Jake Locker QB TEN 2 Months

Locker (right thumb) was a full practice participant Friday and is probable for Sunday's game against the Texans, the Tennessean reports.

Assuming no setbacks with his thumb, Locker is thus in line to suit up Sunday and serve as Zach Mettenberger' backup.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Thursday that Locker (thumb) will serve as the Titans' No. 2 QB behind Zach Mettenbeger on Sunday against the Texans, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

With Locker evidently healthy enough to suit up as the team's No. 2 quarterback this week, the move to Mettenbeger is thus being made in the hopes of sparking the 2-5 squad's offense. Per coach Ken Whisenhunt, Locker would have an opportunity to play if Mettenberger suffers an injury going forward, which implies that the QB switch is not viewed as a temporary one.

Though Locker (thumb) practiced Wednesday, Zach Mettenberger is in line to start for the Titans in Sunday's game against the Texans, The Tennessean reports.

Locker seemed likely to start Sunday as long as he made it through practice this week without setback, but it appears the Titans want to give Mettenberger a chance to show what he can do. The Titans have not officially announced who will get the start Sunday, but expect them to provide further details sometime soon.

Locker (thumb) will be listed as limited at Wednesday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

With neither Locker or Charlie Whitehurst available to speak with the media Wednesday, coach Ken Whisenhunt indicated that there should be more clarity with regard to the Titans' Week 8 QB situation on Thursday.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Locker (thumb) threw the ball well Tuesday and is improving, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

Although he was inactive again Sunday, Locker was able to practice in a limited capacity leading up to Week 7, prompting Whisenhunt to say he expects the quarterback "to be able to go" this week against Houston. Whisenhunt then expressed a similar sentiment Monday, saying the Titans need a spark and that he hopes Locker will be able to play this Sunday, but the team will wait and see how he feels Wednesday before thinking about returning him to full practice.

Locker (right thumb) is slated to throw on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports.

The Titans will then see how Locker responds on Wednesday, but the hope remains that the QB could be available for this coming Sunday's contest against the Texans.

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.
