Marcus Mariota out for the season with sprained MCL

-

Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota has a sprained right MCL and will miss the final two weeks of the season, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

Mariota suffered the injury in the first half of the Titans’ 33-16 loss to the New England Patriots yesterday. He had thrown for just 32 yards while throwing completing 3 of 6 passes and has thrown for 2,818 yards and 19 touchdowns while rushing for 242 yards and two scores his rookie season.

Tennessee will now turn to second-year man Zach Mettenberger for the final two weeks of another lost season. The Titans are 3-11 on the year and fired Ken Whisenhunt as head coach back in November after a 1-6 start. Mike Mularkey has since served on an interim basis.

But the bigger concern here is Mariota’s health, as he also missed two games earlier this season with the initial MCL injury. It hasn’t appeared to affect him since then, but here’s hoping that his latest injury isn’t the start of an injury-riddled career.
