Share This Story



The Tennessee Titans have placed receiver and returner Marc Mariani on injured reserve in trimming the roster to 75 before Monday's deadline.

Mariani was hurt Thursday night at the end of a punt return in a 32-27 win over Arizona with a compound fracture where both bones in his lower left leg snapped. He was carted off the field and was in surgery before the game ended.

The Titans also put rookie safety Markelle Martin on the physically-unable-to-perform list, keeping him off the active roster for the first six weeks of the season.

Tennessee also released center William Vlachos; punter/kicker Will Batson; guard George Bias; receivers Chase Deadder, LaQuinton Evans and Marcus Harris; tight end Joey Haynos; tackle Jonathan Palmer; safety Christian Scott; and quarterback Nick Stephens.
