Marcus Mariota returns after scary shot to knee

ESPN - [Full Article]

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt and left tackle Taylor Lewan had strong words for Dolphins defensive end Olivier Vernon's hit on Marcus Mariota in the first quarter of Sunday's game.

"I think it was B.S.," Whisenhunt said after Tennessee's 38-10 loss to Miami. "That's not the way you play football. I think it was done with the idea of trying to hurt our quarterback, and that's bulls--- football."

Mariota didn't leave the game, but he was clearly hobbled and wore a left knee brace for the remainder of the game, in which he lost two fumbles and threw two interceptions.

Reports said Mariota was to get an X-ray Monday. In this story, he commented he expects to be a full-go for Wednesday's practice as the Titans prepare for next week's home game against Atlanta. He was sacked five times Sunday, raising his season total to 19, the story said.
