Marc Mariani could miss the 2012 season after breaking his leg during the Titans' preseason game Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Marc Mariani may miss the 2012 season after suffering a broken leg during Thursday's preseason game between the Tennessee Titans and the Arizona Cardinals. The wide receiver has already undergone successful surgery, according to Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean, though that's little consolation. Replays show Mariani's leg snapping near the calf with 9:40 to go in the first quarter. He lay on the ground for several minutes while a team doctor affixed an air cast.

Analysis: Mariani's injury won't make much of an impact in standard leagues. He was well down the depth chart, so don't expect the Titans' passing game to skip a beat. Mariani is a talented return man, however, so those in leagues with a heavy emphasis on special teams should take note. The injury does amplify the impact of Kenny Britt's potential suspension a bit. The Titans could look to add depth if things go from bad to worse.
