The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

NASHVILLE, TENN. | Ten­nessee Titans quar­ter­back Mar­cus Mar­i­ota will have surgery Wed­nes­day for his bro­ken right leg, and coach Mike Mu­larkey says the re­cov­ery process will take four to five months.

Mu­larkey said Mon­day that Mar­i­ota will have a plate in­serted over the break by Dr. Bob An­der­son in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Titans coach didn’t share any other de­tails, but Mu­larkey has had An­der­son re­pair his feet and says there’s no other doc­tor he trusts for this surgery.

Mar­i­ota was hurt Satur­day when sacked dur­ing a 38-17 loss to Jacksonville. Train­ers placed an air cast on his leg be­fore he was carted off the field. This is the sec­ond straight sea­son Mar­i­ota has missed the sea­son fi­nale be­cause of an in­jury.
