Titans place Marc Mariani on IR in trimming to 75
The Tennessee Titans have placed receiver and returner Marc
Mariani on injured reserve in trimming the roster to 75 before
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.
