The Tennessee Titans are playing the San Francisco 49ers this weekend and will need to be on top of their games if they’re going to pull off a win. They might have to play Sunday without quarterback Jake Locker. He was spotted wearing a brace on his right knee and walking with “an obvious limp.”
Still, the Titans are considering starting him.
“He can play,” Munchak said Thursday, via the Tennessean. “It is just a matter of … is he quite ready? There is no doubt the more you rest, the more you take off, the stronger your (knee) is going to feel. But it doesn’t mean you can’t play in the meantime.”
“I just wanted to get in and try and do everything I could every day to get better and try and get back on the field as soon as possible,” Locker said. “And my body has responded well. There are certain things that don’t feel normal yet, but I am feeling pretty good and just trying to get better and progress through that stuff.”
The Titans have struggled with out Locker in the line up. They’ve lost two games with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center. He has completed 52.6% of his passes for 526 yards, two touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Locker was significantly better when he was in the line up completing 62.2% of his passes for 721 yards, 6 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.
