There isn’t a single mention about his health in the article. From what I can remember there were zero questions about the ability to recover from the injury in a reasonable amount of time. 

I remember that Charger doctor saying that if he didn’t get the feeling back in his fingers in a week that it could linger work a long time.

This was discussed ad nauseam at the time. Standard strategy with an injured player. Leave doubt in the minds of the Colts. You’ve been following pro football long enough to know this.  

 

Im sure Mariota wanted to play in the biggest game. They let him try and throw but they knew from the doctor that they needed to sit him. 

Seems pretty straightforward. MM wanted to play and probably pushed to play but in the end they felt he could make it worse with the wrong hit so they shut him down.

I think MM wanted to play but this was not the Titans tricking the Colts, they wanted him to play

Looks like Marcus put on a lot of weight.

Looks like he might be wearing something under the shirt.  Perhaps a vest to protect the rib?

there is a lot to last season that didn't quite make sense...being available as the #2 but not starting??  That really goes against the norm.

and if I'm the team I damn sure want to know if there is any risk of permanent injury to a guy I'm on the hook for to the tune of $20+ mill.  Why are you relying on him to go out and get his own opinion from a different doctor?

Why doesn’t that make sense? 

They can usually have a pretty good bet that a guy doesn’t get knocked out. If he heals better because he doesn’t play... great!

 

mcnair did the same thing against a division rival.

The receivers have to do extra laps after practicing with Mariota since they would not run very far catching his throws.
