Raiders Fire Dennis Allen

Per Jay Glazer, so I'm trusting this report after Sunday night's AP report that was quickly retracted. As Mike Sando's survey revealed, nobody actually has any idea how good a coach Allen has been given the situation in Oakland. Offensive line coach Tony Sparano will likely be the interim head coach, allowing both coordinators to keep their jobs. The question now becomes, will GM Reggie McKenzie be next on the chopping block?

Locker Out, Whitehurst In?

Officially, Jake Locker is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Indianapolis. Titans beat reporter Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean, though, says that Locker is closer to "doubtful/out." If that's the case, then Tennessee's starting quarterback against the Colts will be Charlie Whitehurst. It would be the fifth start and 14th game played of Whitehurst's nine-year career, and his first start since he went 0-2 with the Seahawks in 2011.
