Tennessee Titans: Week 5 vs. Miami Dolphins Injury Report

HOUSTON, TX - OCTOBER 01: Marcus Mariota
HOUSTON, TX - OCTOBER 01: Marcus Mariota /

The big blow happened, the injury to the one guy that really cannot be replaced with someone on the Tennessee Titans’ roster occurred.

Marcus Mariota – Quarterback – Hamstring

The common theme this season is hamstring injuries. Marcus Mariota was hit with the injury bug again this season. It has become a common theme with the young quarterback. This injury should be alarming to Tennessee Titans fans because that means Matt Cassel may be under center on Sunday. Mariota has been limited in practice all week and there still is potential that he is ready to go for the game. At this point it is really a 50/50 chance Mariota plays on Sunday. This injury can really change the course of the season, though.

Corey Davis – Wide Receiver – Hamstring

The rookie wide receiver is already ruled out for Week 5 against the Miami Dolphins. He is still healing from the hamstring injury that has sidelined the young player for much of the preseason and the regular season. This is another disappointment because Davis is supposed to be a top notch talent. Hopefully, Davis will be back to catching footballs from one of the quarterbacks on the Titans’ roster soon. Maybe Week 6 is the week we will see the young receiver come back.

Johnathan Cyprien – Safety – Hamstring

No news is not always good news. Cyprien has been out since the first game of the season. In that time, he has not practiced or even really stepped foot on the field. Maybe this hamstring injury is more serious than we were led on to believe. Of course, Cyprien is still in that few weeks timeline that fans were originally given. Hopefully, he will start doing work soon, but do not expect Cyprien to be on the field against the Dolphins.

Quinton Spain – Guard – Turf Toe

Now we are on the players with injuries that will probably play this weekend. Spain has a case of turf toe. It is expected that the offensive lineman will be able to get on the field for Sunday, as he practiced in full towards the end of the week. Spain is a big part of the offensive line and would be missed if he cannot go on Sunday, but it looks like he will be able to.

Tye Smith – Cornerback – Neck

Smith has had some rough luck this year. He first had a hand injury and now has a neck injury. Smith was able to practice fully on Thursday. Hopefully his injury is not going to keep him off the field on Sunday. Smith is not necessarily one of the more important defensive backs on the roster, but any cornerback that can suit up will be helpful to a weak secondary, especially considering his added special teams ability.
