The Texans not only avoided facing Andrew Luck during the entire 2015 season, but now they will miss facing Marcus Mariota as well, per NFL Media's Rand Getlin.
I'm told #Titans QB Marcus Mariota suffered a sprained MCL yesterday and isn't expected to play again this season.— Rand Getlin (@Rand_Getlin) December 21, 2015
Chris Mortensen is hearing the same thing.
Marcus Mariota's season is done, per sources. Right knee MCL sprain. He had a left knee MCL sprain earlier in year.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) December 21, 2015
Mariota, who was rolled up on awkwardly during yesterday's blowout loss to the Patriots, was seen immediately grabbing his knee and grimacing in pain. Backup quarterback and apparent mortal enemy to J.J. Watt, Zach Mettenberger, came on in relief and threw two garbage time touchdowns to Delanie Walker, though at that point the game had long been lost.
That's right, ladies and gentlemen. This Sunday we may get to see yet another chapter of #SelfieGate. Brace yourselves for imminent hilarity.
