Titans Add Free Agent QB Brandon Weeden

Marcus Mariota suffered a hamstring injury that has him reportedly "day-to-day" heading into NFL Week 5.

Texas at Iowa State
Chris Warren III added a rushing touchdown for the Longhorns (2-2, 1-0), who improved to 13-2 against the Cyclones (2-2, 0-1). The Red Raiders closed out non-conference play with a 27-24 not-as-close-as-the-score-indicates victory at Houston.

Weeden (6-3, 230), who has started 25 games in his career, gives the team insurance at the position heading into Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Despite optimism surrounding the injury, the Titans have exercised caution by signing another "quarterback" to the roster in the form of journeyman Brandon Weeden.

Mularkey added that the Titans will have plans for both Cassel and Mariota for this week and they may wait until as late as Sunday to name their starter. Weeden has started 25 games in five National Football League season, owns a 31:30 touchdown to interception ratio, 76.0 passer rating and 6-19 #QBWinz record. To make room on the roste they waived linebacker Josh Carraway. Mariota now has a passer rating of 79.8 with three touchdown passes and three interceptions, and he has completed 66 of 110 for 792 yards.

Victims in El Capitan rockfall Wednesday are from Great Britain
Sixteen people have been killed and more than 100 people have been hurt by rockfalls since park records began in 1857. It had been 18 years since the last rockfall-related fatality in Yosemite National Park, officials said.

The Titans have also done some shuffling on the practice squad. At Chattanooga, Board played in 51 games, with 47 starts, and caught 146 passes for 2,032 yards and 10 touchdowns. And if Mariota is deemed healthy enough for that role, he would be a better option than a healthy Cassel.
