Titans takeaways from the Miami Marathon

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker is unlikely to play another game this season after suffering a serious ankle injury during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

They've had plenty of practice dealing with unusual challenges. "I just like the way that we're operating".

"I couldn't feel my fingers, feel my hand", Mariota said.

On Mariota's next throw, he missed high and was picked off by Jones.

After his score, Ryan Tannehill hit Kenny Stills deep for a 75-yard touchdown.

Grant's touchdown triggered a late flurry of big plays in a season opener that was lackluster for the first six hours.

On Mariota's first interception of the game, picked by the Dolphins' Reshad Jones, Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan also was hurt when Dolphins defensive lineman Andre Branch hit Lewan hard during the return.


"Being able to see him on the practice squad past year and see what he did in Houston in his time there practicing against us and some of the stuff that he did was excited to be able to get him and tell (general manager) Jon (Robinson) that this is somebody that we think can help us", Vrabel said. "I was going, 'Please run by me'".

The Dolphins committed seven penalties for 51 yards, not including the two taunting penalties on defensive tackle Jordan Phillips and cornerback Bobby McClain because they offset the Titans penalty.

"If that's legal, then we have to do it the same exact way", Vrabel said.

"I reflected a little bit on the grind that it was to get back here", Tannehill said.

In this case, the focus now has turned to the New York Jets, who the Dolphins will face Sunday at MetLife Stadium. Less than four minutes later, Stills scored over the top of Tennessee's defense on a 75-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill, who made his comeback after missing the previous 20 games due to knee surgery. "It's a lot of fun to play with them".

This has been an absolutely disastrous opening Sunday for Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota.
