Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel says Marcus Mariota suffered a ”stinger” and that is what knocked the quarterback out of their loss against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, not an injury to his elbow. Vrabel said today that the injury was evaluated by an independent neurologist. The coach says now they need to see how Mariota is with a second opinion possible but are hopeful Mariota feels good enough to play Monday night in Houston.
Tennessee defensive coordinator Dean Pees also is returning to Nashville on Monday after spending a night in an Indianapolis hospital. Vrabel says all tests on Pees came back positively without saying what issue caused the coordinator to be taken to a hospital early in the game.
