Marcus Mariota 'absolutely' plans to play on Monday Night Football

Marcus Mariota 'absolutely' plans to play on Monday Night Football”

Mariota, inactive on Sunday in Miami because of a hamstring injury, still hasn't done a full sprint, according to Mularkey.

Mariota (hamstring) may be a game-time call Monday against the Colts, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports. They've done a great job and I'm feeling good. "It is a lot of games to be concerned about", Mularkey said after practice on Thursday, via the Titans' official website. "Making sure my dropbacks, everything, within the pocket are good and I can move around and make some of those plays that are required". "He's on track to do a little bit more tomorrow". The real key will be Mariota's mobility.

"He's got to be able to move around pretty good to be able to play, and not put himself in a position where he is going to reinjure himself", Mularkey told reporters Wednesday.

"The Titans certainly could use their starter back trying to snap a two-game skid". If not, though, the Titans will turn the offense over to Matt Cassel for the second game in a row.

Available in over 80 percent of Yahoo leagues, Brissett is averaging 18.43 points his last three games, which is a higher three-game average than Mariota has in any of his three games this season.

Cassel completed 21-of-32 passes for 141 yards against the Dolphins, with a touchdown and no interceptions.

Marcus Mariota said one of his childhood dreams was to play on Monday Night Football. It might be a game-time decision. Mariota and Mularkey said the quarterback is doing more in practice this week. You get ready and prepare and just go out and play ball. "Hopefully towards the end of the week I'll get more on my plate and hopefully I'll feel comfortable to try and play on Monday".
