    With Clipboard Jesus resting (what has it been six days?) with a hand injury, the Titans might be down to just two quarterbacks Saturday night.

    But even if Jake Locker and Zach Mettenberger could handle the load with Charlie Whitehurst out, the Titans do have another option.

    According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean, wide receiver Kendall Wright would be the emergency quarterback if it ever got to that point.

    I’d put Kendall back there in the shotgun and let him run around with it,” Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “He can throw it, too.”

    Wright was a high school quarterback in Texas, and sounded excited about the chance.

    “I’d be ready,” he said. “If he needed me to do that, I’d do it immediately for him, preseason game, regular season game, any game. … And I think I’d be pretty good back there. I think I could make something happen.”

    Whitehurst is apparently dealing with a pinkie finger injury, since that’s what has been taped since last Friday’s game. He hasn’t talked to reporters, and there’s no sense that it’s a long-term injury.

    He could probably rise and be fine in a few days, but in case they need him this weekend, Wright will be ready for the call.

    he would not even be a DI college QB. This being the case, we might as well run the Wildcat for the remainder of the game.

    Fantastic idea lets run the wildcat with our best WR and expose him to a ton of hits.

    Saw this on twitter earlier but didn't think it would be JCBRAVE thread approved. I guess PFT thought otherwise.

    This is a worst case scenario.

    If it came to that we would have bigger problems on our hands than the off chance Wright gets hurt going rover as QB.

    Edit: Regular season of course.

    Preseason I would put in the 5th string LB from South Northern Iowa State and tell him this is his chance to be a star.

    Damien Williams used to be our emergency QB ... I guess they like WRs to do it.

    Personally, I would choose Pollard. I'm sure he would welcome all the blitzers and try to take them head on

    Yet again. Bringing him up for no reason. And yet it's the CJ and VY haters who say only the nutswingers keep bringing them up. If you want this forum to move on from these players. Quit bringing them up.
