Locker says shoulder surgery 'went well'

National Football Post

Jake Locker said in a text message to TitanInsider that the surgery to repair his dislocated left shoulder "went well."

Locker separated the shoulder twice during the 2012 season, his first as a starter for the Tennessee Titans. And after the second separation, which caused him to be out five weeks, it was determined that surgery would be needed in the off-season to fix the problem, a procedure that was performed Wednesday.

While the surgery will keep Locker rehabbing for much of the off-seson, he is expected to be ready to go when the Titans open training camp in July.
