Browns released QB Charlie Whitehurst.
The Clipboard Jesus could be headed to NFL heaven. Whitehurst looked as bad as ever in spot duty on Sunday, and the Browns decided they would rather see what fifth-round rookie Kevin Hogan has to offer if Cody Kessler can't go against the Titans. Whitehurst's release, of course, is a strong indication that Kessler will be ready. Now 34, Whitehurst has been an entertaining NFL presence, but never actually been good at football.

Browns QB Charlie Whitehurst (left knee) is day to day.

The Browns' No. 4 quarterback, Clipboard Jesus got hurt near the end of Sunday's loss. He played through the issue, but was limping. Our guess is that Whitehurst will be available if Cody Kessler (ribs) isn't ready, but would be limited, and cede a healthy amount of snaps to Terrelle Pryor.

Filling in for an injured Cody Kessler — who was filling in for an injured Josh McCown who was filling in for an injured Robert Griffin III — Charlie Whitehurst completed 14-of-24 passes for 182 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Cleveland's Week 5 loss to the Patriots.

Farcically, Whitehurst himself got hurt late in the fourth quarter, hyperextending his left knee. He returned after stretching it out on the sideline. Ceding snaps to gadget player Terrelle Pryor, Whitehurst looked as bad as ever despite the decent statline, routinely sailing throws. He shouldn't be on an NFL field at the age of 34. He'll likely start next week's game against the Titans, which is a major problem for all Browns skill players.

Browns signed QB Charlie Whitehurst.

The Browns have already lost QBs Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown to left shoulder injuries the first two weeks of the season, leaving third-round rookie Cody Kessler as the Week 3 starter. He's nowhere close to being NFL-ready, so it's not out of the question Whitehurst could start as soon as Week 4. To put it kindly, this is an offense to completely avoid and target with D/ST streamers.

Colts placed QB Charlie Whitehurst (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.

With Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) also out for Week 17, the Colts' starter will either be Andrew Luck (kidney) or Stephen Morris against the Titans. Morris is a second-year undrafted free agent out of Miami (FL).
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 03:43:00 PM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 9-of-14 passes for 78 yards in the Colts' Week 16 win over the Dolphins.

Whitehurst replaced "beat up from the feet up" Matt Hasselbeck in the second quarter and immediately led a touchdown drive that Frank Gore capped with a rushing TD. Whitehurst struggled to move the offense thereafter, and appeared to suffer a fourth-quarter hamstring strain. The Colts hope to have Andrew Luck (kidney) back for Week 17 against Tennessee.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 04:12:00 PM

Colts claimed QB Charlie Whitehurst off waivers from the Titans.

With Andrew Luck (kidney) sidelined 2-6 weeks, the Colts didn't have a backup behind Matt Hasselbeck. "Checkdown Charlie" immediately slides in as the No. 2, and could end up making starts. Although he's 6-foot-4, 40-year-old Hasselbeck looks frail out on the field.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 04:21:00 PM

Titans waived QB Charlie Whitehurst.

His roster spot was needed for RB David Cobb, who was activated from I.R.-designated for return. "Clipboard Jesus" is 33 and should be able to land on his feet as a backup quarterback. The Titans are set with Zach Mettenberger backing up reigning Offensive Player of the Week, Marcus Mariota.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 10:44:00 AM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 12-of-28 passes for 72 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.

When Ken Whisenhunt signed Whitehurst to be injury-prone Jake Locker's backup, the move was universally panned. Those critics were proven right. Whitehurst was forced into seven games, losing six of them while completing just 56.7 percent of his passes and throwing seven touchdowns. The Titans, seemingly content with sixth-rounder Zach Mettenberger, desperately need to add talent to the quarterback room. Whitehurst is a third-stringer.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 04:26:00 PM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 24-of-35 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' 21-13, Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Clipboard Jesus came out dropping dimes, going 6-of-6 for 71 yards and a touchdown on the Titans' opening drive. He cooled off considerably thereafter, but still delivered a surprising amount of precision passes into tight spaces. He was hurt by a lack of awareness from both Delanie Walker and Derek Hagan on incompletions that should have gone for big yards. Whitehurst has actually performed reasonably well in spot duty this season, but done nothing to disprove the notion that he's a career backup. He won't be on the fantasy radar for next week's finale against the Colts.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 11:31:00 PM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 10-of-24 passes for 203 yards Week 15 against the Jets.

Whitehurst replaced Jake Locker just before halftime of the Titans' loss. Whitehurst came out firing out of halftime, completing five of his first nine passes and leading the Titans on two third-quarter scoring drives. Whitehurst struggled when it mattered most, though, taking a sack and throwing three awful passes on 1st down from the Jets' 22 with the game on the line. Locker's injury looked bad enough that Whitehurst will likely start the remainder of the season, but he is not a fantasy option.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 07:53:00 PM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 17-of-26 passes for 160 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Tennessee's 19-17, Week 7 loss to the Redskins.

Checkdown Charlie kept the chains moving in an ugly game, but looked like the backup he is. Whitehurst's receivers did the work on his scores, with Kendall Wright shaking and baking through a scrum, and Derek Hagan getting behind the entire defense. Whitehurst air-mailed Delanie Walker on his pick. It looked like he intentionally threw it over Walker's head. Jake Locker (thumb) should be ready to return in Week 8, but it's not outside the realm of possibility that Tennessee will keep rolling with Whitehurst. Locker has been spectacularly ineffective this season.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 04:55:00 PM

Both Terry McCormick of Titans Insider and Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean believe Charlie Whitehurst will be the Titans' Week 7 starter.

McCormick "thinks" Whitehurst "probably starts," while Wyatt is "expecting the Titans to start" Whitehurst for the second straight week. Although Jake Locker (hand) is officially listed as questionable after a limited practice week, it isn't even clear whether he'll be healthy enough to back up Whitehurst.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 02:41:00 PM

Charlie Whitehurst took the bulk of the first-team quarterback reps in Titans practice this week.

Whitehurst is on pace to make his third 2014 start with Jake Locker (hand) still on the shelf, and rookie Zach Mettenberger still waiting in the wings. Whitehurst managed last week's 16-14 win over Jacksonville well enough to last four quarters, but likely remains at risk of an in-game benching pending a slow start. Mettenberger should get snaps sooner rather than later for a Titans team that has little or no playoff hope. Whitehurst is a 32-year-old journeyman.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 01:15:00 PM

Charlie Whitehurst completed 17-of-28 passes for 233 yards and no picks or TDs in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

He rushed twice for one yard and absorbed three sacks. Whitehurst drew praise from coach Ken Whisenhunt afterwards for "managing the game" effectively, something the Titans hope to do whenever he is in. With Jake Locker's (hand) status going forward uncertain, Whitehurst could be in line for another start in Week 7 against the Redskins. He's not a two-quarterback-league starter.
