Titans release QB Charlie Whitehurst, activate RB David Cobb

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Titans have waived quarterback Charlie Whitehurst, freeing a roster space to bring back rookie running back David Cobb from injured reserve-designated to return.

The Titans announced the moves Wednesday.

Whitehurst had the best season of his career last year starting five games for Tennessee and throwing for 1,326 yards with seven touchdowns and only two interceptions. Coach Ken Whisenhunt helped bring Whitehurst to Tennessee to help teach Jake Locker, then Marcus Mariota his offense. But the Titans fired Whisenhunt last week.

Cobb, Tennessee's fifth-round draft pick out of Minnesota, could make his NFL debut Sunday against Carolina after landing on injured reserve with a calf he hurt Aug. 27.

The Titans also added linebacker J.R. Tavai and tight end Kevin Greene to the practice squad.
