Marc Mariani to spend second straight season on injured reserve

Marc Mariani, Jason McCourty AP

As a rookie, Marc Mariani was one of the best stories in the NFL. A little-known prospect who caught the Titans’ attention while he was a college teammate of coach Jeff Fisher’s son at Montana, Mariani went from a seventh-round pick to a Pro Bowl return man.

Unfortunately, Mariani is now a sad story in the NFL: He missed all of last season after suffering a Theismannesque broken leg, and now he’s going to miss all of this year, too.

The Titans are placing Mariani on season-ending injured reserve, meaning he will miss his second consecutive year.

This is the final year of Mariani’s contract, so he will be a free agent in March, and can try to pick up his once-promising career somewhere.

    Article doesnt say why this year – related to the same injury or did something else happen to him?

    the injury is unrelated to last year, this one involves his shoulder. Munchak said last week he could practice in 10 days or so.

    Mind boggling why they shelved him for an entire year, let alone in the final year of his deal.

    I’m sure Marc is not happy to hear about this.
