Jake Locker Injury Update: Fantasy Value Steady With Questionable Status

Jake Locker is questionable for Week 2 against the Chargers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. Locker injured his non-throwing shoulder attempting to make a tackle on an interception return. He was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, but got in a full session Friday and the Titans expect him to play.

Fantasy Impact: The Titans have a capable veteran backup in Matt Hasselbeck, but they never indicated that Locker would miss this week's game and he appears ready to go. Locker was inconsistent against the Patriots last week, but put up pretty solid stats despite leaving early with the injury and will be getting an extra weapon back in Kenny Britt. He's a tempting QB2 play against the Chargers' questionable defense.
