Jake Locker is a work-in-progress who appeared like he was ready to take off after he led a 10-play, 94-yard game-winning drive against the San Diego Chargers. Unfortunately, those plans are on hold after Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples knocked him out of the Week 4 contest and on to a stretcher. Locker will miss at least the next three games with a sprained hip.
How has Locker fared? He has completed 62.2 percent of his passes for 721 yards with six touchdowns and zero interceptions. Not bad at all. Three of those touchdowns came in the first half of the Jets game. We’ll have to wait and see what he does or if that situation has an effect on how he handles pass-rushes.
