Titans QB Jake Locker Will Not Need Surgery, Hip Sprain


There was some good news on the Jake Locker injury front. Locker took a second MRI today to confirm exactly what the first MRI had said. The diagnosis on the injury is a sprained hip and he will be out for a few weeks. It could have been so much worse, but he will get to return to the field this season. Locker has been playing great to start out the year and sadly this injury puts a halt on the momentum that he has built up to this point of the season.

Locker has helped lead the Titans to a 3-1 record this season and the Titans have yet to commit a turnover this year.

With Locker sitting on the sideline in a ballcap, Ryan Fitzpatrick will go under center and start for the Titans.

The Titans have to face the 4-0 Kansas City Chiefs this weekend. It will be a tough task for Fitzpatrick as the Chiefs are one of the best teams at putting pressure on quarterbacks. That streak of games without a turnover might end this weekend OR the Titans come out and stop the undefeated Chiefs with their backup. That is why we play these games.
