Titans activate David Cobb; Cut Charlie Whitehurst

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans officially activate David Cobb from the short-term IR today.  They cut Charlie Whitehurst to make room on the roster for Cobb.  I am a little surprised they decided to let Whitehurst go, but that means that they are 100% confident in Mariota's knee.  They must also feel pretty good about their ability to keep him upright for the rest of the year.

Whitehurst was definitely a Ken Whisenhunt guy.  Whitehurst was with Whiz in San Diego before coming to Tennessee.

Cobb figures to be in the mix for carries this weekend.  Antonio Andrews had a nice game last week, but Cobb has a higher ceiling than Andrews.  Cobb was probably the favorite to win the starting job out of camp before he was hurt.  Now he is 100%.  This gives the Titans 2 guys that are capable of getting yards between the tackles.  Dexter McCluster figures to be the one that really loses carries in this deal.
