Jim Wyatt tweets that Titans QB Jake Locker was able to end the week on “a high note” and will get the start for this weekend’s game against the San Diego Chargers.
Titans quarterback Jake Locker separated his non-throwing shoulder during Sunday’s loss to the Patriots. On Monday, Locker underwent an MRI, which revealed there was no structural damage to his shoulder.
After seeing the results, Titans head coach Mike Munchak could give Locker the chance to play this Sunday, depending on what he is able to do in practice.
“If we still feel he can be productive, run around and do the things he needs to do to play the position, then we’re going to be fine with him playing,” Munchak said, via the Associated Press. “If for some reason he’s not able to do those things, then we won’t put him in a position that he shouldn’t be in.”
Locker will wear a brace all week to protect his shoulder. It’s expected that Locker will play Sunday, but like Munchak said that if his shoulder prevents him from being productive in practice, than veteran Matt Hasselbeck will start in Sunday’s game against the Chargers.
