Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is out of the walking boot, and planning on being 100 percent by the time training camp starts.

Mariota told KHON2 in Hawaii that going home to work on his rehab (as well as doing part of the work in Oregon) has been beneficial to him as he recovers from last year’s broken leg.

“The opportunity to come home, to relax, to see family, to hang out with friends, to enjoy some of the sun and the beach, it really rejuvenates me,” Mariota said, via the Tennessean. “It gives me an opportunity to get healthy mentally along with getting healthy physically. With all the eyes and ears that I’ve kind of had around me, this process has been really good and I’m in a good spot.”

Mariota said his recovery from the Dec. 24 injury was a bit ahead of schedule, and that he’s been running on the beach.

He said he planned to return to Tennessee in late May, at which point he’ll decide if he’ll be able to take part in any of the OTAs.

  1. CAN’T WAIT! As much as everyone wants to upgrade defense and i do as well… getting mariota 2 huge weapons could keep him even healthier. I would love corey davis and oj howard both in the 1st round. Our offense of davis wr 1 matthews wr 2 sharpe wr 3…walker te 1…howars te 2…murray/henry/mariota with 1 of best olines in football qould be unstoppable.

  2. Great news, I feel like this is our year to break through and take the division. With the draft coming up, if JRob can pull some off magic like last year in the draft we will be giving Mariota a couple of new toys to play with on the outside. Go Blue!

  3. TN was SO CLOSE last year, but the Jags game was over just about as soon as it started. I hope they can fix some of the glaring weaknesses in the draft.
