Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota hurt his elbow Sunday against Miami and eventually had to leave the game. Mariota said he couldn’t feel his hand after the injury. But he looked okay at practice this afternoon, and it appears he will be ready to play Sunday against Houston. Offensive lineman Taylor Lewan however is still in the team’s concussion protocol.

Said Mariota:”I’m feeling pretty good. Uh. Kind of taking it one day at a time, but was able to go through practice today and felt pretty good.”
Said head coach Mike Vrabel:”Taylor was not here. he came in. He saw Todd this morning. Sent him home. Told him to go rest and relax. So we haven’t ruled him out.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
