Titans QB Jake Locker has fractured left shoulder
"Next week" has been the tentative return date for Titans quarterback Jake Locker for a couple of weeks now. But head coach Mike Munchak revealed Monday that there is a good reason why Locker has yet to play after dislocating his left, non-throwing shoulder in Week 4: Locker's shoulder is also fractured, and he has not received medical clearance.
Matt Hasselbeck will get his fifth consecutive start Sunday, this one coming against the Bears. While he's been pretty good at keeping possession of the ball, Hasselbeck has thrown exactly one touchdown in those four starts. He is a low-upside QB2 against that ferocious defense. Locker isn't expected to play until after the Titans' Week 11 bye, but Munchak is standing by his position that Locker is his starting QB once he is healthy.
