Titans QB Marcus Mariota officially ruled out for Week 5

Mariota, who was hurt in last week's loss to Houston, was limited in practice, stretching and throwing passes during the open portion of the workouts on Wednesday.

Starter Marcus Mariota had been considered a game-time decision and was listed on the injury report as questionable with a hamstring problem. On Sunday, it was Matt Cassel in place of Mariota while veteran quarterback Jay Cutler once again got the nod for the Dolphins. Mariota could be good to go as early as Week 6 if he's ultimately ruled inactive later today. Situationally, the Steelers also benefit from drawing the Jaguars in their third straight week on the road, including a game in London two weeks ago and a full overtime period in a game they lost outright to the Jets last week.

Adams' injury was the latest in a long string of maladies that dogged the Packers over the first quarter of the season.

Colin Kaepernick remains a free agent even after yet another National Football League team found itself in need of a veteran quarterback, and the former general manager of that team is not surprised Kaepernick never received a call. The Dolphins are averaging 8.3 points and 271 yards per game on offense.

When asked about picking Wilshere, Southgate said: 'We're in a position where there's no way we would dismiss any creative player. Despite the unenthusiastic reaction to the performance, Kane says England should be proud of their achievement.

Tennessee's DeMarco Murray managed only 58 yards rushing. Defensively, a Cameron Wake sack was the lone highlight as the Saints put up 347 yards of total offense on the Miami D, while holding onto the rock for over 34 minutes in the Dolphins' loss.

It was the fact that Marcus Mariota left the game at halftime with a strained hamstring, and seeing how the already-reeling Titans fared without him. He still thinks that Cutler deserves to start over backup Matt Moore because he hasn't turned the ball over that much (two interceptions in three games) and created a tense atmosphere in the locker room.

After amassing a 10-6 record past year, the Dolphins (1-2) found themselves lagging behind the New England Patriots (3-2) and the surprising leader Buffalo Bills (3-1) in the AFC East standings. Weeden spent most of the rest of his time running the scout team just to get some work. Reese explains that Weeden knows he has to "conform exactly to whatever it is they want", while Kaepernick would need the offense to adjust to him.

This week Dolphin fans should root for the ultimate underdog, Jay Cutler, against the Titans.
