Titans' Mariota (elbow) questionable to return in Miami

  • Marcus Mariota injures elbow in Titans' loss to Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills runs in a touchdown in the fourth quarter against the Tennessee Titans.

"Just couldn't feel my fingers", Mariota said.

Miami outlasted Tennessee - and more than four hours in lightning delays - to earn the 27-20 victory in a bout that lasted seven hours and 10 minutes.

The most glaring issue, of course, is how the team will find a way to overcome the loss of tight end Delanie Walker, who is nearly certainly done for the season after suffering a gruesome ankle injury late in the contest.

With Delanie Walker expected to be sidelined for the foreseeable future, tight ends Jonnu Smith and Luke Stocker are in line to see more snaps going forward.

Del Potro through to U.S. Open final after Nadal retires
Nadal would figure to have a tougher time in his fourth meeting with del Potro in the last five Grand Slam tournaments. Nadal's challenge looked doomed even as early as the first set, feeling the injury after just four games, he admitted.

And when the game finally returned from the second lengthy weather delay, Fox wasn't quite ready to return in full form. The 98-yard drive was Miami's longest since 1989.

Hurricane Irma caused the postponement of the first game, forcing Miami to play 16 weeks in a row.

Tannehill completed 20 of 28 for 230 yards with two touchdowns to receiver Kenny Stills and two interceptions during the Titans win, his first start since December 2016. He returned to the contest, but things didn't get any better. The teams went to the locker room during the delay and stayed on the field for halftime, which was shortened to three minutes. About 10,000 fans remained at the finish.

Jakeem Grant scored on a 102-yard kickoff return, Stills caught a 75-yard touchdown pass and Jones returned his second interception of the game 54 yards. Lewan sprawled face down on the turf, then suddenly sprang to his feet, and players exchanged words and shoves.

In the third quarter, Mariota took a hit on his right hand after being knocked down by Dolphins defensive lineman William Hayes.
