Jake Locker injury: QB leaves due to shoulder injury

Jake Locker has left the field due to an injury sustained in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. Defensive back Quin Glover came off the edge untouched, and Locker didn't see the safety coming. Recent reports list the Tennessee Titans' QB as questionable.

This is the second injury Locker has sustained in the 2012 season, and in both occasions to his left shoulder. This is very concerning for the Titans and their young QB in his first year of having the keys turned over to him. Earlier this season he left the game in week two against the San Diego Chargers, when he was injured, also on a big hit.

In his absence it will be on veteran Matt Hasselbeck to right the ship, against a vaunted Texans pass rush. Last year Hasselbeck was successful in as a starter, as he was given the role of bridging the gap to the Locker era They currently trail Houston 7-to-0 early in the game.
