Late in the first half of Saturday’s game between the Tennessee Titans and Washington Redskins, Marcus Mariota went down hard on a sack and was forced to exit the game.

The NFL Network broadcast showed Mariota heading into the locker room after suffering an apparent elbow injury.

Of course, this brought Blaine Gabbert into the game for Tennessee.

The injury occurred with under a minute remaining in the second quarter. Washington holds a 10-9 lead over the Titans at halftime.
