NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Injured, again, Marcus Mariota wasn’t on the field with the Titans in the second half at Nissan Stadium Saturday evening.

It struck me that he wasn’t out there at all.

Hey, if the doctors felt he needed treatment inside, so be it.MariotaHurtWash

I understand there are all sorts of different degree of stingers, and if he had one that numbed his throwing arm or hand and he couldn’t throw or grip a ball he simply couldn’t play through it.

But this marked the seventh game in his career that he was knocked out of (and the first of the seven the Titans won). He’s also missed seven starts.

So in 63 games he either hasn’t started or hasn’t finished 14. That’s 22 percent. It's not in his control. But it's way too much.
