The #Tennessee Titans remain unsure if quarterback #Marcus Mariota will start when they take on the Indianapolis Colts Monday. According to Titans coach Mike Mularkey, Mariota is listed as questionable and a lot of things must be considered before he will be allowed to play, per Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com. Mariota, who was limited in practice all week, is hoping that he can suit up against the Colts if his health allows him to. The quarterback suffered a hamstring injury in the first half of their 57-14 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 4.

Before he suffered the injury, Mariota was struggling against the Texans, completing six of 10 passes for 96 yards and two interceptions.

He made up for it by rushing for 39 yards and two touchdowns. If Mariota cannot play, the Titans will rely on veteran Matt Cassel, who completed 21 of 32 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown in their 16-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5 [VIDEO].

Colts place right guard on IR

The Colts, for their part, will play the rest of the season without starting right guard #Jack Mewhort, who was placed on injured reserve Saturday after aggravating a knee injury in Friday's practice. According to Colts coach Chuck Pagano, Mewhort needs to undergo another procedure after his knee flared up during walk-throughs. A second-pick by the Colts in the 2014 NFL Draft, Mewhort had started all five games this season. Last season, he missed six games and was placed on injured reserve due to the same injury.

The injury happened at a bad time for Mewhort, who is in the final year of his four-year rookie deal and is expected to become an unrestricted free agent in 2018. In a corresponding move, the Colts signed second-year guard Isaiah Williams as a possible replacement for Mewhort. The Colts could also rely on Kyle Kalis, Mike Person and Le'Raven Clark.

Patriots rookie involved in car accident

New England Patriots rookie linebacker Harvey Langi will not play against the New York Jets Sunday after he was hospitalized with a back injury after being involved in a car accident. In a statement, the Patriots said Langi and a passenger were involved in a traffic accident in Foxborough. The team said the two were stopped at a traffic light when they were rear-ended by another vehicle. The Patriots signed Langi as an undrafted free agent out of Brigham Young. He suited up for the Patriots in their Week 2 win over the New Orleans Saints. During training camp, Langi received the highest salary for an undrafted rookie in the league, earning $100,000 guaranteed base salary and a $15,000 signing bonus.
