Jake Locker injury: Titans QB may not return until Week 12

Bob Levey

Locker may have to miss two more games.

Injured Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker could be out until Week 12, according to head coach Mike Munchak. Locker suffered an injury to his non-throwing shoulder against the Houston Texans on Sept. 30 and has not been able to play in a game since then.

In four starts, Locker has completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 781 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. The Titans were 1-3 in those games.

Locker was replaced by veteran Matt Hasselbeck, who has thrown six touchdown passes and four interceptions in 2012. Hasselbeck has completed 63.8 percent of his throws for 1,167 yards. He's also led the Titans to two victories since taking over.

The Titans face the Chicago Bears in Week 9 and the Miami Dolphins in Week 10, and they're off in Week 11. If Locker does return to action in Week 12, it'll be for a road game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
