“We are evaluating. Marcus is going to do everything he can to get ready, like every player is going to do,” Vrabel said, via ESPN.com. “I would anticipate both of those guys playing at some point and time.”
According to Vrabel, Mariota’s progress is “stagnant“ health-wise.
“I would say it is status quo,” Vrabel said. “I think it’s about stagnant as far as his improvement. It kind of is what it is.”
Mariota, 24, is a former No. 2 overall pick of the Titans back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $24.214 million rookie contract that’s fully guaranteed and is set to make a base salary of $2,636,270 to go along with another $3,736,905 next year.
The Titans picked up Mariota’s fifth-year option back in April worth $20.922 million for the 2019 season.
In 2018, Mariota has appeared in one game and completed 9 of 16 pass attempts (56.3 percent) for 103 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for 15 yards.
