Jake Locker officially lost for season
Monday, November 11, 2013, 6:54pm
On Monday, it was announced that Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker will miss the rest of the 2013 season. Locker suffered suffered a Linfranc (foot) injury in the team’s loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The injury occurred with 7:12 left in the second quarter, when Locker was hit by Jacksonville linebacker Russell Allen at the end of an eight-yard run. He fumbled on the next play and limped to the sideline. Doctors examined him there, and he went to the locker room for X-rays.
“I don’t know exactly how it happened,” Locker said, “but when I got up from that run I could feel it.”
Ryan Fitzpatrick will take over for Locker. He's coming off a relief appearance in which he threw for 2 TDs and ran for another as he tried to bring the Titans back against the Jags. Fitz will mostly offer QB2 value going forward. He will face the Colts in two of the next three weeks with Oakland sandwiched in between. That will be followed by Denver in Week 14 and a tough matchup vs. Arizona in Week 15 and finally the Jags in finals Week 16.

The goal for Colts RB Trent Richardson -- other than having him find his rhythm rushing the ball -- is to find ways to get Richardson involved in the passing game. He had a 24-yard reception in the Nov. 3 game at Houston.
The Colts are trying to get Richardson going since trading for him. He's only averaging 3.0 yards a carry in six games with the Colts this season. As a low-end first round pick in most drafts, Richardson is probably hurting a lot of fantasy seasons up to this point. It's a great matchup this week though.
Ben Tate expects to play Week 10

Less than 24 hours later, Tate was feeling the pain of his commitment.
“It hurts pretty bad, man,” Tate said.
The four broken ribs he played with left him walking lightly Monday, saying it’s “hard to breathe and laugh.”
“I like to tell jokes. … Maybe by Friday,” said Tate, who plans to play Sunday at Arizona.
It sounds pretty painful, so it may not be a bad idea to get backup RB Dennis Johnson, who could be in line for increased work especially if Arian Foster isn't able to play after leaving Sunday night's game with a back injury. Tate carried 22 times vs. Indy in Week 9 with Johnson getting eight carries.
