Marcus Mariota injures elbow in Titans' loss to Miami Dolphins

DAVIE, Fla. - There's no such thing as a normal season opener for the Miami Dolphins in recent years. Adding to that were a couple of two hour weather delays, putting a damper on developing any kind of rhythm in the game.

Six Dolphins players and coach Adam Gase mentioned the word "trust" when describing the impact Tannehill's return has on the team. They followed the same practice before preseason games.

Marcus Mariota #8 of the Tennessee Titans throws in the first quarter of the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on January 13, 2018 in Foxborough, Massachusetts. In 2017, he played 16 games and racked up 807 receiving yards to go with three touchdowns.

Linebacker Lawrence Timmons went AWOL on the eve of the opener, and offensive line coach Chris Foerster resigned at midseason after a video appeared to show him snorting white powder. But it wasn't just me, it was a total team effort.

The biggest issue with Sunday's delays, Gase said, was not knowing how long they would last.

"I know he has our back", Stills said.

Lightning forced a pair of delays in Sunday's freaky Dolphins-Titans game that turned out to be the longest game in National Football League history.

"Wild game", Tannehill tweeted Monday.

"We'll be flexible enough to use any personnel that we think will help us win". But at least they've gotten to see history.

Dolphins Pro Bowl safety Reshad Jones grabbed two interceptions, the second one thwarting a deep Titans drive that could have tied the score 24-24. "I was just trying to make him aware of it. We'll address it, we'll handle it and we'll make changes if we have to".

Unfortunately, it was also a game marred by significant injuries.

"I left a lot out there", Tannehill said. "Whenever my number gets called, I'm going to try to do my best".

The Dolphins received an up-and-down return from QB Ryan Tannehill following a torn ACL last season. On game day Gase chose Osweiler for the No. 2 job over David Fales, who was inactive, but the pecking order could change.

"Being able to see him on the practice squad previous year and see what he did in Houston in his time there practicing against us and some of the stuff that he did was excited to be able to get him and tell (general manager) Jon (Robinson) that this is somebody that we think can help us", Vrabel said. "I like both those guys".
