- According to Getlin, Mariota isn’t expected to play again this season.
- Mariota is scheduled to undergo further testing on Monday.
Following Sunday’s loss to the Patriots, Mariota told reporters that he didn’t belive this was a season-ending injury, and expected to be return this season.
However, it will be interesting to see if the Titans are willing to risk further injury to their young quarterback by putting him out there in meaningless games.
Mariota, 22, is in the first year of his four-year, $24.214 million rookie contract that’s fully guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $435,000 this season to go along with $1,535,635 om 2016.
Entering today’s game, Mariota had thrown for 2,786 yards while completing 62.2 percent of his passes to go along with 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 20 quarterback out of 37 qualifying players.
