Marcus Mariota (broken leg) has transitioned from using a scooter to a walking boot.

It's been over two months since Mariota went down. Two months was when Mariota was expected to be able to put weight on his leg, so he's on schedule. Mariota appears likely to miss most, if not all, of the offseason program, but should be ready for training camp.
Feb 28 - 7:12 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey assured Wednesday that Marcus Mariota's (broken fibula) rehab is "doing very well."

The Titans plan to hold Mariota out of OTAs, an approach confirmed when GM Jon Robinson stated the "most important thing this offseason is to make sure Marcus Mariota is healthy." The Titans remain pleased with Mariota's rehab, which he is currently doing in Oregon. He should be 100 percent well before training camp. Adding to Mariota's weapons should also be a Titans priority.
Feb 22 - 9:01 PM

Coach Mike Mularkey said Marcus Mariota (broken fibula) is not expected to be ready for OTAs.

In January, Mularkey said Mariota would be back "when we get this thing rolling," but the coach said they are going to be "over-cautious" with the injury in a radio interview on Wednesday. "He’s on schedule," Mularkey said. "You guys know Marcus like I do. He’s probably gonna over-train to come back as quickly as he can, and we’re probably gonna have to put the reins on him to hold back a little bit." Despite the caution, Mariota should be ready for training camp.
Feb 16 - 12:10 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Marcus Mariota (broken leg) is "on track" and "doing great."

"He should be back when we get this thing rolling," Mularkey added. It is not clear if things get "rolling" in OTAs or training camp, but there is no doubt Mariota will be ready for Week 1. Coming off a breakout season, Mariota should be able to take another step forward in 2017 if the Titans can surround him with one or two more weapons.
Jan 19 - 10:11 AM

Marcus Mariota will require the assistance of a "knee walker/scooter" for the next two months.

Mariota can't put any weight on his broken leg for eight weeks. Once he can, the real rehab will begin. Mariota could miss the entire offseason program, but barring a setback, will be ready for training camp.
Jan 2 - 2:38 PM

Marcus Mariota's recovery timetable will be 4-5 months following surgery to repair his fractured fibula/ankle.

He's having surgery Wednesday in Charlotte with Dr. Robert Anderson. The procedure will involve a plate being inserted into Mariota's leg. Mariota will almost certainly miss the Titans' entire offseason program, but he should be ready to go for training camp. The Titans need to get him another weapon this offseason, but Mariota will enter 2017 as a top-12 fantasy quarterback.

Marcus Mariota has a fractured right fibula/ankle and is done for the season.

The Titans' season is over following Sunday's blowout loss to Jacksonville, and Matt Cassel will take them home in Week 17 against the Texans. Although Mariota finished poorly, he took an expected step forward as a second-year quarterback and has an extremely bright future. Although Mariota seems likely to miss OTAs, we suspect he'll be ready for 2017 training camp.

Marcus Mariota was carted off the field with a right ankle injury in the Titans' Week 16 game against the Jaguars.

Mariota's ankle got bent awkwardly on a sack by Jaguars DT Sheldon Day. Mariota was immediately fitted for an air cast and looks to have a severe injury. The Titans will turn to Matt Cassel at quarterback for the remainder of Sunday's game. Mariota finished 8-of-20 passing for 99 yards and a touchdown with three rushing yards before leaving the field.

Marcus Mariota completed 19-of-33 passes for 241 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the Titans' 19-17, Week 15 win over the Chiefs.

Mariota didn't do much in this one, but he made a few plays when the Titans needed them. He had a pair of long hookups to Rishard Matthews, who finished with a 4-105 line. Matthews lost a fumble heading into the end zone in the first half on one of those long pass plays, but he came back with another big gainer on a flea-flicker from Mariota. Mariota also lost a fumble and threw an interception, both in Titans territory. Tennessee was able to overcome it all with the Chiefs going into a second-half shell and blowing a two-touchdown lead. Kicker Ryan Succop drilled the game-winning 53-yard field goal as time expired. He was given a second chance after Andy Reid tried to ice him on the first one, which fell short. The Titans' playoff hopes live on, as they move to 8-6 ahead of a Week 16 road game with the lowly Jaguars.

Marcus Mariota said he is ready for the cold conditions projected at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

The game is forecasted for a high of 19 degrees, which Mariota thinks would be the coldest game he has ever played in. "I’ll be ready, I’ll be ready," Mariota said. "I’m looking forward to it, it’s going to be a fun atmosphere, and I can’t wait to do it." The Hawaii native might not be accustomed to the cold, but he is a good fantasy bet against a defense which has been surprisingly forgiving to opposing quarterbacks this season and has given up the second-most rushing yards to the position.

Marcus Mariota completed just 6-of-20 passes for 88 yards in the Titans' Week 14 win over the Broncos.

He added 38 rushing yards on eight scrambles. Predictably, Mariota was unable to do much through the air against this elite pass defense, but he did pick up a few big gains on read-option keepers. He also had a touchdown to Rishard Matthews taken off the board due to a pick-play penalty on Delanie Walker at the goal line. Mariota gets another tough test next week at Kansas City.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 07:04:00 PM

Marcus Mariota completed 15-of-23 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns in Tennessee's Week 12 win over Chicago.

Mariota had one of his better rushing games, adding 46 yards on four carries. He threw his touchdowns to Delanie Walker in the red-zone and on a 20-plus yarder to Rishard Matthews to end the first half. The Titans ran a conservative game script after that, settling for two field goals on fourth and shorts. They almost lost on a last-minute drive but were bailed out on a dropped TD. Mariota hasn't had a turnover since Week 9 and has multiple touchdown passes in eight straight weeks. He'll have his first tough matchup in awhile against Denver when the Titans come out of their bye.

Marcus Mariota completed 25-of-38 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns in Week 11 against the Colts.

He added five carries for 29 yards. Mariota started off slow, but got things going after a touchdown to DeMarco Murray at the end of the first half. He hit a wide open play action to Tajae Sharpe for a 34-yard TD for his second score. Mariota could have had a bigger game, but penalties cost Tennessee a chance to tie it in the fourth quarter. Mariota has now went seven straight weeks with multiple TD passes. He'll be a high-upside QB1 for Week 12.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 04:29:00 PM

Since entering the league in 2015, Marcus Mariota has never thrown a red-zone interception.

He's thrown for 30 touchdowns in the red zone with a ridiculous 116.3 quarterback rating and an equally marvelous 65.4 completion percentage. Mariota has already asserted himself as one of the game's best finishers and has fumbled just once while taking two sacks inside the red zone. Mariota will be a top-five quarterback option against the Colts this week.
