Titans’ Marcus Mariota ‘day-to-day’ with hamstring strain
Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is day-to-day after leaving Sunday’s 54-17 loss after halftime with a hamstring injury.
“He did have an MRI, and there is a strain of the hamstring,” coach Mike Mularkey said Monday in a press conference. “We will right now take it day-to-day. He’s a pretty fast healer.”
Mariota may have avoided a major injury, but Mularkey mentioned that the team is looking into adding another quarterback to its roster this week, which doesn’t necessarily bode well for Mariota’s status Sunday against the Dolphins.
Even when healthy, Mariota has struggled this season, completing just 60 percent of his passes. The dual-threat quarterback has thrown three touchdowns and rushed for three more scores, but he also has a 79.8 QB rating this season.
Mularkey said Matt Cassel, who came in for Mariota on Sunday, will take some first-team reps in practice this week. He will likely start if Mariota is unable to play.
