Which QB is suspended for game against Tennessee?
This is not a news item.
This is just a fact check of the suspension of the Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, who will not be suspended after the team’s 26-20 loss to the Tennessee Vols on Sunday.
Mariota had three interceptions and was sacked six times, with Tennessee leading by four points late in the fourth quarter.
He completed only 13 of 29 passes for 128 yards, with two of those interceptions coming on third-and-goal from the Tennessee 36 with 11:31 left in the game.
Tennessee, which finished with just two first downs, eventually moved the ball down the field to set up a field goal by Jake Locker, but Mariota’s pass was intercepted by safety Corey Graham.
Mitch Trubisky is suspended five games for his hit on Matt Cassel on Sunday night in the Tennessee-Georgia game.
The hit was called as a false start, but Trubik is not the first quarterback to get a flag in the last three weeks.
Last year, he got a four-game suspension for a hit on Jake Latham during the season opener against Kansas State.
Trubisky has made it clear he’s not willing to put himself in a position where he’s in the same situation as the Saints’ Drew Brees, who was fined $50,000 for his second-quarter hit on Cam Newton in Week 1.
He has not been fined for a play he has been accused of making, which has included two interceptions.
Trublik is not in the Saints offense, which is a far cry from the Saints, who have three quarterbacks in the top 10 of total pass attempts in the NFL.
Brees has two interceptions in the past two weeks, and Trubek has not thrown a touchdown pass in the two games.
The Panthers are 2-2, but the Vols are 2 -1.
