Marcus Mariota suffers fractured fibula in Titans' loss


Marcus Mariota suffered a fractured fibula in the third quarter of Saturday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, coach Mike Mularkey told reporters. He is out for the remainder of the season and will undergo surgery in the coming days

The Tennessee Titans quarterback had an air cast placed on his right leg after his foot was bent awkwardly on a sack by Jags defensive lineman Sheldon Day.

Mariota was carted off the field and immediately ruled out. Matt Cassel took over under center.

Mariota struggled before the injury, completing 8 of 20 passes for 99 yards and a touchdown. The Titans quarterback couldn't connect deep and was off target early as Tennessee dug itself a big hole.

The Titans were eliminated from playoff contention Saturday night when the Texans beat the Bengals.
