Mariota suffered a fractured right fibula in Week 16 of the 2016 season. It was surgically repaired in the offseason. Mariota expects to be ready for training camp, but Jim Wyatt of the official team site said it is to be determined whether Mariota will play in the preseason.

Summary

Building on an impressive rookie season where he played behind a limited offensive line and receiving corps, the Titans made improvements that helped Mariota become a more efficient passer. Mariota's yards per game dropped from 234 in 2015 to 228 in 2016, but his rate of passing touchdowns increased to 1.7 per game, and his interception totals dropped from 10 to 9 despite playing 3 additional games. Credit for these improvements also goes to the bolstered the offensive line and the ground game. The Titans got strong production from rookie tackle Jack Conklin and free agent running back DeMarco Murray. Rookie runner Derrick Henry also looked formidable in a part-time role. The result was power offense with a dangerous play-action component that also featured set looks for Mariota's running ability and helped him become highly productive in the red zone. The Titans have developed a framework that should allow Mariota to grow into a productive quarterback rather than expect him to carry the offense immediately. Mariota was the No.13 quarterback last year; expect a similar result this year. (May 25)

Titans | Corey Davis headed for 1,000 yards? (Fri Jun 9, 09:40 PM) - Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis has the tools to become the No. 1 target for QB Marcus Mariota this season, according to NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt, and Brandt believes Davis could become the first Tennessee receiver to top 1,000 yards since 2013.

Our View: Davis certainly has the ability to take on a heavy target load. He had outstanding four-year production in college at Western Michigan, finishing his college career as the all-time leader in receiving yards (5,285) at the FBS level. He's a crisp route-runner who plays with elite concentration. Expect the top-5 pick to quickly become a favorite of QB Marcus Mariota.
