Titans QB Jake Locker is retiring.

Statement from Locker: "I am retiring from football after much reflection and discussion with my family. I will always be grateful for having had the opportunity to realize my childhood dream of playing in the NFL and for the lifelong relationships I developed because of that experience. Football has always played a pivotal role in my life and I love the game, but I no longer have the burning desire necessary to play the game for a living; to continue to do so would be unfair to the next organization with whom I would eventually sign. I realize this decision is surprising to many, but I know in my heart that it is the right decision and I look forward to spending more time with my family and pursuing other interests.”

Schefter: Titans sign WR Harry Douglas

Titans are signing former Falcons WR Harry Douglas to a 3-year deal, per source.

Fantasy Impact:

This signing is somewhat puzzling since the Titans already have a superior slot receiver in Kendall Wright. In Atlanta, Douglas performed well when called upon, but struggled in 2014 due to a foot injury.

Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) is 100 percent

Titans QB Zach Mettenberger says he's been throwing, shoulder is 100%.

Fantasy Impact:

Mettenberger averaged 272 yards, 1.8 touchdowns and 1.0 interception in the four games that he started and finished. He was also on pace for 329 yards and 1.8 TD against the Texans in Week 13 before missing nearly half the game with a shoulder sprain. He wasn’t effective against the Giants in Week 14 before re-injuring his shoulder. For the most part, what we saw was encouraging, especially since he was just a rookie. If the Titans enter the season with Mettenberger as the starter, then we can expect the solid QB2 numbers that he posted in 2014 -- he’ll be a committee and/or streaming candidate.

Titans reportedly hire Dick LeBeau to run the defense

Former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau is expected to be named assistant head coach/defense with the Titans, per sources.

Fantasy Impact:

Ray Horton ran the defense last season but hasn't been fired, so he's likely to work under LeBeau in 2015.

Titans will do their due diligence on guys like Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston, but I can't see them taking either with the No.2 pick.

Fantasy Impact:

That, of course, means the Titans may be fine with Zach Mettenberger at QB, which a few reports have indicated. Offensive line should be a focus in the offseason. RB Bishop Sankey never really got going behind the 2014 line despite being the first running back taken last spring. Having a running game will do the passing game a lot of good in 2015.

Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (right shoulder, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 17. Charlie Whitehurst is expected to start against Indianapolis this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Charlie Whitehurst will get the start in what is shaping up to be one of the worst Thursday Night Football games of all time. Kendall Wright is active after missing a couple of games with a hand injury, and apparently won’t be wearing a splint or a cast on his hand. He’s not a great start, but he’s been pretty solid when active and with Justin Hunter out, he should get plenty of targets. We prefer Nate Washington, who had a strong Week 15. The matchup against Jacksonville (#4 in WR aFPA) is not favorable.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 5:57pm

Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (right shoulder, doubtful) did not practice Wednesday. Charlie Whitehurst is expected to get the start on Thursday.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 5:57pm

Titans RB Dexter McCluster (knee, out) did not practice Wednesday. McCluster may miss the rest of the season. His absence should open up passing down snaps for Bishop Sankey and/or Leon Washington.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 5:57pm

Titans WR Kendall Wright (hand, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Wright may be able to make his return this week. He’s a tough player to trust given his hand injury and Tennessee’s quarterback problems.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014, 5:57pm

Titans TE Delanie Walker (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Walker is expected to play through the questionable tag against Jacksonville on Thursday.

Kendall Wright hopes to play Thursday

Tuesday, December 16, 2014, 8:58pm

Nashville Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans receiver Kendall Wright wants to play on Thursday against the Jaguars.

And on Tuesday, after missing the last two games with a cracked bone in his hand, he went through practice without any issues.

"My feeling is I want to play, and if it feels like I felt today, then I'll be a go,'' Wright said. "But if it hurts or gets worse, I wouldn't go out there. … I want to be able to catch, block and be a complete receiver when I am out there. That's the main thing."

Fantasy Impact:

Wright said his status remains unclear. It all depends on how he feels on Wednesday. The hand remains sore, and it hurts when he catches the football, the story said. The Titan offense is not one to trust in this time of the fantasy playoffs.

Blake Bortles out of boot, expected to start

Tuesday, December 16, 2014, 12:41pm

Jaguars.com - [Full Article]

Blake Bortles is out of his boot.

That’s a step in the right direction in terms of the Jaguars’ rookie quarterback playing Thursday, which Jedd Fisch believes Bortles will do.

Fisch, the Jaguars’ offensive coordinator, said while Bortles did not participate in the team’s light work on Monday evening, he is preparing as if Bortles will play and start against the Tennessee Titans Thursday.

“As far as I know, it’s going to be Blake,” Fisch said Tuesday as the Jaguars (2-12) prepared to play the Titans (2-12) at EverBank Field Thursday at 8:25 p.m.

“We’re going to obviously see how he practices. He did not participate (Monday), so we’ll have to see how he does today, then see how it looks today and tomorrow.

“The plan right now is to see how he feels.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Titans are ranked 19th in allowing fantasy points to QBs. Even in what is an OK matchup on paper, it's tough to trust Bortles even as a QB2 if this is your fantasy final, but it's looking like he's going to be able to play.

Blake Bortles dealing with sprained foot

Monday, December 15, 2014, 2:06pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Tennessee will be in Jacksonville to face the 2-11 Jaguars in the final Thursday night game of the year. The Titans have already beaten the Jaguars once, so another win this week would guarantee they finish ahead of Jacksonville and that they will pick no higher than second once the first round gets underway.

There’s a chance that they’ll be facing Chad Henne instead of Blake Bortles in that contest. Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that Jaguars coach Gus Bradley deemed Bortles questionable for that game because of a sprain in the middle of his right foot.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story says, Bortles played every snap in Sunday’s 20-12 loss to the Ravens and absorbed eight sacks on the way to defeat, but it wasn’t immediately apparent during the game that he suffered an injury. He’s been on the injury report in recent weeks, perhaps because of the 46 overall sacks the team’s allowed since he took over for Henne earlier this season, but not because of a foot issue.
