Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota underwent successful surgery to repair the broken right fibula he sustained in Saturday’s loss at Jacksonville.
Mariota had the surgery on Wednesday afternoon, and the Titans issued a statement following the operation.
“The surgery on Marcus Mariota’s fractured fibula was completed late this afternoon and from those involved considered a success,” the club said in a statement released Wednesday evening.
Mariota is expected to need four to five months recovery time following the surgery.
In addition to Mariota, defensive lineman Karl Klug also had surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn left Achilles tendon.
As for those on the injury report on Wednesday, cornerback Jason McCourty missed practice again with his injured chest/shoulder. McCourty is hopeful of returning to the practice field later this week and hopes to have a chance to play in the season finale Sunday against Houston.
Linebacker Sean Spence was out of practice due to illness, while tight end Jace Amaro was limited with a quadriceps injury.
Cornerback LeShaun Sims was a full participant, but has to now clear the concussion protocol in order to play Sunday.
