Marcus Mariota was not very good Sunday, and he was really bad after a shoulder/elbow injury robbed him of some feeling in his fingers. He floated two passes that turned into interceptions and sat the rest of the way. He finished 9 for 16 for 103 yards, no touchdowns and the two picks, for a tidy quarterback rating of 37.4.
He said afterward he probably should have thought better of returning after the injury.

The story seemed concerned about Mariota and his injuries, and said he needs to get back from injury fast and figure things out in this offense because a lot is still new. A lack of precision as a key to his struggles. The story added this is a big season for Mariota and his future with the team. But owners will have to keep an eye on his status for next week against the Texans now.
