Marcus Mariota completed 6-of-8 passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' second preseason game against the Panthers.
Mariota played a pair of series, leading a field goal drive on the first before finishing the second off with a four-yard touchdown to Delanie Walker who was wide open on a corner route. Mariota's first pass was a 20-yard bullet on a deep in to rookie WR Taywan Taylor. On the next play, Mariota kept it on a read-option for a nine-yard run. Looking healthy off last year's broken fibula, Mariota has top-five fantasy QB upside with a now-loaded skill group. Aug 19 - 3:44 PM

Date:

Marcus Mariota will play in the Titans' preseason opener Saturday night.

It is not a surprise considering Mariota has been a full-go throughout camp, but it is a great indication he is fully healed from his December leg break. Mariota likely will not play many snaps, but coach Mike Mularkey said he wants the quarterback "to get his feet wet a little bit." With several shiny new weapons in the passing game, Mariota carries high-end upside from his QB12 ADP.

Marcus Mariota plans to play at 215 pounds this season.

Mariota came out of Oregon at 222 and is listed at that weight on the Titans' website. The team told him to bulk up to the 225-230 range this year, but Mariota instead opted to side with his personal trainer and instead cut weight. The thinking is that Mariota will be faster and more elusive to avoid hits, but 215 is borderline-fragile for an NFL quarterback and could make Mariota even more prone to injury if he does get squared up for a big hit by a defender. It will be interesting to see if the Titans force him to put on weight during camp.

According to Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone, Marcus Mariota (leg) has done "everything" the past two weeks.

Mariota has been limited throughout the offseason while recovering from a broken leg but it looks like he's finally back to 100 percent. Ten pounds lighter and equipped with the best receiving corps he's ever had, Mariota should be in for a breakout season. Fantasy owners have been drafting him in the QB7-12 range.

Marcus Mariota said trusting his leg is the final hurdle in his rehab.

Recovering from a broken leg, Mariota has seen work during OTAs and minicamp, but he will not be a full-go until training camp. "I think from a strength standpoint I'm good," Mariota said. "Now it's getting to the point of trusting myself to do it...So for me, that's my next step. For me, I've got to just go out and do it." As long as he remains setback free, Mariota has the look of an upside QB1.

Marcus Mariota (broken leg) will have no restrictions in training camp.

Mariota has begun taking full-team snaps in OTAs, and could maybe even play in a game were the season to begin today. Mariota needs to make it through a season healthy for 16 games, but his health won't be a concern this summer.
Jun 8 - 1:55 PM

Marcus Mariota (broken leg) has been taking part in some full-team drills at OTAs.

Marcus Mariota (leg) is participating at Titans OTAs and appears to be ahead of schedule.

Mariota fractured his fibula and ankle last December. "Four months ago I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to participate in OTAs, and being able to do some of the drills ... I was very happy and very grateful," he said. "It was fun to be out there with the guys." Mariota isn't moving at full speed yet, but he is taking part in walkthroughs, individual drills, and 7-on-7s. He is one of this year's highest-ceiling late-round quarterback picks.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey is trying to find ways to get Marcus Mariota (leg) on the field for OTAs.

Mariota isn't able to run at full speed yet but Mularkey still wants him to get reps so he can build chemistry with some of the team's newcomers including first-round pick Corey Davis. One way the Titans can accomplish that is by using Mariota in 7-on-7 drills. "That’s one way to be able to do it without a rush in his face and having to move," said Mularkey. "We’re working on other ways to get the work done." Mariota is still on track for Week 1.
May 14 - 11:26 AM

Titans.com’s Jim Wyatt wouldn’t rule out Marcus Mariota (leg) sitting the entire preseason.

This is speculative with Mariota still in the early stages of his recovery, but the Titans have said they aren’t going to rush him. Assuming he’s healthy, it would be surprising if Mariota didn't get live reps with rookie additions Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor, and Jonnu Smith. Mariota’s Week 1 status isn’t in doubt.

May 12 - 4:34 PM

Speaking on 104.5 The Zone, Marcus Mariota (broken leg) said he is "probably a week or two away from full on running."

Mariota has been very open about his rehab to this point, and it appears to be going as planned. The quarterback is unlikely to get in any work during the offseason program, but he could be fully ready to go by training camp. After the Titans added several weapons in the draft, Mariota could be in for a career year.
May 4 - 10:23 AM

Marcus Mariota (broken leg) hopes to resume running in 2-3 weeks.

In an interview with KHON2 Honolulu, Marcus Mariota (broken leg) was shown walking normally and running on the beach.

Forced to use a scooter to get around just a month ago, Mariota seems to be progressing quickly in his recovery from a broken fibula. "This process has been really good," Mariota said. "I’m in a good spot." The Titans are going to take it slow with their franchise quarterback, but he will likely be ready for training camp.
