Marcus Mariota dealing with sore shoulder, mild ankle sprain

Marcus Mariota

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota sure does have a hard time staying healthy. After missing a game earlier in the year with a hamstring injury, Mariota is now dealing with a sore shoulder and mild ankle sprain.

Thankfully, it doesn’t appear these injuries will keep Mariota from suiting up again in Week 11.

That said, he’s already banged up, and Tennessee’s game this week is on short rest. It’s also on the road against a very tough Pittsburgh Steelers defense that’s been getting to the quarterback with regularity (29 sacks, tie for second in the NFL).

Needless to say, both Mariota and the Titans will have to be careful monitoring his health in this upcoming game.

The Titans, at 6-3, are tied with Jacksonville atop the AFC South. But the team’s success very much depends on its quarterback staying healthy. Behind Mariota, Matt Cassel and Brandon Weeden are about as threatening as a Golden Retriever pup.
