Marcus Mariota unlikely to play Sunday

Marcus Mariota unlikely to play Sunday

Mariota will have to spread the ball around, especially if he's limited in his mobility, and will need a big game from Murray and back up running back Derek Henry to keep the pressure off.

Miami raced out to a 10-0 lead over Tennessee, with a Reshad Joens opening quarter 38-yard fumble return acting as the Dolphins first touchdown during the first half of any game this season. Mariota could be good to go as early as Week 6 if he's ultimately ruled inactive later today. With Kaepernick, Reese says, teams will feel an obligation to "adjust the offense for him to give him a chance".

Obviously, Cutler's not the sole reason for the Dolphins' offensive ineptitude - there are too many factors to list - but he's definitely not blameless.

Tennessee's potential to bounce back may hinge on Marcus Mariota's ability to do the same, as the gimpy quarterback is expected to be a game-time decision against Miami after injuring his hamstring in last week's 57-14 debacle versus Houston. The Titans have been involved in four high-scoring games so far and have scored 70 points combined in their two wins.

The Titans were the NFL's third-best rushing team in 2016, and they've dipped only slightly this season.

The king's reaction was "a mistake from every point of view", Turull said in an interview on the regional government's TV channel. The Catalan President stopped short of declaring independence from Spain Monday - a move that would further deepen the crisis.

But Cassel lost his most recent meeting with the Dolphins, a 31-3 rout in 2011 while playing for the Chiefs.

Marcus Mariota made 15 starts for the Titans last season, completing 61.2 percent of his passes and throwing for 3,426 yards, 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions. It was more than anxiety of, 'What are we actually going to do? He wasn't Aaron Rodgers, but Cassel did what he needed to do for the Titans to win the game. Without Mariota, the Titans would be without a quarterback who has to be accounted for both through the air and on the ground.

While the play here is on the Titans, the handicap is nearly all about the Dolphins.

"It's my job week in to week out to be prepared, be accountable, but the mental reps is one thing and also going into a game you never know when your opportunity's going to come up", Cassel said.

It's unlikely he'll ever see the field for the Titans, but if he does and he performs badly, many fans will be wondering if the team should have signed Kaepernick instead.
