Marcus Mariota Reportedly Not Expected to Play Week 5 with Hamstring Injury

Mariota said he needs to have some mobility in order to be able to play.

Through the first four weeks of the season, the Miami Dolphins have the NFL's worst statistical offense. With Dan Marino sidelined by an injury, Damon Huard started at quarterback for the Dolphins in this Sunday night game at Pro Player Stadium and he threw touchdown passes to wide receiver Tony Martin and Stanley Pritchett. But nine months later the offenses are different in terms of ability and tempo, and one key factor stands to give the defenses a hidden edge. In general, the entire team will have to play more carefully, avoiding mistakes, if they want to win without their usual quarterback.

Earlier this week, Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota injured his hamstring, and while the team wasn't sure whether or not Mariota would miss any time, they made a decision to bring in another quarterback. He held Oklahoma State's record for career passing yardage before Mason Rudolph broke it earlier this season, but Weeden still holds to two highest single-season totals in school history.

Miami had lost two straight games heading into Sunday.

Tennessee is 16-38-3 ATS in their last 57 games overall and 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Matt Cassel will remain on the sidelines.

The Titans loss against Houston was a debacle in just about every area, but the injury to Marcus Mariota could be the most concerning thing about it.

While the season is off to a disappointing start, the Dolphins have improved their run defense, which ranks fourth in the National Football League allowing 3.1 yards per carry. "We just talked last week about how you thought Delanie Walker getting a death threat cost them the game", Reese said.

Mariota has passed for 792 yards and three touchdowns so far this season, his third in the NFL. Against the Saints last week, Cordrea Tankersley replaced Maxwell in the Dolphins starting lineup. As if that weren't enough, they had to do so after an embarrassing loss to division foe the New York Jets. The Titans briefly showed some life with two second-quarter touchdowns by quarterback Marcus Mariota to cut a 24-point deficit to ten, but they never scored again. The Dolphins need to play really hard.
