Orakpo out vs. Giants, Titans add Mariota to injury report

December 14, 2018

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans will be without outside linebacker Brian Orakpo on Sunday for their key road game against the New York Giants, and they also added quarterback Marcus Mariota to the injury report with an abdomen problem.

Mariota was limited at practice Friday after not being on the injury report for the previous two practices.

Orakpo hurt his elbow last week in a win over Jacksonville and did not practice all week for the Titans (7-6), who must win to keep their AFC wild-card playoff hopes alive. Rookie Harold Landry is likely to get the start in place of Orakpo opposite Derrick Morgan. Fellow rookie Sharif Finch and Kamalei Correa, who has been a healthy scratch the past two games, also will be back in the rotation.

The Titans also declared running back David Fluellen (knee) out again. He has not played since injuring his knee against New England. Also newly signed tight end Cole Wick is out after tweaking his shoulder on Wednesday.
