Tennessee Titans’ Jake Locker does not need surgery, has begun rehab


When it first happened, nobody was really sure what to make of the injury that Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker suffered this past Sunday. It obviously didn’t look good, but it wasn’t the typical injury you see to a head/neck or leg that you often see players lose their season to.

Still, there was concern that Locker could have sustained significant damage that would have all but ended his season.

Thankfully, that doesn’t appear to be the case as an MRI revealed that Locker has ‘no major damage’ and even better news, he won’t need surgery. Even more promising is that Locker had already begun to rehab what is being called a ‘sprained hip’.

Per Titans.com:

“We received reassuring reports from the second MRI today and they confirmed that there was no major damage to Jake Locker’s hip joint – it is classified as a sprained hip. The area will need time to heal and strengthen, but he won’t require surgery and he has already begun a rehab routine for both his hip and knee. We certainly would expect him to miss a few weeks, but we are encouraged by the news today.”
