  Titans | Marcus Mariota working with receivers    Sat Apr 13, 01:17 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been working out and having throwing sessions with at least six of the team's pass catchers this past week leading up to the start of the offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: Mariota is in a bit of a make-or-break season with the Titans. He's playing on his fifth-year option with the Titans and this is the final year of his deal. If he stays healthy and performs up to expectations, the Titans would likely sign him to a big-money long-term deal.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota was sacked 47 times last season - tied for 10th most in the NFL. The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt theorizes that the Titans will address the offensive line this offseason - whether that's through free agency or the draft - to help fix said issue.

  Titans | No surgery plans for Marcus Mariota    Mon Dec 31, 03:02 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck) is not expected to need surgery to address the nerve issues that have plagued him recently.

Footballguys view: Nerve issues can be tricky to deal with and we know the Titans are going to be cautious with their franchise quarterback. We'll know more about Mariota's availability for offseason workouts later in the spring but there doesn't seem to be any need for him to miss those given no surgery is needed.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota unlikely to play    Sun Dec 30, 09:21 AM

Contrary to a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot) is not expected play in Week 17's game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a nerve condition caused by a stinger, according to multiple sources familiar with his injury. An independent nerve specialist reportedly told the Titans that further damage could jeopardize Mariota's ability to throw the football beyond this weekend.

Footballguys view: The Titans will be depending on Blaine Gabbert, which makes the Indy defense a good Week 17 play. The Colts still have a chance to host a playoff game if they win and the Jaguars upset the Texans.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota questionable for finale    Fri Dec 28, 06:00 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 28 and he is listed as questionable for the Week 17 showdown with the Indianapolis Colts. If he cannot start it would be QB Blaine Gabbert under center.

Footballguys view: We expect Mariota to play, but the risk of him being limited by the injury or knocked out of the game by an aggravation makes him a desperation play even in 2QB/Superflex leagues.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota officially limited    Thu Dec 27, 04:34 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 27.

Footballguys view: It looks like Mariota is going to give it a go on Sunday, but the potential for re-injury and a shortened game makes him too risky to play in Week 17.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota also has foot issue    Wed Dec 26, 04:17 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck, foot) is dealing with a foot ailment in addition to his neck stinger.

Footballguys view: Just what he needed; another injury. Mariota has struggled to stay healthy for most of this year and now he's trying to deal with two injuries with the playoffs on the line in a game against the Colts in Week 17. They say Mariota does not have to practice this week in order to play on Sunday.

  Titans | Marcua Mariota could play    Wed Dec 26, 03:20 PM

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck) could still play even if he doesn't practice this week. Mariota is dealing with a stinger he suffered in Week 16.

Footballguys view: The Titans are going to play this as close to the vest as they can all week long. We wouldn't be surprised to hear that Mariota is going to be labeled a 'game time decision' at some point during the week. They need him to play if he can in a game against the Colts with the playoffs on the line.

  Titans | No practice for Marcus Mariota    Wed Dec 26, 03:10 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (shoulder) was held out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.

Footballguys view: Mariota looks a little doubtful for the huge game against the Colts on Sunday. He's going to do his best to get out there, and the Titans need a win to secure a spot in the postseason.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota casts doubtful cloud    Wed Dec 26, 08:20 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck) said the stinger he suffered made his entire right side numb and tingly, and the team added a quarterback to the roster.

Footballguys view: Mariota's nerve issue has been bothering him for most of the season. He should be limited in practice all week long. The Titans take on the Colts in Week 17 with the playoffs on the line. A win against Indianapolis in Week 17 and they're in, either as the AFC South champion (if the Texans lose) or as the sixth seed.

  Titans | Austin Davis back in Tennessee    Mon Dec 24, 01:44 PM

Free-agent QB Austin Davis (Titans) signed an undisclosed contract to return to the Tennessee Titans on Monday, Dec. 24.

Footballguys view: The Titans are unsure of Marcus Mariota's status so they make a move to get more depth here. Davis backed up Blaine Gabbert earlier in the season when Mariota was injured.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota feeling better    Mon Dec 24, 11:49 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck) said he is feeling better than he previously did after his stinger.

Footballguys view: Good news for Mariota but it doesn't mean he's going to play in the regular season finale. We'll know more about his status later in the week. If the Titans win against Indianapolis in Week 17 they're in the playoffs, either as the AFC South champion (if the Texans lose) or as the sixth seed.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota has full practice    Thu Dec 20, 03:34 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (foot) was a full practice participant Thursday, Dec. 20.

Footballguys view: Good news for Mariota here..and for the Titans. For fantasy GMs? We don't see too many players starting Mariota this week. The Titans are running Derrick Henry early and often, so that doesn't leave a lot of room for Mariota and the passing game.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (foot) put in a full practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.

Footballguys view: Don't get too excited about Mariota's fantasy potential this week at home against Washington on Saturday. The offense is going to feature RB Derrick Henry as much as possible. That doesn't leave a lot for Mariota and the Titans passing game.

Footballguys view: Mariota wasn't really needed or effective in the downpour during Week 15. He's only a low ceiling QB2/Superflex against Washington next week.

  Titans | Minimal impact for Marcus Mariota    Fri Dec 7, 12:07 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 18 of his 24 passes for 162 yards, no touchdowns and an interception during the team's 21-point win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, Dec. 6. Mariota also ran four times for 13 yards.

Footballguys view: Mariota's interception was a terrible overthrow to a wide open receiver, and Derrick gave him few chances to finish drives with passes. He'll be a QB2/Superflex option next week against the Giants.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (neck) logged a full practice Friday, Nov. 23, and is expected to start in Week 12 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Mariota is still a dicey play on the road in primetime piloting an offense that lacked an identity. The Titans have already shown a willingness to play him at a compromised level of effectiveness over Blaine Gabbert this year. The Titans good games this year on offense have sporadic and isolated.

Footballguys view: We'll watch his status during the week of practice for the Titans. Mariota was ready in an emergency role in the second half of Sunday's loss against the Colts. This is the same injury that forced Mariota from the lineup for a couple of games earlier this year.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed 16-of-24 passes for 228 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the New England Patriots while running for 21 yards.

Footballguys view: Mariota was surgical early and gave way to Derrick Henry late. He is healthy now and his #1 receiver is playing like a #1. He'll be a viable streamer against the Colts next week and worth carrying as a backup if you have misgivings about your starter or their matchups down the stretch.

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota completed just 14-of-26 passes for 129 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills and he added two runs for 10 yards.

Footballguys view: The Bills defense was competitive at home, the Titans might have been tired after an overtime marathon, and the offense lost Taylor Lewan. No matter what it was, Mariota and the Titans offense lost some of the trust they gained heading into a matchup with Baltimore next week.
