The Titans got bad news in the first half when defensive coordinator Dean Pees had to be taken to the hospital to deal with a medical issue and they played like a distracted team for much of the first 30 minutes.Tennessee surrendered 17 points in a nine-minute stretch bridging the first and second quarters and the Colts tacked on another touchdown later in the second quarter to build a 24-0 lead over their divisional rivals. That lead is down to 24-3 after the Titans rallied for a field goal David Long Jersey , but the Colts remain firmly in control.A big reason for that is the return of their pass rush. The Colts didn’t get a sack in either of the last two games, but they’ve dropped Marcus Mariota four times already this afternoon. The last of those sacks was by Denico Autry and it resulted in Mariota making an early trip to the locker room with what appeared to be a hand or wrist injury.It’s not clear if he’ll be back in the lineup when the second half gets underway. Blaine Gabbert took his place for the final offensive play of the half before Ryan Succop‘s field goal.Long story short, last week’s great day against the Patriots feels like a distant memory for the Titans.: Mariota is questionable to return with an elbow injury. The Titans played without quarterback Marcus Mariota on Sunday because of a right elbow injury and it’s not clear how much longer that will be the case.Head coach Mike Vrabel said on Monday that Mariota’s status is the same as it was heading into the weekend and that he is “hopeful that it will improve as quickly as possible.”“There’s some things he can do, and there鈥檚 some throws that he can鈥檛 really comfortably make,鈥?Vrabel said David Long Tennessee Titans Jersey , via the team’s website. “So we’ll see where he鈥檚 at as this things go on. …聽It could be something that actually … gets better overnight, and it gets better tomorrow. So that鈥檚 kind of where we鈥檙e at. We鈥檙e waiting to see, and every day is a new day.”Blaine Gabbert started in Mariota’s place and went 13-of-20 for 117 yards and a touchdown while also leading the drive that resulted in Ryan Succop‘s game-winning field goal. The Titans also had safety Kevin Byard throw a touchdown on a fake punt and used running back Derrick Henry out of the Wildcat during the victory over Houston.
