Jake Locker upbeat about recovery from foot injury

Titans quarterback Jake Locker is reportedly recovering well from Lisfranc foot surgery.

In a story published by the Nashville Tennessean on Thursday, Locker told reporter Jim Wyatt that he’s progressing after the November foot injury that ended his 2013 season.

“Surgery went really well,” Locker told the Tennessean. “Foot feels awesome and rehab is up and rolling. Doctors were happy with how things looked so (I’m) just continuing to follow that trend.”

According to the Tennessean, Locker is no longer wearing a walking boot for the injury.

The No. 8 overall pick in 2011, Locker threw for 1,256 yards and eight touchdowns and four interceptions a season ago for Tennessee. Before the foot injury, he missed a pair of games with a hip ailment.

Locker is entering the final year of his contract. The Titans have until May 3 to exercise an option to extend his deal for another season. However, in this scenario, he would be due a 2015 salary of the “cap percentage average” of the top 10 highest-salaried quarterbacks of 2014, according to the CBA.

Charlie Whitehurst and Tyler Wilson are the Titans’ backups. It’s possible the Titans could add a passer in the draft, too.

    Foot doesn’t have to be 100% to sit on the bench!

    He was in the midst of a breakout campaign before he got injured.

    Is Rusty Smith still around? You guys keep leaving him out of the QB discussion in Nashville.

    I watched jake win the state title in hs running the wing t, then in college coach Tyrone Winlesseasonhan advised him to “run around” more. That was the first time jake got hurt, then the genius now unemployed coach wanted him to come back early as a rb. Jake only had two years of actual QB coaching before he went to the nfl and one year riding the pine behind Hasselbeck. Give him time a d good coaching and watch him become a legitimate QB.

    Looking forward to seeing what this kid will do in 2014 now that he’ll have significantly more sophisticated coaching.
