Jake Locker out indefinitely with fracture in non-throwing shoulder

The former Husky quarterback won't be seeing the gridiron anytime soon.

US PRESSWIRE

Ex-Huskies quarterback Jake Locker probably won't be taking the field for the Tennesee Titans anytime soon as coach Mike Munchak revealed he has a fractured shoulder, Titan Insider reported on Monday.

Locker took a hit against the Houston Texans and fractured his non-throwing shoulder as well as dislocating it. Before injuring his shoulder, Locker was coming off one of the best games of his career when he threw 378 yards and two touchdowns as he led the Titans to a 44-41 overtime victory against the Detroit Lions.

Former Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has gone 2-2 filling in for Locker, including a 26-23 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers where he threw close to 300 yards.

"Our quarterback until further notice is Matt," Munchak said. "I wouldn't say (Jake) is a long way away. He will visit the doctors this afternoon and tomorrow morning. It's more of a medical deal that they're gonna allow him to do some more things and allow him to get bumped around a little bit."

Locker dislocated his shoulder in the season opener against the Patriots and sat out the rest of the game after the injury. He returned to action against the San Diego Chargers the following week before suffering another more severe injury against the Texans.
