Titans going with Mettenberger as starter

Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger will start Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Jack Locker is sidelined with a thumb injury.

And Charlie Whitehurst hasn't impressed in his place.

Mettenberger, a sixth-round pick from LSU, completed 2 of 5 passes for 17 yards and an interception in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Mettenberger completed 47 of 68 passes for 659 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions and three lost fumbles in the preseason.

Mettenberger tore his ACL at LSU almost 11 months ago.
