KEY THURSDAY MEDIA UPDATES
***Mike Mularkey told reporters Marcus Mariota did not do much more in practice on Thursday than Wednesday and frequently reiterated the team would be "smart" in approaching his availability. Mariota has managed only stationary throws in individual drills. Mularkey said Mariota needed to show more mobility to ensure he could be effective and protecting himself in the pocket. Though the Titans have said Mariota could play without practicing, nothing about his practice participation over the past 48 hours suggests he'll be able to play this week. Consider him well to the doubtful side of questionable.
***The Packers have remained optimistic on Ty Montgomery since late last week. He's worn a protective vest in practice and Mike McCarthy said he looked good on Wednesday. However, I'm not sure I'm buying Montgomery's availability yet. Beat writers didn't see Montgomery in the media portion of practice, McCarthy said the team needed to continue to evaluate his progress, it's very likely Montgomery has more than one broken rib, and Green Bay's medical staff is known to lean conservative. Expect to see a limited Friday practice with little clarity through the weekend as we await the Schefter-Rapoport Sunday reporting.
