“He fractured his shoulder. That's what we're waiting on to heal," Titans coach Mike Munchak told the website.
Locker suffered the injury on Sept. 30 against the Houston Texans on a sack by defensive back Glover Quin, marking the second time this season he had dislocated his shoulder. However, the hit by Quin also broke a bone in Locker's shoulder, which has kept him sidelined since and will for a few more weeks.
That means Matt Hasselbeck will remain the Titans starting quarterback for now.
“Our quarterback until further notice is Matt,” Munchak said. “I wouldn't say (Jake) is a long way away. He will visit the doctors this afternoon and tomorrow morning. It's more of a medical deal that they're gonna allow him to do some more things and allow him to get bumped around a little bit."
