Titans’ Locker returns after season-ending injury
Jake Locker is back on the field with the Tennessee Titans – a couple of weeks ahead of the schedule doctors estimated for his return from an injured right foot.
The quarterback says he pushed hard to give himself every chance to learn a new offense before the season starts.
Locker took part in his first team drills Tuesday since suffering a Lisfranc injury to his right foot Nov. 10, costing him the final seven games of the season. He has missed 14 of his first 32 starts, and now he has a new head coach in Ken Whisenhunt. That means Locker is busy learning a third offense going into his fourth NFL season.
The quarterback says he felt really comfortable during the first of the team’s practices this offseason.
