a fake tough guy. … He was quiet today,” Lawson said.
Lewan decided to direct his ire at Lawson and the former 19th overall pick’s modest stats thus far this year.
This pissed off a handful of Bills defenders, who voiced their displeasure in Lewan.
Lawson may have been taking his Fake Tough Guy moniker from ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit who referred to Lewan as “Pathetic” and a “Fake Tough Guy” on Twitter in 2016 following after Lewan recklessly launched himself into the pile head-first, committing a personal foul penalty and effectively losing the game for the Titans.
The Titans fell to 2-3 and currently reside in the basement of the AFC South, while the Bills improved to 4-1, which packs more punch than Twitter fingers ever could.
