Titans QB Marcus Mariota to Have Surgery on Wednesday

Marcus Mariota

It was a tough ending for the season for Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, as coach Mike Mularkey said Monday Mariota will have surgery to repair his fractured right fibula on Wednesday in Charlotte and miss four to five months.

Dr. Robert Anderson will perform the procedure, which entails placing a plate on the bone to provide stability. The Titans hope he returns in time for OTAs.

“I’m thinking that, because they start end of May, middle of May, go through June,” Mularkey said, “so at least he’ll be a part of some of the OTAs, I would think, but everybody’s different. Every player’s recovery and pain tolerance, again I can’t speak for Marcus, but we’ll see how it goes with him.”

The 23-year-old had a great season for the Titans, throwing 23 touchdowns and just nine interceptions to go along with 3,426 yards. He gives the Titans plenty of hope for the future, and here’s hoping the surgery goes well and this setback isn’t one that will effect him more than just the time it takes to recover.

What if the Titans Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Titans will look like made in the likeness of Trump!

Titans Hang On for 27-21 Win Over the Bears in Chicago

Tennesee Titans v Chicago Bears

Marcus Mariota threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns, and the Titans hung on to beat the depleted Bears 27-21 on Sunday.

The Titans (6-6) gave their playoff hopes a boost, though they watched as Chicago (2-9) cut a 20-point lead to six in the fourth quarter.

Matt Barkley, starting for the injured Jay Cutler, led the late surge. The Bears had a first down at the Tennessee 7 in the final minute when Josh Bellamy dropped a pass in the end zone on first down. Barkley’s next three attempts fell incomplete, preserving the win for Tennessee.

The Titans moved one game out of first place in the AFC South.

Mariota, putting together one of the best seasons ever by a Titans quarterback, came through with another solid performance. The second-year pro completed 15 of 23 passes.
