The Tennessee Titans have released a statement regarding quarterback Jake Locker’s hip injury.
“We received reassuring reports from the second MRI today and they confirmed that there was no major damage to Jake Locker’s hip joint – it is classified as a sprained hip. The area will need time to heal and strengthen, but he won’t require surgery and he has already begun a rehab routine for both his hip and knee. We certainly would expect him to miss a few weeks, but we are encouraged by the news today.”
It sounds like Locker will be out until after the Titans bye week.
My understanding is the most likely scenario for Jake Locker is he misses Tennessee's next 3 games, comes back after Titans' Week 8 bye.
