NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota will return to the starting lineup Sunday to face the New Orleans Saints.

Mariota has missed the Titans previous two games with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Mariota's injury occurred on a hit from Miami's Olivier Vernon, who was penalized for roughing the passer.

Mariota will wear a brace to protect the knee, but interim coach Mike Mularkey said he isn't concerned about any issues with his quarterback's mobility.

The Titans will be missing wide receiver Kendall Wright and cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson on Sunday. Wright has a sprained MCL and Wreh-Wilson has a hamstring injury.

Cornerback Jason McCourty hasn't practiced this week due to a groin injury. The Titans are expected to test him to see if he can play Sunday.
