“I feel a lot better,” Mariota relayed to reporters. “I have to give a lot of credit to the athletic staff, the training staff here. They’ve done a great job, and I am feeling good.”
Mariota responded with "absolutely" when asked by reporters if he feels good about playing this week. While he doesn't have the final say in the matter, it's a good sign how optimistic Mariota feels about playing this week. The Titans and fantasy players sure could use him. If Mariota does play he'll return in time to play in one of the best matchups of the week versus a Colts team allowing the second-most fantasy points to the quarterback position at a clip of 20.8 points per game.
