Titans go get another QB, add Weeden with Mariota ailing

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota scored touchdowns on runs of 34 and two yards but suffered a hamstring injury on the second run that forced him out of the Titans 57-14 loss at Houston on Sunday

Despite optimism surrounding the injury, the Titans have exercised caution by signing another "quarterback" to the roster in the form of journeyman Brandon Weeden.

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Monday that Mariota is considered day-to-day with a hamstring strain, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone reports. Mularkey said there's a possibility the Titans won't know about Mariota's availability until late in the week, possibly as late as Sunday.

The good news is that Weeden probably will never even play a snap, with Mariota not expected to miss any more than one game, if that, and Matt Cassel the entrenched spot starter.

Weeden was the No. 22 overall pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2012 following a career with the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

4-2-3-1: Strongest probable lineup to defeat Crystal Palace
It's little wonder we're six games in and Palace still don't have a league goal to their name yet so far this season. The first came from an excellent cross from Ashley Young and Fellaini did very well to finish at the back post.

He last played in an National Football League game in 2015, when he started three games with the Cowboys and one game with the Texans.

Before exiting Sunday's loss, the third-year quarterback blasted through Houston's defense for a 34-yard scoring run before punching in a 2-yard touchdown on the ground prior to halftime.

If Marcus Mariota can't play, it is likely no team will have an older pair of quarterbacks in uniform Sunday than the Tennessee Titans. To make room on the roste they waived linebacker Josh Carraway.

The Titans have also done some shuffling on the practice squad.
