NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) will "try to play" against the Texans today. Mariota is reportedly dealing with a pinched nerve in that elbow and still hasn't regained complete feeling in his fingers. "There is no telling how he’ll respond," Rapoport adds. "That’s why Blaine Gabbert is expected to rotate in." This remains a situation to stay far away from in Week 2 fantasy lineups. And it has Corey Davis looking like a risky WR3 play.
The Titans have promoted TEs coach Arthur Smith to OC. Smith has been with Tennessee for 8 years, starting as a defensive assistant before moving to the other side of the ball. The Titans are aiming for continuity from the departed Matt LaFleur's scheme, but Smith is a complete unknown as a play-caller.
Titans QB Marcus Mariota (stinger) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Colts. Blaine Gabbert gets the start in a win-or-go-home situation. What a world.
Titans QB Marcus Mariota (stinger) is not expected to play against the Colts tonight, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports. Mariota is listed as questionable and is expected to work out pregame before a final decision is made. But an independent spine specialist has reportedly warned the Titans that further damage to Mariota's nerve could impact his ability to throw long term. So it looks like it'll be Blaine Gabbert under center for tonight's must-win game. Expect a whole bunch of RB Derrick Henry when Tennessee has the ball.
Titans QB Marcus Mariota (stinger) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Colts. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and will likely be a game-time decision. If Mariota is unable to go, it’ll be Blaine Gabbert under center. Avoid this situation in Week 17 fantasy lineups.
Titans QB Marcus Mariota (elbow) returned to practice on Thursday. HC Mike Vrabel said afterward that Mariota was limited but called his day "encouraging." It looks like he has a shot to play in Sunday night's win-or-go-home game against the Colts. We'll get another update tomorrow.
