The Colts have claimed Whitehurst off waivers from the Titans. With Andrew Luck sidelined, Whitehurst is in line to serve in a backup capacity for the Colts behind Matt Hasselbeck, who is slated to fill in for Luck.
The Titans have waived Whitehurst. The move frees up a roster spot for the activation of running back David Cobb, while Marcus Mariota (who has recovered from a knee issue) and Zach Mettenberger remain on hand to handle the Titans' QB duties.
Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was atrocious Week 17 against the Colts, completing 12 of 28 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in a 27-10 loss. Whitehurst averaged 2.6 yards per pass attempt. Appearing in seven games due to injuries to Jake Locker and Zach Mettenberger, Whitehurst completed under 57 percent of his throws for seven touchdowns against two interceptions. He's slated to return in 2015 as a backup.
The Titans declared quarterback Zach Mettenberger (shoulder), defensive back Jemea Thomas, linebacker Dontay Moch, offensive tackles Taylor Lewan (ankle) and Terren Jones (concussion), wideout Rico Richardson and defensive end Ropati Pitoitua inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts. Quarterback Charlie Whitehurst will make his second straight start.
Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst tossed one touchdown on Thursday against the Jaguars. 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.
