Locker got some practice in on Wednesday, but coach Mike Munchak doesn't expect him back. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker (shoulder) was able to get in limited practice on Wednesday, but he is not expected back to play this week against the Bills. Coach Mike Munchak instead saying that he'd likely return in Week 8 against the Colts. Locker has missed his last two starts since being injured in Week 4 against the Houston Texans. Matt Hasselbeck will most likely start on Sunday and he has 4 TD and 4 INT with a 74.1 QB rating in four games.

Fantasy Take: Hasselbeck is not a viable fantasy option, though he could be an emergency start against a terrible Bills defense. Locker is an interesting backup option in fantasy because of his dual-threat ability, but that also puts him in harm's way for another injury.
