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.

Can Delanie Walker Build off Huge Week 2 Performance?

Sep 17 2014 1:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Many superlatives have been thrown around in the fantasy football realm over the first two weeks of the 2014 NFL season. Seemingly few have been been directed at Delanie Walker, the Tennessee Titans tight end who posted a fabulous 10-catch, 142-yard performance in his team's Week 2 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Walker has begun his 2014 campaign on a tear (13 total catches), rewarding fantasy owners with 29.9 sta ...

All Is Not Lost for Indianapolis Colts in a Thoroughly Weak AFC South

Sep 16 2014 4:04pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

We have thoroughly chronicled the bad from Indianapolis' first two losses of the season. The organizational philosophy has failed to make the Colts an upper-echelon contender in a weak AFC. The defense, now without star outside linebacker Robert Mathis, has no pass rush.  But there are also reasons to believe that the Colts shouldn't be left for dead. Philadelphia and Denver were two of the toughest games on the schedule, and applying liberal adjustments for the ...

Sep 16 2014 12:03pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

We are now two weeks into the NFL season, and many fantasy owners are scrambling to readjust their lineups and scour the waiver wire. There were a rash of injuries on Sunday, with Robert Griffin III, DeSean Jackson, Knowshon Moreno and A.J. Green all leaving their respective games. But a number of players also put up shockingly big numbers, so let's take a look at three of them now.   Delanie Walker, TE, Tennessee Titans I picked up Walker off t ...

Cowboys go to Tennessee and trip up the Titans

Sep 14 2014 3:13pm CDT | Source: ProFootballTalk

In Week One, the Titans dominated and the Cowboys got dominated. In Week Two, things were different. Dallas destroyed Tennessee 26-10 today, behind a surprisingly tough defense that looked a whole lot better than anyone imagined the Cowboys’ defense could be this season. Jake Locker had trouble all day, throwing two interceptions an ...

Don't be an idiot: Week 2 NFL picks against the spread

Sep 14 2014 8:35am CDT | Source: SBNation

One trick to sports betting is to not be stupid. Here's my overall strategy when it comes to betting: Imagine the person that you would hate to watch football with the most out of anyone in the world. Imagine how they would bet these games. And do the opposite. I call it my "don't be an idiot" betting guide. Last week I told you that I am almost exactly .500 when it comes to the betting strategy of imaging t ...

How to watch Cowboys vs. Titans 2014: Time, TV schedule, online streaming, radio and more

Tony Romo and the Cowboys will look to avoid going 0-2 Sunday at 1 p.m. ET against a Titans team that picked up a huge road win Week 1. Remember when everyone thought the Cowboys' defense would be terrible? Well... it is. Dallas was easily beaten by the 49ers last week, 28-17, as Tony Romo threw three interceptions in the loss. It's more of the same for the Cowboys, who continue to be hampered by a porous defense and Romo's incredibly inopportune turno ...

Fantasy Football Week 2: Last-Minute Player Projections and Top Sleepers

When it comes to rearranging your fantasy football roster for success, it's better late than never. There's still some time left to make the proper adjustments before Sunday's mass of Week 2 NFL showdowns take place, but proper is the key word. While most owners have their starting lineups conceivably figured out after draft day, anything from injuries, to other standouts emerging, to a sheer lack of ...

Week 2 of the 2014 NFL season already kicked off with CBS' debut of Thursday Night Football, but a packed slate of Sunday games will go much further to decide which teams get off to the start they desired this season. Getting off to a strong start on opening weekend is key, but of no less importance is teams' execution on Week 2.

Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Week 2: Examining Boom-or-Bust Options

One question probably gets asked in the minds of football fans more than any other on Sunday mornings: Should I start him or sit him? I understand, folks. I do it too. And I'm here to help. There's a caveat for this article, however: We're going to break down players with incredibly high upside but those who I also deem to be really, really risky and therefore not necessarily the smartest starts based on my ...
