Titans QB Marcus Mariota to Start vs. Colts

Posted Oct 16, 2017

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is active and scheduled to start tonight’s game against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – As a youngster, Marcus Mariota used to dream about playing on Monday Night Football.

He’s going to get his chance -- Mariota is active and scheduled to start tonight’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, barring a setback in pregame warmups.

Mariota practiced every day leading up to the game, and on Saturday was listed as questionable on the Injury Report.

But Mariota, inactive last Sunday in Miami because of a hamstring injury, made progress throughout the week, and team feels comfortable with his physical condition.

“Growing up it was a dream of mine to play on Monday night,” Mariota said last week. “Hopefully I’ll get that opportunity on Monday and go out there and make the most of it.”

Mariota was also limited in practices leading up to the Dolphins game due to the hamstring injury he suffered against the Texans, and the team elected to hold him out.

The Titans watched him closely during the week, limiting him in practices.

“It is going to come down to a lot of things,” Titans coach Mike Mularkey said after Friday’s practice. “It might be a game-time decision. Can he play and not risk himself further injury? That’s the biggest thing.”

On the season, Mariota has completed 66-of-110 passes for 792 yards, with three touchdowns and three interceptions.

Jacoby Brissett is scheduled to start at quarterback on Monday for the Colts, in place of Andrew Luck.
