Titans QB Marcus Mariota day to day with strained hamstring

He is 6-19 as a starter in the NFL.

With Marcus Mariota considered day-to-day after suffering a hamstring injury in Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans, the Tennessee Titans are adding some depth at the quarterback position. One of Cleveland's two first-round picks in 2012, Weeden signed on Tuesday with the Tennessee Titans.

Yes, the fleet of foot 33-year-old who has averaged 5.9 rushing yards per game and has a robust passer rating of 76 for his career was the easy choice. Weeden has started 25 games in five National Football League season, owns a 31:30 touchdown to interception ratio, 76.0 passer rating and 6-19 #QBWinz record.

The Titans will bring Weeden in as a third quarterback behind Matt Cassel and Mariota, to provide some veteran depth in case Mariota can't play Sunday against the Dolphins.

The Titans, who visit Miami (1-2) on Sunday, also waived linebacker Josh Carraway and swapped wide receiver C.J. Board onto the practice squad with cornerback Kenneth Durden released.

Cassel stepped into the picture after Mariota's exit in the Houston game and proceeded to throw two interceptions, finishing with just 21 passing yards on 4-of-10 attempts. He will likely start if Mariota is unable to play.
