QB JAKE LOCKER WOULD NOT PLAY IN WEEK 5
Thu, 04 Oct 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Jake Locker has no structural damage to his left, non-throwing shoulder and coach Mike Munchak says the Titans QB will be day to day this week.

Locker dislocated his shoulder Sunday early in a 38-14 loss to Houston when sacked by Houston Texans cornerback Glover Quinn in an injury Munchak said happened from the quarterback slamming back into the turf, not from the hit itself. He watched the remainder of the game with his arm in a sling and had an MRI examination Monday.

Munchak said the Titans (1-3) will know more in the next couple days whether or not Locker will play Sunday at Minnesota (3-1).

”It’s similar to last time,” Munchak announced of Locker, who originally hurt his shoulder in the season opener against New England Patriots. ”The MRI was very similar. It popped out, and they popped it back in. He’s real sore right now, so they are just waiting a day or two to get a full examination.”

The coach claimed Locker surprised everybody by how quickly he recovered when he hurt the shoulder before. But the coach also announces Locker held the ball too long on a 3-step drop and must throw quicker.

Munchak asserted the Titans won’t necessarily rest Locker simply to give the shoulder time to heal to hinder him from another dislocation.

”Clearly, rest is way better than playing football with any injury. Not playing football would be good for all of us, but I do not know that he would sit out for that reason,” Munchak announced.

Defensive tackle Jurrell Casey played in college at UCLA against Locker when the QB was at Washington. He’s seen close up how Locker kept playing irrespective of how many times defenses hit him.

”I have no doubt he’s going to come back strong, and he’s going to lead us as he’s been leading us,” Casey claimed.

The Tennessee Titans do have Matt Hasselbeck ready if Locker recovers slower from this injury. The veteran was intercepted twice and lost a fumble in the loss to Houston. Munchak related Hasselbeck would benefit from a few extra snaps in practice.

If the Titans are trying to find a little bit of good news, they have a decent chance that both receiver Kenny Britt and linebacker Colin McCarthy could return to practice this week. Britt hurt his left ankle on Sept. 23 against Detroit, just 2 games after coming back from knee surgery and a one-game suspension for a driving under the influence arrest.

”We didn’t feel comfortable with where (Britt) was on Saturday. We attempted to run him a touch. To have him go out there and cut would not have been fair to him or the team,” Munchak announced of Britt. Football lines

”Obviously, our hope is that he’d have an even opportunity to help us this week.”

McCarthy is a defensive captain who hasn’t played since spraining his right ankle in the 1st half of the season opener.

”I think McCarthy should be able to go out and practice on Wednesday, and at least do some individual stuff,” Munchak asserted. ”We’re more hopeful this week that he will have a shot.”
