MRI on Titans QB Jake Locker’s Shoulder Shows No Structural Damage

The Titans on Monday got good news on injured QB Jake Locker, who Sunday in the loss to the Texans hurt his left (non-throwing) shoulder.

An MRI on Locker’s shoulder showed no structural damage, coach Mike Munchak said.

Locker re-injured the shoulder early in the 38-14 loss. It “popped out,” Munchak said, when Locker was sacked by a blitzing Texans safety Glover Quin.

Locker is “still sore” and his status for practice will be evaluated on Tuesday and Wednesday, Munchak said. The Titans have two games in the next 10 days: Sunday at Minnesota at October 11th vs. Pittsburgh at LP Field.

The second-year pro first injured the shoulder in the season opener against the Patriots on Sept. 9. Since then he has been wearing a shoulder harness under his uniform.
