Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said Monday, Nov. 11, he is hopeful the players will rally around QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will take over as the starting quarterback again with QB Jake Locker (foot) done for the season. QB Rusty Smith will serve as the backup, although Munchak did not rule out signing another quarterback.
Huddle Up: Fitzpatrick is 0-2 as the Titans' starter and has thrown for 3 TDs and 4 interceptions this season, but he has faced some tough defenses in the Chiefs, Seahawks and Jets. Don't overlook his mobility though as he has rushed for 94 yards and 2 TDs.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the team hasn't decided on a starting quarterback in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers between QBs Jake Locker (hip, knee) and Ryan Fitzpatrick. 'We haven't decided yet. We're not really leaning any way,' Munchak said. 'Jake is doing well. He did everything today we wanted him to do. Now, we'll spend some time with him and talk as an offense and decide what is the best thing to do for Sunday.' General manager Ruston Webster said he's optimistic that Locker can play Sunday.
Huddle Up: This will likely come down to a gametime decision. Luckily for owners, neither Titans' quarterback has a ton of fantasy value, so it's not going to be a major downgrade for Tennessee's offense if Fitzpatrick starts over Locker.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hip, knee) isn't expected to play in Week 7 despite returning to limited practice Wednesday, Oct. 16. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to make his third straight start. Locker took part in some quarterback drills, seven-on-seven workouts and took a few snaps. Head coach Mike Munchak said Locker's knee injury is more serious than his hip at this time.
Huddle Up: It looks like we'll have to wait another week or two to get Jake Locker back, which downgrades the skill players this week.

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he is embracing the backup role with the team. "I wanted to find a nice role for me to come in and more than likely help a young guy," Fitzpatrick said. "I thought that would be something that was important to look for and for me a great opportunity to come in. For me, (it's) a great opportunity to come in and help Jake. I don't know Jake at all, but I want to be there for him and be ready to play if anything happens."
Huddle Up: Fitz had his run as a starter in Buffalo; now he's ready for a long career holding a clipboard and helping Jake Locker with his Sudoku.

The Cincinnati Bengals could show interest in free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Bills) if he is not able to find a starting job.
Huddle Up: With the starting options looking rather slim for Fitz, who fizzled out in Buffalo, Cincy likely will starting looking better by the day.

Updating a previous report, the Buffalo Bills have released QB Ryan Fitzpatrick after he rejected a restructured contract that the team offered him.
Huddle Up: The Bills are officially in the QB market as Fitzpatrick's release leaves journeyman Tavaris Jackson, Wildcat specialist Brad Smith and second-year man Aaron Corp as the only quarterbacks on the roster. College prospect Ryan Nassib, who played for new Bills coach Doug Marrone at Syracuse, now is even more of a draft possibility for Buffalo.
