Titans Place QB Jake Locker On Season-Ending Injured Reserve

Update:

Jim Wyatt reports that the Titans have officially placed on QB Jake Locker on season-ending injured reserve.

  • The Titans subsequently signed WR Devon Wylie to their active roster.

Locker is expected to undergo surgery on his foot at some point in the near future. He finishes the season with 1,256 yards passing, 10 total touchdowns and four interceptions over the course of seven regular season games.

Titans HC Mike Munchak confirmed that QB Jake Locker is in fact out for the season following a Lisfranc injury he suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars, via Titans Insider.

This is an unfortunate situation for both Locker and the Titans. Locker has played 23 games in three seasons since the Titans selected him in the first round of the 2010 draft.

Ryan Fitzpatrick took over with Locker out and will be the team’s starting quarterback moving forward. Fitzpatrick finished the game 22-of-33 passing for 264 yards and two touchdowns.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that earlier indications are that Titans QB Jake Locker is done for the year after suffering a right foot injury during Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars.

  • Wyatt adds that Locker is believed to have a Lisfranc injury that could possibly require surgery.

“I don’t know exactly how it happened,” Locker said, “but when I got up from that run I could feel it.”

Locker went down in the second quarter, but it didn’t appear to be this serious given that the Titans announced that he was questionable to return. Locker later showed up on the sidelines during the second-half sporting a protective boot on his right foot.

Titans HC Mike Munchak ruled Locker out for Week 11 following the conclusion of the game, so it was clear at that point in time that Locker’s injury was fairly serious.
