Matthews was rolling in the first two quarters - he almost caught a 30-yard score but was tackled at the two-yard line - only for the air to be zapped from Tennessee's balloon when Marcus Mariota left with a third-quarter hamstring strain.

Mularkey compared Mariota's injury to the hamstring strain that DeMarco Murray suffered September 17 at Jacksonville. "He's a pretty fast healer". Murray missed the fourth quarter of that game and two practices during the next week.

Matt Cassel is Mariota's backup, and now the Titans (2-2) have someone in Weeden who has started 25 of his 34 National Football League games.

Mularkey also said the Titans are deciding on whether or not to add another quarterback. As a result, Matt Cassel is in line to start if Mariota is ultimately designated inactive. If Mariota plays, he could be limited in his designed run plays as that hamstring heals.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that an MRI was scheduled for this morning, yielding a more definite update regarding the quarterback's status.

Tennessee needs insurance with starter Marcus Mariota slowed with a hamstring injury.

Cassel is in his second year as Mariota's backup.

The good news for the Titans is that he's considered day-to-day with his injury.
