It doesn’t look like Titan QB Jake Locker's absence will be an extended one. On Monday, coach Ken Whisenhunt said that he expects Locker will practice on Wednesday and that the quarterback was “very close” to playing against Indianapolis.
“My only concern was if he got hit … during the game that it would bother him and then he’d lose his effectiveness,” Whisenhunt said, via the Tennessean. “We just wanted to make sure he’s past that hurdle. He didn’t throw today. I think he’ll continue with treatment. He was very close Sunday … I would anticipate he’ll practice Wednesday.”
Whisenhunt added that he hoped the time off might get Locker back to his form from the season opener, the story said. Locker played well in the Titans’ only win of the season, but followed it up with a pair of poor performances before he was injured. The Titans have home games with the Browns and Jaguars coming up.
