Statement from Locker: "I am retiring from football after much reflection and discussion with my family. I will always be grateful for having had the opportunity to realize my childhood dream of playing in the NFL and for the lifelong relationships I developed because of that experience. Football has always played a pivotal role in my life and I love the game, but I no longer have the burning desire necessary to play the game for a living; to continue to do so would be unfair to the next organization with whom I would eventually sign. I realize this decision is surprising to many, but I know in my heart that it is the right decision and I look forward to spending more time with my family and pursuing other interests.”
Titans quarterback Jake Locker was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Jets late in the first half with a shoulder injury.
Locker was hit by outside linebacker Quinton Coples as he threw a deep incomplete pass for Derek Hagan. The Titans said Locker has a left shoulder injury.
Charlie Whitehurst replaced Locker for the Titans. The status for a QB starter for Week 16 is up in the air, but Locker nor Whitehurst are all that great of fantasy options at this point.
