Titans QB Marcus Mariota Expected to Start on Monday Night vs. Texans


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was a full participant in Friday's practice and he's expected to start on Monday against the Texans.

Mariota was limited the previous two days after suffering a stinger against the Colts. Mariota appears on the Injury Report with a 'neck' injury.

"He felt better," Titans coach Mike Vrabel said. "… It looked good today, but that's why you practice. You try to always improve and get better.

"I would imagine that Marcus is going to be the starting quarterback after being not limited, and full, and probably hope to start."

Mariota suffered a stinger in the first half of Sunday's loss to the Colts, and did not return to action. Mariota, said earlier in the week he was working through some numbness in his right arm as a result of the stinger.

Mariota said the injury isn't related to the elbow injury he suffered earlier in the season, although the symptoms are similar. Mariota was not wearing a glove on his right hand again on Friday.

"He was limited the first two days of practice and today he was out there throwing," Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur said of Mariota. "To be honest with you, I could not tell that anything was wrong. He looked good to me. … He was full-go, took all the reps, and he is ready to roll."
