As Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota continues to regain feeling in his hand, the Titans will reportedly turn to Blaine Gabbert to start on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Titans remain hopeful that Mariota will regain feeling and be able to grip a football as soon as possible. For now, his elbow injury is likely to sideline him for another week.

Mariota’s injury does open the door for Gabbert to get revenge against the Jaguars. Unfortunately for him, Jacksonville’s defense is arguably the best in the league and especially stout versus the pass.

The 28-year-old has 45 touchdown passes, 44 interceptions and a 55.9 completion percentage in 50 career games. This could quickly turn into an ugly game for Tennessee’s quarterback and its offense.
