Did Marcus Mariota get injured on a dirty hit against the Dolphins?

Fans and players alike have had to sit through numerous weather delays during Sunday's Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins game.

The game was stopped twice, on either side of halftime, for a total of almost four hours due to lightning. The Titans also lost quarterback Marcus Mariota to an elbow injury.

About four minutes later, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill connected with Kenny Stills on a deep pass for a 75-yard touchdown to extend Miami's lead to 24-10. "Lots of carbs, so we will do some conditioning tomorrow". By the time it was over more than seven hours later, the late afternoon games were all in the books. "It's just one of those ones where I like both of those guys". Walker was carted off the field later in the period with a right leg injury.

In the third quarter, Mariota took a hit on his right hand after being knocked down by Dolphins defensive lineman William Hayes.

Gabbert didn't do that, going 11 for 22 for 117 yards and an interception that sealed the win for Miami. The touchdown toss was Tannehill's first since the 2016 season, due to multiple season-ending injuries over his previous two campaigns.

Dion Lewis' first rushing touchdown with his new team knotted the score.

The game didn't resume until almost two hours later, when the AFC squads came onto the field to close the half.

Add to that the Titans are recovering from the league's longest game since the NFL/AFL merger in 1970 because of two lightning delays that made the matchup in Miami last 7 hours, 8 minutes from the opening kickoff to the final second ticked off.

With Mariota sidelined, the Titans actually just tied the game at 10 early in the fourth quarter. But the Dolphins answered back on Grant's gorgeous gallop.

"I love the way we responded - the way we were able to overcome the delays, to come out with energy after sitting around", Tannehill said. After Walker caught the ball, Dolphins safety T.J. McDonald came up to make the tackle and Walker's ankle got caught underneath him.

Miami answered with a 30-yard Jason Sanders field goal to increase its lead to 27-17.

Walker suffered a dislocated ankle and an associated fracture, nearly certainly ending his season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
