Marcus Mariota wants to play, will be a game-time decision

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota wants to play this weekend, but his coach wants to wait to make that determination.

Via Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website, Mariota said Friday he wants to play Sunday against the the Dolphins, but it will depend on his rehab from a hamstring injury.

Mariota had to leave last week’s loss to the Texans, and has been limited in practice this week. The Titans also signed Brandon Weeden this week as insurance.

Coach Mike Mularkey said that Mariota would be a game-time decision, which means he’ll have the questionable tag when the official injury report comes out later this afternoon.

  1. When a big part of your game is using your legs, I wouldn’t step foot on the field until I was 100%.

    They have 12 more games, you have to be smart and think long term here.

  2. 22 has it correct. His long term career could be at risk, hamstrings are very unpredictably, best to be very careful. Bill

  3. it doesnt matter our d is gonna make cutler look like tom brady anyways until jr uses like 3 drafts all defense we aint gonna beat luck watson or whatever qb jax drafts…i get so sick of watchin our defense get shredded every week not evem worth watching anymore and not cuz the anthem bs

  4. Mariota, probably wants to shed his rep as a fragile quaterback, if he’s practicing he will play. As a dolphin fan i hope he stays in the pocket.

  5. phinatic1 it’s just some fans who say he’s a fragile quarterback…which is absolutely nonsense. Illegal helmet hits to the knee & an opposing player falling on your leg & breaking it do not make you “fragile”. Just ask Ben R (several mcl strains”) & Derek Carr. And as much as you hope it, if Marcus plays he will not stay in the pocket!
