While Mariota certainly is very fast and the offense occasionally caters to his athleticism with a designed run or option play, it is not their offense.

The Titans signed Brandon Weeden this week as an emergency quarterback and have Matt Cassel ready to go.

The first reason Reese offers is that Kaepernick doesn't fit the team because he is most comfortable "moving to run", while they are looking for someone that moves to throw.

The internet, including this writer, had questions: How in fuck's sake do you bring out these high school junior varsity quarterbacks and not even give Kaepernick a call?

Chargers at Giants: Who has the edge?
OUT: After playing in 84 straight games, Giants DE Olivier Vernon (ankle) was sidelined for the first time in his career. Evading pressure and throwing off his back foot, Rivers completed a 25-yard touchdown pass to tight end Hunter Henry.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota's hamstring injury could need 2-to-4 weeks of recovery time according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Titans obviously struggled in last weekend's 57-14 loss to the Texans, but with the capable running back duo of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry on hand, it's not hard to imagine a run-fueled attack in the absence of Mariota. Further, Mariota's absence means there will be an increase in pressure on Matt Cassel. Former Heisman Trophy victor Derrick Henry is churning out 4.6 yards per tote this season, but Mariota leads the club with three rushing touchdowns.

The Miami Marlins will look to bounce back after being shut out by the New Orleans Saints in week 4 by a final score of 20-0 to fall to 1-2 this season.
