Brandon Weeden signing with TItans


A native of Jackson, Miss.

Florio reasoned that Kaepernick "makes so much more sense" than Titans backup Matt Cassell because he is a mobile quarterback like Mariota.

Mularkey compared Mariota's injury to the hamstring strain that DeMarco Murray suffered September 17 at Jacksonville.

"He's a pretty fast healer", Mularkey said. He did not miss a game, rushing for 115 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown against Seattle on September 24.

Matt Cassel is Mariota's backup, and now the Titans (2-2) have someone in Weeden who has started 25 of his 34 National Football League games. Per's Cameron Wolfe, Mularkey said Mariota doesn't necessarily need to practice during the week in order to play in Sunday's game. At Chattanooga, Board played in 51 games, with 47 starts, and caught 146 passes for 2,032 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Mariota is scheduled to have an MRI on the hamstring this morning.

Starting quarterback Marcus Mariota suffered a hamstring in Sunday's game against the Texans, and he's "day to day", according to Titans coach Mike Mularkey. And if Mariota is deemed healthy enough for that role, he would be a better option than a healthy Cassel.

The good news for the Titans is that he's considered day-to-day with his injury.
