Jake Locker hoping to make fantasy return in Week 8

Thomas B. Shea

Jake Locker is almost ready to come back, but there are a few hurdles to clear. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) is inching ever to his return. According to Jim Wyatt, Locker says he feels "a lot better", but he's still not sure of his status for Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts. Wyatt also tweets that the team wants to see good progress on his MRI checkups.

Locker missed the past three games with a dislocated shoulder. He got in limited practice last week.

Fantasy Impact: Another wrinkle in the story comes from Titans Insider, where Mike Munchak assumes that Matt Hasselbeck will start again. This may or may not be a red herring, but the team clearly isn't 100% confident that Locker will be back.

We'll monitor the practice reports closely this week. Keep Hasselbeck in your back pocket as a QB2 if Locker can't go again.
