NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans quarterback Jake Locker is listed as questionable for Tennessee’s game Sunday with the Indianapolis Colts.
Locker was limited in Friday’s open portion of practice, as he threw a few passes to test out his injured right wrist. He didn’t practice Wednesday and Thursday after hurting his wrist in a 33-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
“It was encouraging that we got to see Jake to a little bit, but that’s what we anticipated,” Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “Hopefully, it will progress more, and we’ll see what we can do tomorrow and that will determine a lot.”
Charlie Whitehurst would get the call if Locker can’t play Sunday. Whitehurst hasn’t started a game since 2011 with the Seattle Seahawks. Whitehurst appeared in two games last year with the San Diego Chargers, but he didn’t attempt a pass.
Tight end Delanie Walker also was limited in practice and will be listed as questionable for the game as well. Walker and Whisenhunt both expressed optimism about the tight end’s chances of playing. Walker hurt his shoulder against the Bengals.
“I feel good,” Walker said. “I felt like it was (going to) be good enough for me this Sunday coming up. I never had a doubt in my mind.”
Whisenhunt said Walker has made “a lot of progress” and added that “just to make sure he doesn’t have a flare-up, we’ll list him as questionable.”
Defensive end Ropati Pitoitua (knee) and tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) were out of practice Friday and are listed as doubtful. Linebacker James Anderson (thigh) is probable.
