Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker fractured his left non-throwing shoulder on the hit he took in Houston a month ago, and that is what is keeping him from returning to the starting lineup.
When asked for confirmation of whether or not Locker's shoulder did have a fracture, Titans coach Mike Munchak on Monday told TitanInsider, “He fractured his shoulder. That's what we're waiting on to heal.”
Matt Hasselbeck will remain the Titans starting quarterback for now. It's a difficult matchup this week against the Bears but he does have a couple of favorable ones after that against Miami and Jacksonville.
