ESPN - [Full Article]

Marcus Mariota took some dropbacks Monday at less than full speed and the Tennessee Titans will assess the quarterback and his injured right knee as the week moves along.

But it appears unlikely the rookie quarterback will return to action for the season finale at Indianapolis.

“He did some things today that we hoped he would do and we’ll see how he feels from it tomorrow,” interim coach Mike Mularkey said. “... His health is No. 1 for us. He’s got a such a great future ahead of him. He’s got plenty of games, lots of games to go. We won’t expose him, at all, if there is anything there...

“Any bit of doubt, he will not play.”

Mularkey said he expects receiver Kendall Wright, who left the loss to Houston early with a knee injury, to practice Wednesday at least in limited fashion.
