Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota sprained his MCL an MRI revealed on Monday.

Mariota sustained the injury during Sunday's loss against the Miami Dolphins when linebacker Olivier Vernon delivered a low hit on the quarterback.

Head coach Ken Whisenhunt told reporters that the team won't put Mariota in any situation to put him in any kind of jeopardy. With the cautious take, Mariota's status is uncertain for Week 7's matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.
