Locker (thumb) is inactive for Sunday's game against Washington. Charlie Whitehurst will start for the Titans, with Zach Mettenberger serving as the backup.

Locker was limited in practice all week, and it became clear near the end of the week that Whitehurst was likely to get the start in this game. We'll track Locker's status closely leading up to next week's matchup with Houston.

Although Locker (questionable, thumb) has not been ruled out of Sunday's game against Washington, all signs point to Charlie Whitehurst starting at quarterback, The Tennessean reports.

Locker was a limited participant in Friday's practice, but he spent most of the time watching as Whitehurst took the majority of the snaps. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team will not make a final decision on a quarterback until Sunday, though fantasy owners should probably go ahead and make alternate plans if you were hoping to start Locker this week. We should receive confirmation one way or another when the Titans release their inactive list before Sunday's game.

Locker (right thumb) was limited at Friday's practice and will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated after practice Friday that Locker is making progress, but Wyatt relays that Charlie Whitehurst saw the bulk of the work during the open portion of Friday's session, which suggests that there's a solid shot that he'll draw another start at QB in Locker's place for the Titans this weekend.

Locker (right thumb) was limited at Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

Per John Glennon of the Tennessean, coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated that Locker is progressing, but Glennon also notes that Charlie Whitehurst took the bulk of the team's QB snaps during the open portion of Thursday's practice. At this stage, Locker's Week 7 status remains unclear, though hopefully what he is able to do at Friday's practice will add some clarity to the situation in advance of Sunday's game against Washington.

Locker (right thumb) returned to practice on Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

The report notes that during the media access portion of Wednesday's practice, Locker split QB reps with Charlie Whitehurst. While Locker expressed optimism with regard to his chances of playing Sunday against Washington, coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated that it's too early to say whether or not Locker, who was limited at practice Wednesday, will draw Sunday's starting assignment, noting that it remains to be seen how the QB responds to the work that he was able to put in.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated Monday that Locker's (right thumb) Week 7 status remains unclear, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

While Whisenhunt reiterated that Locker remains the Titans' starter when healthy, at this stage the QB's status for Sunday's game against Washington is uncertain. In place of Locker in Week 6, Charlie Whitehurst threw for 233 yards in the team's 16-14 win over the Jaguars.

Locker (right thumb) missed practice again Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

What Locker is able to do at practice Friday will be telling with regard to his Week 6 availability, though at this stage his status for Sunday's game against the Jaguars is cloudy. If Locker is unable to suit up this weekend, Charlie Whitehurst would presumably draw the start at QB for the Titans on Sunday.
