Rand Getlin of the NFL Network is reporting that Marcus Mariota suffered a knee sprain yesterday and is expected to miss the rest of the season:
I'm told #Titans QB Marcus Mariota suffered a sprained MCL yesterday and isn't expected to play again this season.— Rand Getlin (@Rand_Getlin) December 21, 2015
It is going to be tough to watch these last two games. The only thing worth watching for most of the season was Marcus Mariota. He had a special rookie season. I cannot wait to see what he can do when he actually has some talent around him.
If the report is true, Zach Mettenberger now gets a chance to showcase his skills. He played pretty well yesterday while wearing the Dan Marino facemask. This is his time to prove that he can be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
The Titans will now need to add another quarterback to the 53-man roster. Cutting Charlie Whitehurst might not have been the best idea looking back on it now.
