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.

Fantasy Football 2014 Predictions: Sleepers Who Will Provide Great Draft Value

Jul 26 2014 1:37pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Fantasy football has arrived once again. Draft season is starting to heat up in a major way now that training camp is underway. The early drafts are always a little more volatile because roles and outlooks are sure to change in the weeks ahead. In other words, somebody who's a sleeper right now may become a hot commodity before the later drafts if he shines during the preseason. Jumping on the bandwagon of a certain player before i ...

Fantasy Football 2014: Second-Year Players Set for Breakout Seasons

Jul 24 2014 5:10pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

While plenty of rookies have been productive in fantasy football, many young players take a little longer to get acclimated to the NFL. Eddie Lacy, Keenan Allen and others had great starts to their careers and will likely be able to continue with strong performances in their second years. However, this does not mean you should forget about the talented athletes who were less than stellar in their first seasons ...

Redskins QB Robert Griffin III says HC Jay Gruden's offense is similar to Mike Shanahan's

Jul 19 2014 11:41pm CDT | Source: Fantasy Football Toolbox

Redskins fans and Robert Griffin's fantasy owners from 2013 probably want to forget about everything Mike Shanahan following last year's fiasco. Jay Gruden is in as the new head coach. Sean McVay is in as the new offensive coordinator. But when people watch the Redskins this season, they will see something that should remind them of Shanahan: The offense. Griffin said so. quot;I think having two ...

Fantasy Football 2014: Making the Case for Kendall Wright

Jul 11 2014 2:28am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Heading into the 2014 season, the Tennessee Titans' Kendall Wright is perhaps the most underappreciated wide receiver in fantasy football circles. He doesn't get nearly the respect he deserves, and his is a name you should get to know prior to your draft. Yes, some do laud him for being a major player in points-per-reception leagues (and he does, of course, hold significantly more value there), but Wright can be very useful in standard leagu ...

NFL players in contract years who could cash in

Jun 5 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: SBNation

Big names are heading into contract years, including Brian Orakpo, Jake Locker and Jason Pierre-Paul. Who stands to gain or lose the most from the 2014 season? Contract years must be a terrifying thing for NFL players. In exchange for a shot at a big salary, they put themselves of a lot of physical abuse, certainly, but perhaps overlooked is the mental stress. The idea that one's livelihood can disappear wi ...
