Mariota, however, is completely ready to play if he can manage it.

Early in the game, Cassel dropped back, looking for an open receiver, when the Miami Dolphins' Kiko Alonso absolutely leveled him.

Such is the case with the Tennessee Titans recent signing of backup Brandon Weeden. The well-traveled Dolphins have ventured to Los Angeles, New Jersey and London for their first three contests - with Jay Ajayi's rushing game being grounded with just 62 yards in the last two. Eleven personnel hasn't been working for the Dolphins and if their offense is in fact predicated on establishing the run game first, look for them to experiment with more 22 or 12 personnel packages.

Earlier this week, Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota injured his hamstring, and while the team wasn't sure whether or not Mariota would miss any time, they chose to bring in another quarterback.

These two teams have had opposite fortunes through the opening month of the season, with the Buffalo Bills pushing on with a 3-1 record to top the AFC East.

It was only after the forensic review conducted by Mandiant that the actual number was found to be far lower than the estimate. In total, Barros could make roughly $2.99 million for his job, and that could rise to $3.7 million based on performance.

Dolphins defensive tackle Jordan Phillips practiced all this week despite an ankle injury, but he will not play against the Titans on Sunday. The Dolphins held Tennessee to just 188 total yards and an ugly 2-for-13 on third down. If Miami could get him going again, it would mean that Jay Cutler would be able to work off play-action instead of having to carry the offense.

The Titans obviously struggled in last weekend's 57-14 loss to the Texans, but with the capable running back duo of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry on hand, it's not hard to imagine a run-fueled attack in the absence of Mariota.

Not to mention the Titans made a decision to go with Mariota after bringing in an all-star lineup off National Football League junk parts in Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin and T.J. Yates. It was more than anxiety of, 'What are we actually going to do?

Since the start of the 2015 season, Mariota has the NFL's best passer rating inside an opponent's 20 at 111.3, with 33 touchdowns and no interceptions. The Miami Dolphins are at 1-2.

On defense, aside from superstars Ndamukong Suh and Reshad Jones, the Dolphins heavily rely on older players who are past their primes.
