Titans QB Charlie Whitehurst tosses one score on Thursday
Whitehurst completed 24 of 35 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown. He did not turn the ball over during the contest. Whitehurst looked to attack Jacksonville down the field, averaging 8.2 yards per completion. This sometimes came back to bite him, as he wound up taking four sacks. Whitehurst's only score came on the team's first drive. On the 13th play of the drive, Whitehurst found running back Leon Washington for the 8 yard score. Whitehurst also picked up 12 rushing yards on three attempts.
Depending on the team's injury situation at quarterback, Whitehurst may be in line to start next week against the Colts.
Jaguars K Josh Scobee scores three points vs. Titans
It was the third time this season Scobee wasn't called upon to attempt a field goal. Thursday's win marked just the second time this season Scobee kicked three extra points in a game. He'll travel to Houston to face the Texans in Week 17.
Jaguars WRs quiet in Week 16 win vs. Titans
The Jaguars managed to pick up just 124 receiving yards on the day and Lee was responsible for more than half of that total while seeing six targets.
Jaguars RB Jordan Todman sprints for 62-yard TD Week 16
Todman also chipped in five yards on two receptions. The game-breaking score came on a play where the Jaguars faked the end around to the left of the formation, and the running back found a seam on the right side of the line and outsprinted the defense to the end zone. Lead back Toby Gerhart was removed from Thursday's game with a rib issue, and it's possible Todman could find himself with an increased role in next Sunday's season finale against the Texans.
Jaguars QB Blake Bortles rushes for 50 yards, throws TD Week 16
Bortles managed his lowest completion percentage and lowest amount of passing yards despite facing a two-win team but managed to avoid turnovers while consistently finding yards on the ground, both on QB keepers and scrambles. He'll hit the road to face the Texans in Week 17.
Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (rib) will not return vs. Titans
Gerhart initially suffered the injury late in the third quarter and was deemed questionable to return, but he was able to make it back for much of the fourth quarter before being ruled out at about the two-minute warning. He finishes the Week 16 matchup with 60 yards on 13 touches as well as a one-yard touchdown.
Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (rib) cleared to return vs. Titans
Gerhart reached the end zone on a one-yard score in the third quarter and picked up one carry on the following drive before the injury was announced. He racked up 42 yards on nine carries in addition to the touchdown while also adding a seven-yard reception.
Chargers' McCoy: Philip Rivers had 'outstanding' practice Thursday
"A ball did not hit the ground in all the throws he made today," McCoy added. "Philip was Philip, so he'll be ready to roll."
Rivers was a full participant in Thursday's practice after sitting out Tuesday and Wednesday. He should be ready to roll for Saturday's matchup with the 49ers.
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald progresses to full practice Thursday
Fitzgerald has racked up 11 receptions in two games since his two-game absence but has managed just 64 yards and no touchdowns during that stretch. He's on track to resume his regular role in his team's Week 16 matchup with the Seahawks.
Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams limited Thursday
Williams has shared touches with Stepfan Taylor with Andre Ellington out for the season but has amassed 175 rushing yards on 34 carries over the last two weeks. If his knee issue keeps him out Sunday, Taylor and Marion Grice would likely handle most of the touches at the position.
