According to Ian Rapoport, Dodd learned in rookie camp that he had a stress fracture in his foot. A screw was inserted during the surgery and the Titans are hopeful the rookie we'll be ready to return by training camp.

Titans' Marcus Mariota: Gains five pounds for durability
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mariota has only gained about five pounds this offseason, TitansInsider.com reports.

A previous report said Mariota played at 210 pounds as a rookie, but it turns out he was actually closer to 220. He now checks in at 225, hoping that the slight increase will help him stay healthy for 16 games. Despite finishing with a surprisingly low total of 34 carries (for 252 yards and 2 TDs) in 12 appearances, Mariota took a lot of hits last season while playing behind a shaky offensive line. The Titans responded by heavily investing in their offense during the offseason, notably adding RB DeMarco Murray, WR Rishard Matthews and C Ben Jones, then using early draft picks to select OT Jack Conklin (eighth overall) and RB Derrick Henry (45th). The team clearly plans to run the ball much more often than it did last season, but any drop in Mariota's passing volume should be offset by improved efficiency, increased rushing production and/or a bump in scoring opportunities. It would also help his cause if the team were generally more competitive, as last season's lack of carries may have partially resulted from the Titans' desire to avoid a serious injury to their franchise centerpiece during a clear rebuilding year. With the roster now decent enough to at least dream of a playoff appearance, Mariota should get to deploy his 4.52 speed a bit more often.

Titans' Jerome Cunningham: Awarded to Titans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham was claimed off waivers by the Titans.

This marks Cunningham's third team this calendar year, as the tight end was once waived by the Giants before getting the ax from the Jets on Tuesday. In nine games last season, the Southern Connecticut State product caught just eight passes for 59 yards. Now in Tennessee, Cunningham will provide depth behind Delanie Walker, Anthony Fasano, and Craig Stevens.

Titans' Marcus Mariota: Puts on some weight
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Mariota now weighs 225 pounds after playing at around 210 for most of his rookie season, Terry McCormick of TitansInsider.com reports.

Mariota weighed 222 at the 2015 combine, but he apparently dropped some pounds during training camp and/or the regular season. Weight hasn't been a big issue for him one way or the other, so he likely just added a few pounds to help with durability. He'll still be one of the fastest (4.52 40) quarterbacks in the NFL, but the Titans have maintained that they mostly want him to focus on improving his footwork and accuracy from the pocket. While that's obviously a necessary part of the position, it was surprising to see Mariota attempt just 34 rushes (for 252 yards and 2 TDs) in 12 games last season. He should be a bit more active on the ground in his sophomore campaign, though it's also possible some of his pass attempts from last year will turn into handoffs to DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. The Titans also added WR Rishard Matthews, and they hope to get much more out of both Dorial Green-Beckham and Kendall Wright; the former was a rookie last season and the latter was bogged down by injuries.

Titans' Dorial Green-Beckham: Back to full strength
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Green-Beckham (hamstring) is back at full strength, John Glennon of the Tennessean reports.

Green-Beckham briefly dealt with soreness in the same hamstring that bothered him last season. He didn't miss much practice time, and while the Titans did add Rishard Matthews -- in addition to RBs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry -- during the offseason, DGB will have every chance to earn a starring role as one of Marcus Mariota's leading weapons.
