Titans sign Ryan Fitzpatrick

The USA Today - [Full Article]

The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms on Monday night on a two-year deal with former Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, a person with knowledge of the deal told USA TODAY Sports.

Fantasy Impact:

The Titans also cut Matt Hasselbeck, so Fitzpatrick will back up Jake Locker or perhaps compete with Locker for the starting job. We do not see this as a vote of confidence for Locker.

Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck sounds content with his role as Jake Locker's backup.

“Who knows what happens next year?” said Hasselbeck, who will enter the third and final season of his contract with the Titans and count $7.5 million against the team’s salary cap. “But I like our quarterback room a lot and if I’m here, I understand where we are in Jake’s development and all that, so I guess, really, I’m OK with being a part of his maturing process if that’s the role I have to play. What also goes with that role is stepping in if he can’t go, so I knew all that coming in.

“Some guys might feel differently at the stage I am in my career or whatever. But the only thing that’s important to me that goes with that is I want to be on a team that is good and that is heading in the right direction.”

Quarterback Jake Locker received positive news from his most recent MRI, and there’s a chance he could play in Sunday’s game against the Dolphins, Titans Coach Mike Munchak said on Tuesday night.

Locker has missed the last five games after dislocating his non-throwing shoulder for the second time in the team’s September 30 game at Houston. He’s been practicing the last several weeks, and received an MRI each week to update his recovery. The team received results from Locker’s most recent MRI on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Munchak said the plan is for Locker to split reps with Matt Hasselbeck, so there is a bit of uncertainty as to who the starter will be at this point in the week. The Titans have a bye in Week 11, so it's possible they hold Locker out this week against Miami.

Titan Insider - [Full Article]

According to a source, quarterback Jake Locker is nearing a return to health with his injured left (non-throwing) shoulder and could be able to play again fairly soon.

Locker, who has been out since Week 4 in Houston, is nearly healed from the fractured bone in his shoulder that came about once the shoulder was dislocated for the second time this year.

That said, the Titans are awaiting the results of an MRI today to determine if Locker might be cleared to play this week against the Miami Dolphins, or if he needs to wait until after the bye week and return Nov. 25 at Jacksonville.

As evidence by Sunday’s 51-20 shellacking from the Bears, the Titans are in need of some sort of spark to save the dying embers of the 2012 season. And Locker needs the experience going forward.

Surgery to fully correct the shoulder problem remains a possibility for Locker in the off-season.

Fantasy Impact:

Locker would take back the starting job from Matt Hasselbeck, especially after Sunday's pounding by the Bears.

Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck will be the starting quarterback “until further notice” as Jake Locker continues to recover from his non-throwing shoulder injury, coach Mike Munchak said.

Fantasy Impact:

Hasselbeck is off the fantasy radar in a Week 9 matchup against the Bears.

Jake Locker has fracture in non-throwing shoulder

Titan Insider - [Full Article]

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.”

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Quarterback Jake Locker missed his fourth straight start, and he wasn’t even in uniform as Matt Hasselbeck was backed up by Rusty Smith.

Locker dislocated his left shoulder twice in the first four games. He was limited in practice the past two weeks.

Asked if Locker would be ready for this week’s game against the Bears at LP Field, Munchak said: “I don’t know yet. We’ll have to see. He’ll get re-examined again this week.”

Titans plan to reevaluate QB Jake Locker's shoulder injury this week. I'm expecting Matt Hasselbeck to be the guy again vs. Colts

Fantasy Impact:

Hasselbeck is a QB2 option, but keep in mind even with all the points scored yesterday he threw for just one TD.
