    Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (8) is sacked by Miami Dolphins defensive end Olivier Vernon (50) in the first half of an NFL football game today in Nashville

Quarterback Marcus Mariota will sit out Sunday’s game at Houston, the Tennessee Titans announced today.

"Marcus Mariota made a lot of progress this week, but we aren’t going to play him Sunday," Titans’ coach Ken Whisenhunt said on the team’s website.

Mariota suffered a knee injury two weeks ago the result of a controversial hit by Dolphins defensive end Olivier Vernon in a 38-10 loss to Miami. Vernon was fined $37,363 by the NFL.

Mariota sat out last week’s game at Atlanta, the first he’s missed in four years as a starter, three of them at the University of Oregon.

Zach Mettenberger will again start for the Titans.
