    Marcus Mariota says his shoulder is feeling good and that a decision will made in the next few days about whether he will throw during the NFL combine.

    Mariota was back in North Texas on Monday night to receive the Davey O'Brien Award that goes to the nation's top quarterback.

    The black-tie awards dinner was held in downtown Fort Worth, about 20 minutes from the stadium where exactly five weeks earlier he sprained his right (throwing) shoulder in Oregon's loss to Ohio State in the first College Football Playoff championship game.

    The Heisman Trophy winner said he's looking forward to throwing in Indianapolis if he's able to do that.

    Mariota graduated from Oregon in December and has been working out in the San Diego area.
