Mariota was 3/6 passing for 32 yards before suffering the injury. Backup Zach Mettenberger has sinced replaced him.

If Mariota has to miss an extended period of time, Mettenberger is capable of stepping in for the Titans. He started two games earlier in the season against the Falcons and Texans, along with six starts last season.
