Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker was confirmed to be ruled out for the rest of the 2013 NFL season with a right foot injury.

After losing to the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars, the Tennessee Titans received another blow: quarterback Jake Locker is out for the season. 

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennesseean, Locker suffered a Lisfranc injury on his right foot when he was scampering for eight yards in the second quarter against the Jaguars. He fumbled on the next play and then went to the sidelines. Team physicians accompanied him to the locker room for X-rays.  

Locker offered his own take on what happened.

"I don't know exactly what happened, but when I got up from that run I could feel it. It's tough. You want to be on the football field with your teammates...A lot of times your character is tested through adversity and it's up to you to deal with it in the most positive way for yourself and your football team." 

Wyatt stressed it still remains unclear whether the third-year play caller will undergo surgery.

Titans head coach Mike Munchak also touched on this subject when he spoke with ESPN's Paul Kuharsky. 

"We don't know as far as when and if he'll need surgery and how they will handle that going forward. But he won't play the rest of the year.

"It's very disappointing, it's hard on the team...To lose him now is a huge blow." 

The injury trend for Locker continues. He missed five games in 2012 because of a shoulder injury that required surgery. On Sept. 29, he sat out two games after he sustained hip and knee injuries in a home game against the New York Jets.   

Ryan Fitzpatrick, who took over when Locker went down with the injury in the Jacksonville game, will start at quarterback when the Titans face the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 14. Rusty Smith moves up to the main backup spot. 

Fitzpatrick has passed for 790 yards and four touchdowns in 2013. He also has four interceptions and five fumbles. 

With Locker under center, Tennessee started at 3-1 but has stumbled to a 1-4 record since then.

NFL Power Rankings: Breaking Down All 32 Teams Before Week 8

Oct 23 2014 6:34pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning broke the all-time touchdown passing record in dismantling the San Francisco 49ers this last Sunday. Now Manning kicks off Week 8 at Mile High and faces the AFC West rival San Diego Chargers. It's hard to argue against the Broncos being the best team in the AFC—if not the entire NFL. Manning has a lot to do with that, as a great QB situation can help rosters overcome any number of deficiencies. A luxurious slew of talent has been assemb ...

Denard Robinson's Fantasy Value Worth Monitoring as Workload Increases

Oct 23 2014 12:13am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Maybe the Jacksonville Jaguars backfield isn't a lost cause after all. Following Toby Gerhart's brutal start to 2014, the Jags appear that they could elevate Denard Robinson into the starting role on a regular basis. And fantasy football owners may want to do the same. With 127 rushing yards last week against the Cleveland Browns, Robinson jumped ahead of Gerhart as Jacksonville's leading rusher; he's got 221 yards and a touchdown on the seaso ...

Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans Betting Odds, Analysis, NFL Pick

Oct 22 2014 8:21am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans will both try to bounce back from tough losses last week when they meet in Nashville on Sunday.

NFL Picks Week 8: Updated Lines and Final-Score Predictions for All Games

Oct 22 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Bettors will take notice that the NFL Week 8 offerings from Las Vegas are mostly a little too close for comfort. Some call it parity, but for one reason or another, this season has not been kind to bettors or the house as upsets routinely pepper the schedule and throw everyone for a loop. Take the defending champs, for example, as the Seattle Seahawks lost two weeks ago at home and then went out and lost to the St. Louis Rams last week. Funnily enough, that would seem an extreme example ...

Week 8 Survivor Pool Picks For Every NFL Game

Oct 21 2014 4:44pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

With the season dwindling, the odds of benefiting from the original “locks” segment in your survivor pool are low. So, instead of going with the standard three locks, two values, and one upset special format, I’m picking every game. This allows you to sift through the teams you’ve already used in your survivor pool and find the winners I feel the best about. Denver vs San Diego The Chargers tend to do well when they control the ball and melt time off ...

NFL Power Rankings Week 8: Latest 2014 Standings and Reaction for All 32 Teams

Oct 21 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's almost hard to believe we're headed into Week 8 of the 2014 NFL season already. It's been a wild ride to this point, and things are only about to increase in intensity, as division and playoff races begin to heat up. The league's elite teams are starting to emerge, churning out decisive victory after decisive victory. We also have a pretty good idea of which teams will be in the running for the No. 1 draft pick in 2015. Th ...

NFL Power Rankings Week 8: Latest Outlook and 2014-15 Super Bowl Odds

Oct 20 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The presence of parity, the "any given Sunday" adage that made its way to the silver screen and the microwaved age we live in tends to produce overreactions on a weekly basis in the NFL. That's what makes power rankings such a point of heated, constant debate. Week 7 saw a number of surprise results, which may not have altered the actual standings as much as individual perceptions of all 32 teams. With just one Monday night game remaining on the Week 7 schedule, it's ...

Titans fantasy football recap: Bishop Sankey and offense stay quiet

Oct 20 2014 7:05am CDT | Source: SBNation

The Titans couldn't move the ball much against Washington. We break down the fantasy implications. The Tennessee Titans are never going to be an offensive powerhouse, but not being able to put up points against Washington is a bad sign they'll be even a offense capable of producing a WR2 or RB2 in fantasy. They only made it into the red zone once in Sunday's 17-16 loss and never got into a rhythm. ...

Fantasy Football Starter Rankings, Week 7: Jimmy Graham is Active and Will Play Against the Lions

Oct 19 2014 10:44am CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Jimmy Graham is active for this week, as announced by the Saints Twitter account, so we can assume it is good. This though, brings me to a quasi-rant about injury info in the NFL. We eat up knowing who is in/out each week. The actual accuracy rate of such info? Not so much. We have seen reports of both Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery being likely out for a Sunday Night game (they played). On Graham, we saw reports that h ...
