The Titans still have a shot at making it into the playoffs. All they need to do is beat the Colts on Sunday. Easier said than done, especially if quarterback Marcus Mariota is unable to play.
Mariota left last week’s game early with what was described as a stinger. During an interview on Nashville’s 104.5 The Fan, he provided details on what happened when he suffered the stinger.
Titans QB Marcus Mariota to 104.5 in Nashville: “It was one of those deals where it kind of crunched, and basically sent my whole right side numb and tingly.” Mariota said "I'm going to do my best" to play Sunday.

“I’m going to do my best” doesn’t sound like Mariota is expecting to be available on Sunday. If he’s unable to go the Titans playoff hopes will rest with backup Blaine Gabbert.
Those are words that no Titans fan wants to hear.
