  • Dolphins vs. Titans preview 5 questions with Titans Wire

Mariota pushed to play this week but was limited to stationary throws at practice.

The 23-year-old underwent an MRI earlier in the week, and it appears the team still isn't certain if he will be able to play against the Dolphins this weekend, so they've chose to sign another quarterback to backup Cassel in case he is unable to go.

Our models project Mariota to post 2,812.4 passing yards, 21.1 passing touchdowns, and 7.2 interceptions over the remainder of the season.

Obviously, Cutler's not the sole reason for the Dolphins' offensive ineptitude - there are too many factors to list - but he's definitely not blameless.

Australia , on the other hand will aim to gain some confidence before heading back to play the Ashes series in a month's time. Earlier, David Warner made his intent clear with successive boundaries off Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the first over.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is reportedly "not expected to play" Sunday against the Miami Dolphins as he continues to suffer from a hamstring injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Dolphins: WR DeVante Parker left the game in the first quarter with an ankle injury and didn't return. Tennessee may lean heavily on a running game that is averaging an NFL-best 5.0 yards per carry, with 2016 AFC rushing leader DeMarco Murray (5.1) rumbling for 121 yards in Tennessee's 30-17 victory over Miami on October 9, 2016.

Cutler went 12 for 26 for just 92 yards, but the Dolphins improved to 2-2 while the Titans fell to 2-3. As if that weren't enough, they had to do so after an embarrassing loss to division foe the New York Jets.

Mariota sustained a strained hamstring during the Titans loss to Houston in Week 4. They're now ranked No. 28 in time of possession, and they must hold the ball longer or score more points if they hope to complement their defense that has played well enough to win. An offense missing its QB - Matt Cassel is the backup - could put more pressure on the team's defense, which allowed Houston to score a franchise-record point total last week.

Myanmar ready to take back Rohingya refugees
Bloody riots in 2012 forced over 100,000 Rohingya to flee to refugee camps in southeast Bangladesh, where many still live. Some 900,000 doses of vaccine are due to arrive in the region at the weekend.

The Titans could be without starting quarterback Marcus Mariota.

And given that Mariota's running is an integral part of his game, the Titans must monitor that part of things, as well.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross expects players to stand for the National Anthem on Sunday.

Dolphins fans spent most of the team's home opener booing Jay Cutler and the Dolphins lackluster offense.
