In Week 3, Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker took a hit from a Cincinnati Bengals defender resulting in a wrist injury that kept him from being able to grip a football after the game. An MRI was eventually completed and luckily, there was no structural damage to the 26 year olds wrist. The injury has been officially diagnosed as a sprained wrist, leaving him questionable for the Tennessee Titan’s Week 4 matchup against a miserable Indianapolis Colts pass defense.
Locker was officially listed as DNP (Did Not Practice) for the Titans on Wednesday which is bad news for the gun slinger. When head coach Ken Whisenhunt was asked what Locker did on the field on Wednesday, he simply replied “not much.” The Nashville Tennessean believes there’s a “very real” possibility Jake Locker’s strained wrist costs him Week 4.
Locker can grip a football now, as opposed to after the Titans Week 3 game versus the Bengals, but his status is still unknown and should be updated soon. If he can not suit up, back up Charlie Whitehurst will take over. Regardless of the matchup against the low ranked Indy Defense, Whitehurst will be off the fantasy football radar in almost all leagues.
