Tennessee Playoff Hopes Dim with Loss of Locker

The Tennessee Titans shot at the playoffs all but vanished when it was confirmed that Jake Locker would be lost for the season with a Lisfranc injury. Locker was injured during an option play in the second quarter of the Titans Sunday loss the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The quarterback left the field after an attempted handoff to running back Chris Johnson that resulted in a fumble.

Following Locker’s departure from play, veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick stepped in and was able to bring the Titans back into the game by throwing for 264 yards and scoring 3 touchdowns, 2 through the air and one rushing score.

Fitzpatrick will step up as the starter for this Thursday night’s matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

As Fitzpatrick enters the starting role, look to grab up receiver Kendall Wright and tight end Delanie Walker, two of Fitzpatrick’s favorite targets.
