Mariota suffered the hamstring injury on his second-quarter touchdown run in the Titans' 57-14 loss to the Texans on Sunday. As the Tennessee Titans wrestle with the uncertainty surrounding the quarterback position, both now and long term, they have reportedly made a decision to sign Brandon Weeden.
The Titans didn't include Colin Kaepernick or Robert Griffin III in their workout despite their fit as a mobile quarterback similar to Mariota. Should Mariota miss any time, the team's attack will take on a very different shape while being run by a 35-year old backup quarterback in Matt Cassel, who has as many rushing touchdowns (5) in his 13-year National Football League career as Mariota in less than three full seasons as a pro. The veteran had joined Houston's squad in 2015 and filled in for then-starter Brian Hoyer, but saw his playing time diminish as third-string quarterback behind Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage. To make room on the roste they waived linebacker Josh Carraway. He started 20 games in Cleveland, going 5-15 while throwing more interceptions than touchdowns. He also returned punts and kicks at the school.
