Titans quarterback Jake Locker was knocked out of Sunday’s game in Houston with a separated left shoulder, and he isn’t expected back for at least a couple weeks.
Although the injury was to Locker’s non-throwing shoulder, and Titans coach Mike Munchak said an MRI revealed no structural damage, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that after two left shoulder separations this season, Locker needs rest and is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the Vikings, and possibly more games after that.
After Sunday’s game against the Vikings the Titans host the Steelers on the following Thursday, so they have two games in the next 10 days. It would seem unlikely that Locker will play in either game.
Which means that Matt Hasselbeck, who came off the bench and completed 17 of 25 passes for 193 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions on Sunday, will start at least a couple games.
