Jake Locker Injury Not As Serious As Feared

Titans_Jake_Locker_2013NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans got a diagnosis on Jake Locker’s right hip injury Tuesday and said the starting quarterback avoided major damage and has a sprain that shouldn’t keep him out too long.

Locker suffered the sprained hip and a sprained MCL in his right knee on a third-quarter combination hit from the New York Jets’ Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples.

It had been feared that Locker would miss four to eight weeks or even more if his hip had been more seriously damaged, but a league source told ESPN’s Ed Werder that the quarterback’s time frame for being out is now four to six weeks.
