News: Whitehurst's teammate, Zach Mettenberger, will start Sunday's game against the Texans, the Titans' official site reports. Impact: Meanwhile, Jake Locker is slated to slot in as the team's No. 2 QB behind Mettenberger, thus relegating Whitehurst to third-string duties, assuming the health of his fellow signal-callers.(RotoWire, )

News: Whitehurst completed 17-of-26 passes for 160 yards with two touchdowns and one interception Sunday against Washington. Impact: Whitehurst connected with eight different receivers, including touchdowns to wideouts Kendall Wright and Derek Hagan. He has now thrown for two touchdowns in two of the last three games, though he's also failed to reach 200 passing yards in more than one game this season. Jake Locker is expected to return from his wrist injury next Sunday against the Texans, which would relegate Whitehurst back to the bench.(RotoWire, )

News: With Jake Locker (thumb) inactive for Sunday's game against Washington, Whitehurst will start at quarterback. Zach Mettenberger will serve as the backup. Impact: The Washington defense has been especially porous lately, coughing up 11 passing scores in its last four games. If you're desperate for a starter in a standard league or looking for a second guy in a two-QB format, Whitehurst could be a decent sleeper option.(RotoWire, )

News: Whitehurst took the majority of the reps during the open portion of practice Friday and the signs point to him starting again on Sunday against Washington, The Tennessean reports. Impact: Jake Locker (thumb) is listed as questionable and was able to participate in portions of Friday's practice, but he spent most of the time looking on as Whitehurst took the snaps. The Titans said they will not make a final decision about a starter until Sunday. If he gets the nod, Whitehurst wouldn't be a highly recommended play, but you could do worse if you're desperate for a starter. The Washington defense is especially vulnerable to touchdowns through the air, surrendering a whopping 11 passing scores in its last four games.(RotoWire, )

News: Whitehurst completed 17 of 28 passes for 233 yards in Tennessee's victory over Jacksonville. Impact: In his sixth career start, Whitehurst topped 200 yards for the first time in his nine-year career.(STATS, 10:35am)

News: Whitehurst, starting in place of the injured Jake Locker (thumb), completed 17-of-28 passes for a career-high 233 yards Sunday against the Jaguars. Impact: While he failed to throw a touchdown for the first time in his three games in relief of Locker, Whitehurst has been better than expected and has done a good job of not turning the ball over (one interception and zero lost fumbles). Locker was questionable coming into the game, but was unable to practice this week, so it's unclear just how close he really was to playing. If he misses another week of practice, Whitehurst will likely be under center in Week 7 at Washington, who are ranked 23rd in passing yards allowed this season, but have allowed 11 passing touchdowns, the fourth-most in the NFL.(RotoWire, )

News: Whitehurst is starting Sunday's game against the Jaguars in place of Jake Locker, who is inactive due to a thumb injury. Impact: Locker was questionable coming into the game, but was unable to practice all week, which left Whitehurst to get plenty of first-team reps leading up to Sunday. Whitehurst has been pretty good in relief of Locker so far this season and heads into Sunday with a great matchup against a Jaguars defense that is giving up 308.8 passing yards per game this season, while also giving up 12 touchdowns through the air.(RotoWire, )

News: Whitehurst is expected to start Sunday against Jacksonville, the Tennessean reports. Impact: Jake Locker (thumb) is officially listed as questionable, but he did not practice Friday and seems to be closer to doubtful. Whitehurst has been sneaky good in relief of Locker this year, completing 25-of-44 passes for 371 yards and three scores with just one interception. With a juicy matchup against Jacksonville's awful pass defense on tap, Whitehurst is an appealing sleeper this week if you're in the market for a quarterback. Opposing passers are averaging 330 yards and 2.4 touchdowns against the Jags this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Whitehurst took over Sunday for an injured Jake Locker. Impact: Whitehurst went in after Locker hurt his right hand in the second quarter against the Cleveland Browns. Locker returned for the second half without his shoulder pads and a with cap on his head. (STATS, 3:26pm)
