Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota left Saturday’s game against the Washington Redskins with an injury. He left late in the second quarter.
Mariota has been replaced by backup Blaine Gabbert, who closed out the first half. If Mariota is not able to return, Gabbert would finish the game.
According to the team, his injury is being considered a stringer. He is dealing with the injury in his shoulder, according to NFL Network’s Melissa Stark.
The injury happened with the Redskins leading 10-6 with 54 seconds left in the game. He was injured when Jonathan Allen tackled him to the ground.
Mariota went 10 of 13 for 110 yards before leaving the game.
The 25-year-old Honolulu, Hawai’i native has gone 6-6 in 12 starts this season. He has made 13 appearances on the season.
