Titans' Mariota (elbow) questionable to return in Miami

  • Marcus Mariota injures elbow in Titans' loss to Miami Dolphins

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota left in the second half with an elbow injury and had to be replaced by Blaine Gabbert.

Lightning forced a pair of delays in Sunday's freakish Dolphins-Titans game that turned out to be the longest game in National Football League history.

"I love the way we responded - the way we were able to overcome the delays, to come out with energy after sitting around", Tannehill said. "I felt we handled it well, but in the end we didn't do enough to win the game". The run defense exhibited hope that they are moving in the right direction, limiting the big plays to a minimum, allowing only one play of twenty yards or more.

Tennessee's top two draft picks also are linebackers, and Rashaan Evans and Harold Landry both missed the opener with injuries. The second weather delay lasted more than two hours.

Morgan said it wasn't easy warming up, cooling down again and again, but thinks the Titans learned some mental toughness from the day that wouldn't end.

In 2017, Hurricane Irma postponed their Week 1 contest, forcing them to play 16 consecutive games without a bye week.

Mariota left the game in the third quarter with an apparent injury to his throwing hand.

Trump visits Montana to boost Democratic Sen. Jon Tester's GOP challenger
After conducting 520 campaign rallies , Trump's staffers appear to have developed a surgical approach to addressing the riff-raff. It includes news footage saying Tester helped write the bills, side by side with images of Trump praising their passage.

Fales, a backup for the Dolphins last season, and Luke Falk, a rookie who the Dolphins invited for pre-draft workouts earlier this year, were inactive for Sunday's game.

"I thought it was late and low, but that's not a decision for me to make", said Mariota, who motioned to a nearby official after absorbing the hit.

The Titans had crossed midfield when Jones intercepted a Gabbert pass, and Jason Sanders' 30-yard field goal iced the game with 3:49 to go.

The Titans face Houston in their home opener next Sunday.

Vrabel did say he told defensive coordinator Dean Pees to take note of how officials are handling quarterbacks carrying out a fake on a run-pass option.

"That's the job we have - to make sure we play through whatever situation", Vrabel said.

Lewan was resting Monday.
