Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger to step in for Marcus Mariota again

The Tennessee Titans announced Friday that they will start quarterback Zach Mettenberger in place of Marcus Mariota for a second straight game.

Mariota sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee Oct. 17.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said of Mariota: "I think physically he's probably right on the line of being ready to go. But it's a tough enough position to play without getting the bulk of the reps, and that was part of it."

Mariota may return to action Nov. 8 when the Titans face the New Orleans Saints.
