NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Marcus Mariota is on the road to recovery Wednesday after surgery on a torn fibula.

The Titans issued a statement that said the procedure, which was performed by Dr. Bob Anderson, was completed late Wednesday afternoon and “considered a success.”

The quarterback had surgery after suffering an injury Saturday when the team faced off against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The quarterback is expected to be in recovery for the next four to five months. Head coach Mike Mularkey is hopeful he will be a part of some of the Titans OTAs.
