The final game of the 2018 regular season will be the Indianapolis Colts vs. the Tennessee Titans with a wildcard spot in the playoffs on the line. Unfortunately for the Titans, star QB Marcus Mariota is not a lock to be a part of that game.

According to Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, Mariota is currently dealing with a stinger. It is unknown at this time if Mariota will be good to go for the Colts game.

Mariota was unable to finish the Titans' Saturday night game against the Washington Redskins.

Blaine Gabbert came off the bench and helped lead the Titans to a 25-16 comeback win in the game.

The Titans would certainly prefer to stick with Mariota, who has shown improvement over last season when they made the playoffs.

The 25-year-old QB is on pace for a career high in completion percentage (68.9%).

Mariota missed Week 2 of the NFL season due to an injury and did not start in Week 3 in a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

If Mariota has to miss Sunday's game against the Colts, it will be a tough ask for Blaine Gabbert to out-duel Colts QB Andrew Luck.

However, Gabbert is 2-0 as a starter in 2018. Though Mariota played the majority of the QB snaps in one of those wins.
