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

Date:’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.

Marcus Mariota (leg) still isn't running at full speed.

Mariota is still recovering from a broken leg he suffered late last season. He appears to be making progress but the Titans aren't going to rush things with their franchise quarterback. There's no concern about Mariota's availability for Week 1.
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.

He was using a scooter to get around as recently as early March. Mariota will likely miss the entire offseason program, but is progressing on pace to be ready for training camp.
Apr 17 - 1:30 PM

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.

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.
