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.

    The Titans have no hope for the future. They will mess it up like they always have and always will.

    You can take the Oilers out of Houston, but you will never take the Oilers out of the Titans!

    What a tough way for Mariota’s season to end.
