TItans unveil injury report for Houston game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker was a full participant in practice Friday and will be probable for Week 8 against the Texans. Locker will likely serve as a backup to Zach Mettenberger on Sunday.

Whisenhunt claims Titans QB Locker handling demotion well


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Ken Whisenhunt has admitted that deposed Titans starting quarterback Jake Locker is unhappy about losing his job to rookie Zach Mettenberger.

Whisenhunt, however, told The Tennesseean that Locker is handling the news well. "I love Jake Locker," Whisenhunt added.

Locker has missed three games this season due to injury and has been unimpressive when on the field. He has completed just 58 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and four interceptions.


Titans coach proclaims QB Mettenberger his Sunday starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) What was suspected is now official: Zach Mettenberger is set to start at quarterback for the Titans against Houston on Sunday. Jake Locker will serve as his backup.

That news was announced Thursday by Ken Whisenhunt. Locker had been dealing with a thumb injury and Whisenhunt had previously claimed he would regain the starting position when healthy. But his apparent availability to play against the Texans could mean that Mettenberger has overtaken him.

Also in the mix had been veteran Charlie Whitehurst, who started in Locker's absence and completed 60.2 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and two interceptions.

Mettenberger played briefly in Week 4 at Indianapolis and connected on two of five attempts for 17 yards while throwing an interception.


Report: Titans plan to start QB Zach Mettenberger vs. Texans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) The Titans are planning to start rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger against the Texans Sunday, The Tennessean reports.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that the plan was to have Jake Locker (thumb) regain the starting job when healthy, and the former first-round pick was limited in practice Wednesday. If Mettenberger has already been notified that he'll start, as the report suggests, it could mean Whisenhunt has changed his mind on Locker, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Locker has completed 58 percent of his passes while averaging 6.8 yards per attempt and throwing four touchdowns and four interceptions in four starts. Backup Charlie Whitehurst has also played four games while starting three times, completing 60.2 percent of his passes while averaging 7.8 yards per attempt and throwing five touchdowns and two interceptions.


Jake Locker improving, but coach not ready to name him Week 8 starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Locker was not available to the media on a Wednesday for the first time this season, per The Tennessean.

"I figured we'd have a little more clarity tomorrow after (Jake) practicing today, so that's why (Jake wasn't available). Does that make sense?,'' Whisenhunt said. "He did pretty much everything. He was limited because I don't want it to flare up tomorrow and be an issue. But he did a lot today. He did a good part of practice."

Jake Locker can't catch a break


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) After missing Week 4 with an injury to his right wrist, Titans quarterback Jake Locker got off to a great start Week 5 against Cleveland, looking much like the player who got so much attention on the waiver wire after Week 1 with two touchdowns, one through the air and one on the ground. But as has been so common throughout his career, an injury ended his day early. He spent the entire second half on the sidelines, his throwing hand heavily wrapped after he smacked it on a defender's helmet with about five minutes to go in the second quarter.

Whether or not this injury sidelines him for the next several weeks, it's another reminder not to put too much stock into Locker as a sleeper. His particular style of play (he's always been the scrambling sort) seems to invite injury while also stunting his development, which contributed to his performance in Weeks 2 and 3. What results is an inconsistent passer who you can't trust to make it through four quarters.

Locker was almost knocked out earlier in the game when he took a blow to the head after crossing the goal line on his 11-yard touchdown run. You're playing with fire every time you use him. So next time you feel the urge because of his matchups or whatever else, stop and ask yourself if you're being too cute.
