Titans QB Marcus Mariota Questionable for Sunday's Game vs. Colts


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota practiced for the second straight day on Friday as the team continued preparations for Sunday's game vs. the Colts.

Coach Mike Vrabel described Mariota's work as limited, however, and said the team will have further discussions on who will start at quarterback.

Mariota missed practice on Wednesday after suffering a stinger on Saturday against the Redskins.

Mariota is listed on the team's Injury Report with neck and foot injuries. He's listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

"About the same as it was yesterday," Vrabel said of Mariota. "(He was) limited, and we gave him some stuff to do, and he did some stuff. So we'll kind of just keep seeing where it goes, and figure out who gives us the best chance, and how he feels. We want to make sure he can go out there and do his job at a high level."

Quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Austin Davis also practiced again on Friday. Vrabel said there's a scenario where the Titans keep all three quarterbacks active for Sunday's game.

The Titans, winners of four straight, need a win to advance into the playoffs.

Mariota suffered the injury late in the first half of Saturday's game vs. the Redskins, and he did not return.

Gabbert stepped in for Mariota, and guided the Titans to a 25-16 win. Mariota said Wednesday he believes he is capable of performing well even if he misses practice time during the week.

"When you talk about injuries, whether it be for any player, it's: Can they make it worse? And can they protect themselves in the game?," Vrabel said.
