Marcus Mariota missed another day of practice on Thursday.

Every game, all season

Mariota rehabbed his sprained MCL and watched backup quarterback Zach Mettenberger lead the Titans' workout.

Ken Whisenhunt told reporters he's pleased with Mariota's progress and would have a lot more information Friday on the rookie's playing status against the Falcons at home on Sunday.

Mariota was optimistic he'll be under center for Week 7 and said on Wednesday his knee is feeling better every day.

The No. 2 overall pick got off to a fast start, but he and the Titans' offense have struggled the last two weeks, scoring only a combined 23 points in losses to the Dolphins and Bills.
