Source: Marcus Mariota hamstring still an issue, ankle could require clean-up surgery

CHANDLER, Ariz. – The hamstring injury Marcus Mariota suffered earlier this season remains a problem and it’s complicated by lingering issues with his surgically repaired leg/ankle from 2016, which could require a clean-up procedure after the season, a source told me.

Mariota broke his right fibula on Dec. 24, 2016 in Jacksonville and had surgery, which required the insertion of a plate. The break was of his lower leg, near his ankle. He spent the offseason rehabilitating, with his work prior to training camp maxing out at running seven-on-seven passing drills with no linemen.MariotaTightBAL

The left hamstring strain occurred as he ran a touchdown into the right side of the end zone on Oct. 1 in Houston.
