Tennessee quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is still taking the majority of the reps with the first team and it appears he'll get one more start before Jake Locker returns to the lineup.Fantasy Spin:Whitehurst doesn't hold much value for fantasy owners having yet to crack the 240 passing yard mark in any game this season.

Report: Rift Between Jake Locker and Ken Whisenhunt Since After Browns Game

There is a report that Ken Whisenhunt hasn't talked to Jake Locker since team meeting after the Titans played the Browns. So it turns out tat Paul Gallant was right about the Tennessee Titans starting Zach Mettenberger on Sunday.  I, like many others, was skeptical of his report.  My apologies to him for that (he will certainly sleep better tonight now that I have apologized to him). Gallant said tonight on this radio show that there has been a rift between Jake Locker and Ken Whisenhunt dating back to the days after the Browns game. In fact, Gallant says that Whiz hasn't talked to...

Jake Locker Practices but Doesn't Talk to the Media

Titans QB Jake Locker was back on the practice field today, but he skipped his usual Wednesday media session. Jake Locker has talked to the media every Wednesday this season according to Jim Wyatt.  Locker even talked on Wednesdays in the weeks where it was pretty clear that he wasn't going to play because of injury.  Today was different.  Today neither Locker nor Charlie Whitehurst were made available to talk to the media. Ken Whisenhunt said Locker will talk to the media tomorrow when there is more clarity about his situation, yet he was a full participant in practice today- at least...

Joseph: Texans have to put Monday’s meltdown behind them

The Texans have surrendered 13 touchdown passes. Only four teams have allowed fewer. The Titans, who host the Texans on Sunday, have thrown only nine touchdown passes. They’ve scored more than 17 points only once in their last six games. Quarterback Jake Locker, who’s been out with a thumb injury, is expected to return against […]

Jake Locker Injury Update: Titans QB to Throw on Tuesday

Jake Locker Injury Update: Titans QB to Throw on Tuesday

The Tennessee Titans hope to get Jake Locker back under center this week. Ken Whisenhunt said at his weekly press conference that the Titans will have injured quarterback Jake Locker throw on Tuesday.  They will then see how his hand/thumb responds on Wednesday.  That will determine how the proceed during the week. So it sounds like we will learn a lot from Locker's participation in practice on Wednesday.  He should play if he is a full go. Whiz also reiterated that Locker is his starting quarterback when healthy.  That is all well and good for this week, but that needs to change after...

Charlie Whitehurst expected to start again for the Titans

Jake Locker made progress this week, but it sounds like his injured thumb will hold him out another week. So it sounds like we will be seeing another week with Charlie Whitehurst under center for the Titans.  That is a bit disappointing considering Jake Locker was able to throw early in the week.  Apparently he just didn't progress much throughout the week. In other injury news, Coty Sensabaugh, Taylor Thompson and Shonn Greene both missed practice again today.  They will be listed as doubtful and won't play. This is a really banged-up team that the Titans are taking to Washington.  The...

Jake Locker Injury Update: Titans QB Practices Again on Thursday

Jake Locker practiced again today, but Charlie Whitehurst got the bulk of the work.... Jake Locker was able to practice again on Thursday.  That is a good sign that his hand responded well after practicing on Wednesday.  However, reports are that Charlie Whitehurst got the bulk of the snaps in the open period of practice. What does that mean?  It is hard to say.  The media is only allowed to see part of practice.  Could Ken Whisenhunt be giving Whitehurst the bulk in that period to keep the Redskins guessing?  That is certainly possible.  We also don't know how the snaps are being...

Jake Locker Injury Update: Titans QB Returns to Practice

Jake Locker returned to practice today.  He split reps with Charlie Whitehurst, but it sounds like he will be ready to go on Sunday.  Much like two weeks ago, a lot will depend on how his thumb responds after practice today.  My guess is that he will be the starter against the Redskins if he is able to practice tomorrow. Shonn Greene, Jurrell Casey, Ropati Pitoitua, George Wilson and Taylor Thompson all missed practice today.  Pitoitua had surgery on his broken finger, but it sounds like he will play this weekend.  Casey was held out last Wednesday with a foot issue if I recall...

Jake Locker Injury Update: Titans QB Listed as Questionable

Jake Locker didn't practice for the third straight day.  It is looking like he is a long-shot to play on Sunday.  Jim Wyatt said on Twitter today that he expects Charlie Whitehurst to start against the Jaguars.  I asked Wyatt if he would throw his beloved Dodgers visor out if Locker starts, he said he would do that 2 weeks ago, and he responded that he would also throw out his car.  That is really all you need to know. The Titans were also without Shonn Greene, Taylor Thompson and Craig Stevens during the open portion of practice.  Coty Sensabaugh didn't practice, but he was doing work...

Tennessee Titans News Links: Why Not?

Tennessee Titans News Links: Why Not?

Your daily serving of Titan linkage! So the reason we are not starting Mett while Locker is out is because Charlie is playing well. While that is true, the real reason is probably that Whiz knows the switch to Mett has to be permanent and he still wants to give Jake a shot. Jake Locker, Coty, Taylor, and Craig Stevens were just a couple of the players out of practice yesterday. Paul Kuharsky talks about the confidence of Whisenhunt in calling running plays. The Titans have not played well against the Jags the last few years. So we aren't taking them lightly. Second most receiving yards...

Jake Locker Injury Update: Titans QB Misses Practice Again Thursday

Jake Locker missed his second straight day of practice today with the injured thumb.  Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said after practice that Locker threw the ball "a little bit" (according to media on hand) and the biggest issue Locker has right now is gripping the ball.  That is a pretty big issue for a quarterback. I don't work for the team, but my guess is that Locker has to practice tomorrow to have much of a chance to play.  I doubt Whiz feels very good about running Locker out there if he hasn't practiced at all during the week. The good news here is that Jurrell Casey was able to...

QB Locker misses practice

Titans quarterback hopes to play despite sore thumb NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans quarterback Jake Locker didn't practice Wednesday with a sore and swollen right thumb on his passing hand. He managed to throw some passes hopes to practice as much as possible the rest of the week. (AP) FF Today's Take: The Titans Week 6 opponent, Jacksonville, has been pretty generous to opposing quarterbacks this season. As a result, Jake Locker or Charlie Whitehurst may prove to be a useful plug and play option.

Jake Locker Injury Update: Titans QB sits out Wednesday practice

Jake Locker Injury Update: Titans QB sits out Wednesday practice

Titans QB Jake Locker sat out practice on Wednesday. He told the media after practice that he threw some and that he hopes to increase his participation in practice as the week goes along.  It is just Wednesday, but this sounds more positive than two weeks ago when it was pretty clear that he didn't have much of a chance of playing- even on that Wednesday. There were quite a few Titans that sat out practice including Jurrell Casey, Michael Roos, Coty Sensabaugh and Craig Stevens. We will learn more about those guys when Ken Whisenhunt addresses the media this afternoon.

NFL fines Browns rookie linebacker Chris Kirksey $8,268 for hit on Titans quarterback Jake Locker

NFL fines Browns rookie linebacker Chris Kirksey $8,268 for hit on Titans quarterback Jake Locker

The NFL has fined Browns rookie inside linebacker Chris Kirksey $8,268 for the forearm he delivered Sunday to the helmet of Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker, a league source confirmed for the Beacon Journal. The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the NFL has yet to announce the fine, said Kirksey will appeal. ESPN first reported the fine. Locker ran for an 11-yard touchdown with 14:41 left in the second quarter and took a couple of steps into the end zone before Kirksey hit him in the helmet with a forearm. Kirksey was flagged for a personal foul, and...
