Description: Tennessee QB Jake Locker (Lisfranc surgery) says he is ahead of schedule and expects to be ready for May OTAs, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
Insight: Locker, Charlie Whitehurst and Tyler Wilson are the current QBs on the roster, but don't be surprised if the new regime brings in a quarterback in the draft. Locker has yet to show he's a fantasy-worthy QB.

Description: Titans QB Jake Locker is back in the locker room with four minutes left in the second quarter.

Insight: That doesn't mean he a great fantasy option this week, but if you have been struggling with Ryan Fitzpatrick this is an upgrade and quarterback and a boon to his receivers.

Insight: That means it's back to the bench for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Locker missed two games with a sprained hip but recovered much quicker than expected. He hasn't thrown an interception yet this season and his 99.0 QB rating was one of the league's best at the time of his injury.

Insight: Locker's original timetable for a return was 4-to-8 weeks so the fact that he could be back in only three is a huge win for the Titans. Tennessee has lost two in a row with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center though both losses were against excellent teams (6-0 Kansas City and 6-1 Seattle).

Description: According to titansonline.com, Jake Locker's MRI revealed no major damage to his hip joint.
Insight: Locker's injury is classified as a sprained hip. He won't require surgery and has already begun a rehab routine for both his hip and knee injuries. The team still expects him to miss "a few weeks," but he could be back closer to four weeks than eight.

9/22/2013 6:28:00 PM
Description: Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker scampered for 68 yards and a touchdown on five carries and threw for 299 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Chargers.
Insight: Locker has led the Titans to a surprising 2-1 record and they very well could be 3-0 if they hadn't blown a lead against the Texans in Week 2. The third-year QB has zero turnovers but only three passing touchdowns and 572 passing yards in three games so he isn't yet on the QB2 radar.

Description: Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker will get as many reps as possible during the exhibition season, according to head coach Mike Munchak.
Insight: If true, Locker will post gaudy stats in the exhibition season, but fantasy owners will have to look past the numbers and see how he's playing before jumping on the Locker bandwagon. Most quarterbacks get at most five quarters of action over the exhibition season, but it appears Locker may see more work than that.
 
1/9/2013 1:50:00 PM
Description: Jim Wyatt at the Nashville Tennessean reports that Titans quarterback Jake Locker had surgery on his left shoulder on Tuesday.
Insight: Locker suffered through two injuries to the shoulder during the season. The team hopes he'll be ready for May OTAs, but he should certainly be ready for training camp. The Titans have a lot of offensive talent, so if Locker can step up his game, he could be a low-end fantasy starter.
 
12/31/2012 3:36:00 PM
Description: According to the Nashville Tennessean, Titans quarterback Jake Locker will undergo left shoulder surgery "in the near future."
Insight: Locker was given the starting job at the beginning of the season but was never able to find his groove in Tennessee's offense. Maybe the shoulder injury had something to do with that but we still don't have high hopes for him going into 2013.
 
12/9/2012 7:08:00 PM
Description: Titans quarterback Jake Locker had 262 yards on 22-of-35 passing with one touchdown and two picks Sunday at Indianapolis.
Insight: Locker has been a turnover machine in the last three games, handing the ball over nine times in that stretch. Play at your own risk against the Jets in Week 15.
 
11/11/2012 5:30:00 PM
Description: Titans QB Jake Locker only completed nine passes in his return to the lineup but managed to throw two touchdowns without turning the ball over.
Insight: Locker hadn't played since Week 4 at Houston due to a shoulder injury. He only had to throw 21 passes Sunday after Tennessee went up big early on Miami.
 
11/9/2012 2:12:00 PM
Description: Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker was a full participant in Friday practice, according to Jim Wyatt, beat writer for The Tennessean. All signs point to him returning to the Titans' starting lineup Sunday versus the Dolphins.
Insight: Locker hasn't played in over a month while recovering from a separated shoulder. Whether he can get through a full game is a question mark and makes starting him in fantasy lineups a huge gamble.
