Tennessee Titans: Jake Locker is still questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts


All week, Tennessee Titans’ quarterback Jake Locker has been very limited in practice due to a wrist injury he has been suffering from last weekend’s loss to Cincinnati. Locker had a MRI done earlier in the week and the results came back positive with no signs of a fracture. But, the problem is Locker’s hand has been swollen and he is having trouble gripping the ball.

Tennessee Titans’ head coach Ken Whisenhunt feels good about the progress made with Jake Locker this week in practice.

“It was encouraging that we got to see Jake to a little bit, but that’s what we anticipated,” Titans’ coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “Hopefully, it will progress more, and we’ll see what we can do tomorrow and that will determine a lot.”

Many are seeing a slim chance for Jake Locker to start in Sunday’s game against Indianapolis. The Titans’ are 1-2 this season, and head into this weekend against an evenly matched opponent in the Colts. It will be the second straight road game for the Titans, who are coming into Sunday’s game off of two straight disappointing losses to Dallas and Cincinnati. All eyes are on backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst to start in Sunday’s game if Locker doesn’t make progress with his injury.
