The Titans have had high hopes since they drafted Marcus Mariota in 2014. He was the first college athlete to win the Hiesman trophy at the University of Oregon. During his second season with the Tennessee Titans he completed 276 of 451 passes, for a total of 3,426 yards and 26 touchdowns. The season ended abruptly for Mariota when he sustained a fractured fibula in the December loss to the Jaguars. According to head coach Mike Mularkey, “Mariota is still in a boot but is putting more weight on the injured leg with each day”. The main goal for the Titans is to have a healthy Marcus Mariota under center in week 1 of the 2017 season, where they have a real chance to end the 10-year playoff drought.
