Titans Injury Update: No structural damage for Jake Locker

By on 9/24/2014 01:10:00 PM

The results are in for Tennessee Titans' quarterback Jake Locker. His MRI showed no structural damage. Locker's status for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts will not be known until later this week, reports Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Locker suffered a wrist strain during last week's 33-7 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. Locker is experiencing soreness and the injury will be monitored during the week. He will receive treatment and the team will see how well his injured wrist responds.

Back-up quarterback, Charlie Whitehurst, will start if Locker's injury doesn't respond to treatment and he is unable to play.

Locker did not have a good performance last week against the Bengals going 17-34 for 185 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions. The quarterback has been getting progressively worse since a good performance in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Titans have a tough match-up this week against the Colts. Both teams are 1-2, which is one game behind the division-leading Houston Texans. The Titans' chances would be better on Sunday if they can get their starting quarterback healthy enough to play.
