Terry McCormick of TitansInsider reporst that a source has informed him that Titans quarterback Jake Locker‘s non-throwing shoulder is close to full health and he could be back under center in the near future.
“Locker, who has been out since Week 4 in Houston, is nearly healed from the fractured bone in his shoulder that came about once the shoulder was dislocated for the second time this year,” writes McCormick. “That said, the Titans are awaiting the results of an MRI today to determine if Locker might be cleared to play this week against the Miami Dolphins, or if he needs to wait until after the bye week and return Nov. 25 at Jacksonville.”
Titans could use a spark following the 51-20 rout Chicago handed them yesterday afternoon. Unlike Matt Hasselbeck, Locker has shown he can make plays with his arm and throw the deep ball. Considering that owner Bud Adams has already put the franchise on notice, they’re not going to be able to play things safe in the coming weeks. Mike Munchak has already shown a lot of confidence in Locker this season, so it seems almost certain that he will reclaim the job once he’s healthy enough to play.
