NASHVILLE Will Fuller Jersey
, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota fully participated in Friday’s practice and is expected to start Monday night’s road game against the AFC South-leading Houston Texans.Mariota suffered a stinger Sunday in a 38-10 loss at Indianapolis and didn’t play in the second half of that game. He was limited in Wednesday and Thursday’s work but got the green light from head coach Mike Vrabel on Friday to start, barring an unforeseen setback.“He felt better,” Vrabel said. “We’ve got to keep working. … He looked good today, but that’s why you practice. You try to always improve and get better and fix the things you didn’t have right. He was not limited.”Mariota missed the first meeting between the Titans and Texans on Sept. 16 in Nashville. The Titans won that game 20-17 with backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert under center and with the help of a fake punt touchdown.While Mariota was a full participant on Friday, defensive coordinator Dean Pees was absent from the afternoon practice.Pees spent Sunday night in an Indianapolis hospital due to a medical issue. Pees returned to practice Wednesday and Thursday, but Vrabel wanted him to rest on Friday and excused him from practice.“Dean was tired today, and I asked him to go home,” Vrabel said. “I wanted him to get some rest. I’m trying to get Dean to Monday night, just like I am all the players. The plan was simply, ‘Hey, Dean Nick Martin Jersey
, why do you go get some rest? Why don’t you go get some sleep?’ That’s what I felt like was best to try to get him to the game.”Also, left tackle Taylor Lewan was out of Friday’s practice due to illness. Running back David Fluellen remains out with a knee injury. A long list of candidates, but there can be only one." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBattle Red Bloga Houston Texans communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsTexansOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Texans StoriesScheduleRosterStatsYahoo Texans NewsYahoo Texans Team PageYahoo Texans ReportYahoo Texans Depth ChartYahoo Texans TransactionsYahoo Texans PhotosOdds About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Filed under:Red Zone Play2019 Houston Texans OffseasonRed Zone Play: And The New Houston Texans General Manager Is...

Photo by Rob Carr/Getty ImagesWith the abrupt termination of the Houston Texans’ third general manager, Brian Gaine, the rumors are running rampant of what happened, why it happened, who made it happen, and how it will wrap up. Anyone following the Texans for any amount of time knows that the school age crush on the New England Patriots’ way of doing things is clear.With that, it’s no surprise many believe New England’s Director of Player Personnel Tyler Ervin Jersey
, Nick Caserio, is Houston’s main target in the search for Gaine’s replacement. Houston allegedly asked permission to interview Caserio last Friday night, but no word has leaked out whether New England has granted it as of this writing.Here’s what others are saying/writing about the Texans’ search:MMQBFormer Cleveland Brown general manager Ray Farmer was scheduled to interview with Texans’ brass this past Saturday.Martin Mayhew, the San Francisco 49ers vice president of player personnel, interviewed on Sunday. NFL.comOthers allegedly interviewing or possibly targeted, or already having done so, are ex-Oakland Raider GM Reggie McKenzie, former Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli, and a few other names that have floated through the ether. Exactly which man lands the gig will tell us a lot about new owner Cal McNair’s intent for the future of the Houston Texans.The variable in all this focuses on a rather unorthodox hire Houston made a few months ago in Jack Easterby. USA TodayMMQBConnecting all these dots seems to paint a picture of the further construction of the “Patriots South” blueprint many of us are very familiar with in the post-Gary Kubiak era Texans. However, since New England head coach Bill Belichick is arguably the most calculating man in NFL history, if he truly sees great value in Caserio Benardrick McKinney Jersey
, he’ll do everything he can to keep him in Boston—ultimately fracturing the plan to duplicate his way of doing things in H-Town. But what if Cal McNair is going in a different direction altogether? What if he’s more intent on breaking up the Boston Boys Club and has his sights on, say, Reggie McKenzie, the guy who brought Derek Carr, Khalil Mack and Marshawn Lynch to Oakland to help turn them back into a playoff contender? If that happens, it’s a good bet Bill O’Brien has been put on notice that this is his last year of excuses and J.J. Watt better get a shot at a Lombardi this year or else. No matter what happens, odds are we’ll have an outcome within a week’s time, so the new GM can be around for mini-camps, hopefully right after he locks in Jadeveon Clowney long term. In the meantime, all we can do is speculate. Here’s your chance to give us your prediction.
