    Titans return man Marc Mariani suffered a broken left leg in the first quarter of Thursday’s preseason game against the Cardinals at LP Field. The injury will end his season.

    Mariani was injured while being tackled on a punt return. He was immediately tended to on the field by trainers, who put his leg in an air cast. Mariani was taken off the field on a cart. He waved to fans as he went through the tunnel to the locker room.

    In his third NFL season, Mariani had a solid training camp as a wide receiver. His injury helps pave the way for running back/return man Darius Reynaud to secure a spot on the 53-man roster. Reynaud has performed well in the preseason, returning a punt 85 yards for a touchdown in the preseason opener at Seattle.

    This just made me sick. Mark is a great player and I wish this didn't happen to him. We were watching the game at the Village Inn, Suttons Bay and when we saw the replay of the break there was a gasp and everyone turned away. I wish Mark the best.
