If the Tennessee Titans are to jump back into the AFC playoff hunt, they'll have to do it without their quarterback.
Jake Locker is out for the rest of the season, the Titans announced.
Jake Locker out for the season but it is not known if he will need surgery, per Mike Munchak.

Locker's season-ending foot injury will go down as one of the strangest ones of the season.
Locker wasn't hit by a huge defensive end, he didn't hurt himself at the end of a great run ... he was injured handing off.
Locker turned to give the hand off to Chris Johnson in the second quarter of Sunday's game against Jacksonville. It seemed like Locker might have taken a misstep and then had to extend himself to get the ball to Johnson. Locker stretched and got to Johnson, but he also started limping after he handed off. He suffered a Lisfranc injury, and his season ended on a non-contact injury handing off. Locker suffered a shoulder injury last year, and missed two games with a knee and hip injury.
Locker will be back next year, and hopefully he can shake his bad luck with injuries.
