Titans go get another QB, add Weeden with Mariota ailing

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota scored touchdowns on runs of 34 and two yards but suffered a hamstring injury on the second run that forced him out of the Titans 57-14 loss at Houston on Sunday

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Titans have agreed to sign free agent quarterback Brandon Weeden.

Mularkey said if Cassel were to play, the Titans would have to shift some of their run-game scheme, but much of the pass game plan would remain the same. The 33-year-old spent time with the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans after leaving Cleveland.

Weeden, seen above getting sacked by the American flag, started 20 games for the Browns in 2012 and 2013, eventually losing the starting role to Jason Campbell.

To make room on the 53-man roster, the Titans have waived linebacker Josh Carraway, a seventh round pick out of TCU who has been inactive the first four games.

During his rookie season, the 6-3, 230-pounder started all 15 games he appeared in and threw for 3,385 yards with 14 touchdowns against 17 interceptions alongside a 57.4 completion percentage and 72.6 rating. The Titans only carry two QBs with Matt Cassel as the backup.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was diagnosed with a minor strained hamstring following an MRI.

The team signed receiver C.J. Board, a Clarksville native who played at UT Chattanooga, to the 10-man practice squad.
