Titans QB Jake Locker (right hand) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Locker is expected to make his return this week, though we’ll continue to monitor his progress. His return would probably be good news for Justin Hunter and Delanie Walker, who have both suffered in his absence.

Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. It looks like Greene is on his way back. His return might put a dent in Bishop Sankey’s weekly upside. The Titans have stubbornly given him carries when he’s active.

The Titans signed RB Antonio Andrews from their practice squad to their active 53-man roster.

Signed by the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Western Kentucky in 2014, Andrews carried 21 times for 137 yards (6.5 avg.), including a long of 47 during the Titans' 2014 preseason.

Andrews was released on final cuts and subsequently signed to the team's practice squad after he cleared waivers.

The Titans are hoping to get starting QB Jake Locker back from his thumb sprain in time to play next week against the Texans.

Locker practiced early last week, but was then limited, and he didn’t play yesterday.

“I would expect him being able to go next week,” HC Ken Whisenhunt said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean. “But until we get out there and practice, I don’t know that for sure.”

Locker practiced Wednesday, but was then limited the rest of the week with soreness in his throwing hand.

“Obviously you worry about him turning the ball over and putting one on the ground if you miss a snap or do something with ball handling,” Whisenhunt said of the decision to park him. “That’s ultimately what made the decision.”

It’s possible Washington HC Jay Gruden be choosing next week's staring QB from three -- Kirk Cousins, Colt McCoy … and maybe Robert Griffin III.

“You would like to have your decision made as soon as possible,” Gruden said. “Now, you throw Robert into the mix. Robert has a chance to practice on Wednesday and we have to see where he is. See where he is health-wise, and from there I will make a decision from watching the tape of what I’m going to do.”

Fantasy Impact:

The story goes on to say that if Griffin can prove to the medical staff and Gruden that he’s ready to return from the dislocated left ankle he sustained in Week 2, Gruden’s decision would be a rather straightforward one. He’s already said Griffin will reclaim his No. 1 status when he’s medically cleared. Griffin worked out on the field prior to Sunday's game, dropping back, eluding an imaginary pass rush, sprinting on bootlegs and firing on-target passes. If Griffin is not cleared to play, the story added, that’s when Gruden will have a tougher choice between Cousins or McCoy. McCoy replaced Cousins at the start of the second half against the Titans after Cousins committed his second turnover of the game and 11th this season. Washington takes on a red-hot Dallas team whose defense has been playing better than expected this season. Since the game is Monday night, things could get tricky if you're planning on playing any of the three.

Titans QB Jake Locker (right hand, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 7. The Tennessee beat writers seem to think that Charlie Whitehurst will get the start. Even if Locker starts, he isn’t a trustworthy play despite the nice matchup.

Titans RB Shonn Greene (hamstring, doubtful) missed practice all week and is doubtful for Week 7. If Greene remains out, which seems very likely, then Bishop Sankey should continue to see extra work as the team’s feature back. His matchup against the Redskins isn’t favorable, but he’s usable as a flex/RB3 this week.

Redskins Beat: Team could put RGIII on fast track back

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

The number one thing to consider is the health of Robert Griffin III’s injured ankle.

Doing agility drills and even sprinting full speed in a straight line across the field have a much lower level of stress on an ankle than does playing in an actual NFL game. From the outside we can’t tell if Griffin’s left ankle is ready to withstand the rigors of preparing for and playing in an NFL game at this point.

If he’s not, he will remain sidelined regardless of how well or how poorly Cousins is playing. But if he can take some practice snaps without risking any sort of a setback to the ankle, it would not be surprising to see him doing some limited work in practice this week.

It seems unrealistic to think that Griffin will be able to play this Sunday against the Titans, five weeks after the injury. But if he can get some practice in this week and ramp it up next week, Griffin could play against Dallas.

Please note the “ifs” and “coulds” there. It’s a very fluid situation. But it’s possible that Griffin’s return was once on a slow roll and it’s now on the fast track. We will see how things develop.

Fantasy Impact:

It turns out Griffin could get individual reps this week and perhaps team reps the following week, according to ESPN's John Keim. That could put him on track for a Monday night game with Dallas in Week 8, which kind of matches what the story above talks about. For what it's worth, Washington has a Week 10 bye.
