Jake Locker injury: Titans QB facing 5-6 month recovery

Otto Greule Jr

Jake Locker could be facing a 5-6 month recovery window after undergoing successful Lisfranc surgery. The good news is that he shouldn't miss offseason workout for the Titans, but will the team have already moved on by then?

Jake Locker could be facing an extensive recovery time, 5-6 months, after undergoing surgery to repair his Lisfranc injury, the Nashville Tennessean reports. Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said that surgery went well with "no surprises," but that an exact timetable for Locker's return is still unknown.

"He heals a little different than other people, but we assume he'll be able to do something this spring," Munchak said. "I'm sure it's something that will be adjusted as he goes through the rehab process. We know he'll be ready for training camp and OTAs and it is just a matter of exactly how the whole thing will work."

If Locker is forced to sit out a full six months, he may still be able to suit up for the start of the Titans' offseason workouts in May. Munchak was confident that the quarterback would be available for offseason training activities and training camp.

Locker's 2013 season got off to a promising start. He appeared to be on his way to fulfilling his top 10 NFL Draft selection, throwing six touchdowns to zero interceptions over his first four games. He suffered a knee injury that kept him out for most of October, however, and came back to throw two touchdowns to four interceptions over what would be his final three games of the season.

Locker went down for good in Week 10 during a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. In three NFL seasons, he will have appeared in 23 games and missed 25 for the Titans due to injuries.
