    Titans guard Andy Levitre has become quite familiar with the operating room over the last couple of years and he added another entry to his medical records on Thursday.

    Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that Levitre had his appendix removed this week and that he will miss a couple of weeks of camp while he recovers from the procedure. Per Wyatt, Levitre began having discomfort on Wednesday and doctors determined that he needed laparoscopic surgery to remove the offending appendix.

    Levitre had knee surgery before camp last year and hip surgery after the year was out, although he didn’t wind up missing any games during the regular season. The hip surgery did limit Levitre during the offseason program, however, so he will be a bit behind in terms of preparation for the coming season once he is able to return to practice.

    The Titans report to camp on Friday and have their first practice of the summer on Saturday.

    That's the plan. Chris Spencer is also getting extra work at LG now.

    This isn't something you can really plan or fake. This can hit you over night. I had mine removed when I was nine and it sucked. Probably the worst pain I have ever felt. Couldn't walk and had to drag myself to my parents room. I don't see him being ready to practice in two weeks though. Two weeks is just enough time for the stitches to start falling out. I could see him in full participation about a week before the season.
