Titans QB Marcus Mariota Played Through Knee Injury

Titans HC Mike Mularkey told reporters after Sunday’s game that QB Marcus Mariota played through a injured knee that he suffered early on in the game, per Jim Wyatt.

If Mariota ends up missing any time, the Titans would turn to Matt Cassel at quarterback with Brandon Weeden operating his backup.

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.

In 2017, Mariota has appeared in 11 games and thrown for 2,423 yards while completing 63.2 percent of his passes to go along with 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He has also rushed for 213 yards and five touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 10 quarterback out of 38 qualifying players.

We’ll have more regarding Mariota’s injury as the news is available.
