Locker has yet to be ruled out for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers, but the expectation is that he will miss at least one more week. The Titans are hopeful he can return after the Week 8 bye. Locker missed the past two games after suffering a hip injury in Week 4, but he avoided serious damage and won't have to miss the rest of the season.
Fantasy impact: Locker's injury thwarted a surprisingly strong start to the season. Tennessee needs him back in the worst way, as Ryan Fitzpatrick's weak arm has stunted the entire offense. Locker remains a roster hold in all leagues, but his return will be a boost to the fantasy values of Kendall Wright and Nate Washington. If he avoids any setbacks, he will be back on the QB2 radar soon. The Titans face the Rams, Jaguars and Colts coming out of the bye.
