Titans | Jake Locker injury update

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 11:22:57 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (foot) has moved on to a different stage in his rehabilitation and is no longer in a walking boot. Locker is hoping to take part in organized team activities in June. "Surgery went really well. Foot feels awesome and rehab is up and rolling," Locker said. "Doctors were happy with how things looked so (I'm) just continuing to follow that trend."

Fantasy Tip: All good news for Locker. Assuming he continues to make progress, he should be good to go for training camp. Locker should be considered a No. 3 QB at this point considering he is not a shoe-in for the starting job. The team could also draft another QB this year, and have Charlie Whitehurst on the roster if Locker struggles.

Titans | Expect Jake Locker to have competition

Sun, 23 Feb 2014 23:43:19 -0800

Although the Tennessee Titans front office supported QB Jake Locker, the team will likely bring in some competition for him in the offseason. Titans brass expect the top quarterbacks to be off the board by the 11th pick, but potential options to provide some younger competition for Locker that could be had after the first round include Derek Carr, Aaron Murray, Jimmy Garoppolo, and Zach Mettenberger. The Titans also have QB Ryan Fitzpatrick under contract and the team feels comfortable with him.

That's what I have told him every time I see him. And that's the way it is."

Titans | Decision coming on Jake Locker

Tue, 12 Nov 2013 10:39:30 -0800

The Tennessee Titans must decide by May 3, 2014, whether they want to pick up QB Jake Locker's 2015 option.

The transition tag for quarterbacks this year is $13.068 million. Locker will be under contract next year for $2.091 million. "I think that's stuff we'll talk about when the season is over and you have to make decisions on the next season. … That's a nice February discussion," head coach Mike Munchak said. "He is a fighter, and if anyone can come back from another injury, it is going to be him. We are just concentrating on these next seven weeks."

Sun, 10 Nov 2013 15:05:31 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is expected to take over as the team's starting signal caller for the remainder of the season, as sources believe QB Jake Locker (foot) suffered a season-ending foot injury in Week 10 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Fitzpatrick isn't necessarily worth using in most fantasy leagues of 12 or fewer teams, but he is a solid addition in those formats which require two starting signal callers.

Titans | Jake Locker to start

Sun, 20 Oct 2013 06:16:01 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hip, knee) is expected to start in the team's Week 7 game.

Fantasy Tip: Even with Locker starting, he is a risky start at best. He may not be a full strength, and has a bad match up. Look elsewhere this week if you have a better option.

Titans | Jake Locker expected to start

Sat, 19 Oct 2013 08:42:38 -0700

The Tennessee Titans expect QB Jake Locker (hip, knee) to start at quarterback Week 7 unless he suffers a setback.

Fantasy Tip: It is surprising that Locker would only miss a few weeks after suffering his injuries. Locker probably should not be a fantasy option this week because he could be limited by his injuries during the game and is facing a tough San Francisco 49ers defense.

Now, we'll spend some time with him and talk as an offense and decide what is the best thing to do for Sunday." General manager Ruston Webster said he's optimistic that Locker can play Sunday.

Titans | Jake Locker not ruled out

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 10:43:05 -0700

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak is not ruling out QB Jake Locker (knee, hip) for Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, but his chances still look unlikely with the team's bye week in Week 8. Locker increased his activities in practice Thursday, Oct. 17, but continued to wear a brace on his right knee and walk with a limp. "He can play. It is just a matter of … is he quite ready? There is no doubt the more you rest, the more you take off, the stronger your (knee) is going to feel. But it doesn't mean you can't play in the meantime," Munchak said. "He came out and looked better today. … We'll consider anything, really. We'll wait until tomorrow. It is kind of wait and see. We don't want to ever say he can't do anything." Teammates expect QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to make the start this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: We fully expect Locker to return in Week 9. It's foolish to expect him to start this weekend. Nate Washington, Kendall Wright and possibly Kenny Britt will see a bump in their value when Locker does return.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (hip) will begin "football activities" this week, according to head coach Mike Munchak.
