Titans confirm Jake Locker done for season

AP

The fear on Sunday was that Titans quarterback Jake Locker would miss the rest of the season after suffering a Lisfranc injury to his right foot.

That fear became reality on Monday. Coach Mike Munchak confirmed that Locker will miss the remaining games on the Titans schedule because of the Lisfranc injury. It is still unknown whether or not Locker will need surgery to repair the injury, but it is known how down Locker is about the turn of events.

“I know how depressed he is,” Munchak said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

When this year comes to an end, Locker will have missed 14 of 32 games over the last two seasons because of injuries and Munchak said that there would be discussions about his future with the organization this offseason. Depending on how things play out with Ryan Fitzpatrick leading the offense, Munchak may not be around to lead that discussion.

  1. Contrary to initial reports, he didn’t hurt his foot handing off the ball to CJ … It was the play before, which was his second run. I blame Jake for this injury. He ran the ball twice within a matter of minutes, and both times he aggressively took on defenders instead of sliding. I know his team was playing flat and he was trying to light a fire. I even admired his first run. But twice right away? That’s reckless … And he should know better after what happened last season–ruining his year early in the season by aggressively tackling a defender and dislocating/fracturing his shoulder.

  2. Jake’s got the will and the heart but what matters is being on the field and progressing.

    He’s yet to put in a full season. The Titans need to find a QB in the next draft. Locker will be a great backup.

    The biggest problem right now is the HC.

  3. With the ridiculous amount of premiere players inured this year – the NFL has to seriously consider expanding the 53-man roster to like 95.

    Too many hi-speed collisions fueled by HGH-laiden bodies. Wasn’t there supposed to be HGH testing like 2 years ago?

  4. i like jake locker, but this is the third year in a row there are questions about his ability to stay healthy. might be time to start taking them seriously.

  5. Jake Locker is a great athlete and a fantastic QB. Unfortunately he’s had injury “issues” dating back to at least his college days. All that said, Jake Locker is a good person and no matter what his role becomes on or off the football field, he’ll be a person you can be proud to say you know.

  6. Painful day for Titans Nation! So much of hope and expectations, and it seemed like Locker was starting to look like a legitimate NFL QB in the vein of McNair. But unfortunately, he needs the time to show it on the field, and he seems to regress every time he has an injury. Unless Fitzmagic turns things around (unlikely!), the Titans have to do some soul-searching in the offseason. HC, OC, OL coach all need to go, but the roster is definitely strong and this team can definitely turn the corner next year with the right leadership, coaching, and (sadly) QB as well!

  7. Fitz really IS a smart guy. Although he signed with the Titans to be a backup, he knew which team to sign with that has an injury-prone starter so that he may actually get to start games for them.

  8. “Contrary to initial reports, he didn’t hurt his foot handing off the ball to CJ … It was the play before, which was his second run. I blame Jake for this injury.”

    I blame the coaches. The play you are referring to that he hurt his foot on was a called QB run play.

  9. Wow, that’s 10-11 starting QBs injured this yr, at a position thats almost over protected by the rules. Guess that puts a premium on having a good backup, although few teams will go far with their 2nd string these days. Makes you wonder if it’s a coincidence, or the new CBA limiting offseason stuff and practices is to blame.

  10. Too many hi-speed collisions fueled by HGH-laiden bodies. Wasn’t there supposed to be HGH testing like 2 years ago?

    That’s part of it but most can be blamed on that dope Goodell for castrating defenses. If CBs were allowed to tussle, the game would be slowed down and you wouldn’t have so many hi-speed collisions. The “defenseless WR” is also to blame. There’s nothing preventing QBs from leading WRs into harm’s way anymore. It’s either a catch or a penalty. Slow down the game and injuries will slow down with it. Not rocket science.

    Steeler Nation laughs.

    ————————————————————————————————————————————————– funny even the jags and bucs are laughing at steeler nation, steerler nation are supposed to be good and they are mediocre at best.

  12. Would owner Tommy Smith consider bringing back Vince Young…
    I think Bud Adams had the right idea when he drafted Vince Young…
    The problem was, Jeff Fisher didn’t buy in….
    Vince Young is available and ready to play NOW at a low cost with a good chance for high rewards.
    You should bring him in for a tryout…

  13. I’m not gonna lie, as a Jags fan I got scared when Fitz went in there; He starting connecting with the Titans receivers noticeably more consistent than Locker.
