Why wouldn’t the Titans let Mettenberger start over Whitehurst?

According to Ian Rapoport, Charlie Whitehurst will start instead of sixth-round rookie Zach Mettenberger because the team believes Locker’s injury is short-term. If the injury lingers and turns into a long-term issue, we could see the strong-armed rookie move into the lineup.

Well this make no sense to me. The team failed to pick up the option on Locker this year, which means they are already looking past him. If you do not have Locker in your plans, wouldn’t you want to get your future quarterback as many snaps as possible?

I do not get this option, but hey who am I….
