Tennessee Titans’ QB Jake Locker is undergoing his offseason surgery today on his left shoulder, the one that was injured in the season opener against the New England Patriots and further injured against the Houston Texans.
RGIII isn’t the only QB having surgery today. #Titans QB Jake Locker’s left shoulder also being operated on. Team hoping he’s back by May

It was a rough season for Locker following the injury. Though it was to his non-throwing shoulder, it seemed to greatly affect his game. Locker struggled with accuracy at times and just didn’t look like the same guy we saw glimpses of during his rookie year.
The Titans are hoping he’ll be back by May. Hopefully he’ll be able to start off the 2013 season healthy and remain healthy throughout the season. It’s a tall order to ask from a mobile QB as we’ve seen from the likes of QB’s like Locker, which include Vince Young, Robert Griffin (also having surgery today), and Michael Vick. When somebody gets to take a shot at a QB, they take it.
Hopefully a healthy Jake Locker and an effective offensive scheme can help the Titans become the team they were supposed to be in 2012. As always, we have to play the waiting game.
*Best of luck and hopes for quick recovery go out to Jake Locker.
