Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) remains on track to return in Week 7 against the Buffalo Bills. Coach Mike Munchak told reporters that he hopes Locker "will be back for Buffalo week". Locker missed the last two games with a dislocated shoulder.
The more interesting statement from Munchak comes via John Glennon, where he insists that Locker will be the starter if healthy, indicating that Matt Hasselbeck will go back to the bench. Hasselbeck led the Titans to an upset win over Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
Fantasy Impact: The QB "controversy" was an inevitable talking point after Locker's early struggles. Despite the big win over the Steelers, the Titans still have too many problems to make a serious run this year, and would be foolish to bench the young, promising Locker and stall his development.
As far as fantasy is concerned, stay tuned. We'll see how Locker's shoulder responds in practices next week. In the meantime, keep Hasselbeck in your back pocket as a low-end QB2.
