General News (Thu Oct 23): The Tennessee Titans have been fielding calls from teams for Nate Washington, who recently lost his starting job to Justin Hunter. Washington is in the final year of a six-year, $26.8 million contract. He is making $4.8 million this season.

Week 8: vs Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Jake Locker is 'expected' to start this game according to comments from head coach Ken Whisenhunt on Monday, but his status is pending Locker's ability to practice later in the week. If his sore thumb doesn't get aggravated, Locker could return to action for the Titans in this game. If he misses time, though, backup Charlie Whitehurst (59/98 for 764 yards passing, five TDs and two interceptions thrown over his four appearances this year) will be under center again. We're not sure a rusty Locker would be an upgrade in this game - anyways, stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News this week as the starting quarterback for this one is up in the air as of midweek. The Texans' pass D is ranked 26th in the NFL averaging 268.7 net yards allowed per game, with 13 passing scores allowed vs. six interceptions (tied for 14th in the NFL) and 13 sacks (tied-19th) generated to date. The sub-par secondary has allowed three TDs with zero interceptions to Ben Roethlisberger (24/34 for 252 net yards, with three sacks taken for -16 yards) and three TDs with one interception to Andrew Luck (25/44 for 363 net passing yards, with three sacks taken for -7 yards). J.J. Watt can't both rush the passer and cover receivers - the secondary isn't doing a very good job of covering receivers of late, either. Advantage, whichever quarterback starts for Tennessee.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs CLE (7 / 4 / 57 / 0 rec)

Its not been a good season for Nate Washington to this point, so he will have been happy to get a catch down the field at the start of this game. That catch came on a curl route short of the first down marker on Third-and-Long, but Washington still made a comfortable catch after running a crisp route. Washington caught a short curl route in the redzone to add to his first catch in the first quarter. The veteran receiver was barely used in the first half, but he was effective when targeted. To start the third quarter, Whitehurst found him with a precise downfield throw. Washington made the catch initially, but the ball bounced off his chest when he hit the ground. Two plays later, the Titans were in Third-and-Long when Washington made up for his missed opportunity by converting with a deep out route. Washington caught another pass on the final drive of the game when the Browns were playing prevent coverage.

2014 Week 6 vs JAX (2 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)

Washington's first target came in the second quarter. He was wide open underneath on a short curl route but was forced to make an athletic reception on a high pass from Whitehurst. After not being targeted to that point, Whitehurst went straight to Washington again on back-to-back plays. This pass went for a first down on a deep in route.

2014 Week 7 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Washington's first involvement in the game came in the fourth quarter. He ran a comeback route and caught a pass against tight coverage for a nine yard gain.
