Marcus Mariota reportedly has pinched nerve in his elbow

Marcus Mariota Titans

Marcus Mariota is facing a pretty serious elbow injury.

Mariota has a pinched nerve in his elbow, according to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport. Rapoport says the Tennessee Titans quarterback still has not regained complete feeling in his fingers.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter adds that Mariota still isn’t able to grip the ball normally.

Though it’s unclear whether this will be a long-term issue for Mariota, having trouble gripping a ball due to a pinched nerve suggests it will be difficult for Mariota to play in Tennessee’s Week 2 game against Houston. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel has said he expects to play both Mariota and backup Blaine Gabbert during the game.

Mariota suffered the injury when he was hit on an RPO play in Week 1 against the Dolphins.
