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.

Las Vegas is as lost as anyone when it comes to the 2014-15 Super Bowl with Week 10 on approach. Seattle has lost at home. New England has resurrected to championship form. Denver folds on the road. A .500 team may win more than one division. Believe it or not, power rankings may be able to help in this regard. At the very least, they serve as the most recent barometer of league hierarchy with the entirety of t ...

NFL Power Rankings Week 10: Predicting Post 'Monday Night Football' Standings

Nov 3 2014 10:00am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

We are now more than halfway through the 2014 NFL season, which means the sample size is large enough to start trusting the patterns. However, in typical NFL fashion, the majority of the league is decidedly close with three, four or five losses. The parity is strong as ever this year, which makes distinguishing between the teams particularly difficult. Week 9 did bring a vintage New England Patriots performance and a solid statement from the Arizona Cardinals, ...

Steelers Look Like Playoff Contenders Behind MVP-Worthy Season from Big Ben

Nov 3 2014 12:10am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

These aren't your daddy's Pittsburgh Steelers. Thanks to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, they're better. In Week 9, the Big Ben-led Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens 43-23 behind 340 passing yards and six touchdowns from their quarterback. Antonio Brown was Roethlisberger's favorite receiver yet again with 144 receiving yards on 11 catches. This on a really rough rushing day for the team (only 55 yards on 25 carries). The win improves the Steelers to ...

The Titans offer few noteworthy fantasy performances in Week 8 loss to Texans

Oct 27 2014 8:25am CDT | Source: SBNation

A rookie quarterback. A lackluster offensive effort. There's little to celebrate for fantasy owners of Tennessee Titans players in Week 8. The Tennessee Titans have been looking for an answer at quarterback all season. They needed a spark after starting the season 2-5. With Jake Locker struggling when he's actually able to stay on the field and Charlie Whitehurst playing like the backup he is, the Titans arguably had nothing to l ...

Two AFC South rivals will face off Sunday when the Titans host the Texans. AFC South rivals clash this week when the Tennessee Titans play host to the Houston Texans. The 2-5 Titans are in desperate need of a win following last week's 19-17 loss to Washington. They've now lost five of their previous six games and already look to be out of the playoff picture.

NFL Trade Rumors: Latest Gossip Before Sunday's Week 8 Games

Oct 25 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Though the NFL trade deadline usually brings less activity than in other sports, recent weeks have illustrated how transactions can emerge without warning.  The Percy Harvin bombshell holds significant implications for the defending champions, while the New England Patriots also addressed a pressing edge-rushing need by buying low on the once-promising Akeem Ayers. With a pair of Super Bowl contenders shifting their rosters, it seems natural to expect ...

Ben Stiller — Oh Sorry, Zach Mettenberger Is Starting For The Titans

Zach Mettenberger was a shoe-in starter at the beginning of the year. Jake Locker got injured, as always. And Charlie Whitehurst proved he wasn’t a capable NFL starter, as always. But who knew he had so much White Goodman in him? With that mustache get-up, he looks like Ben Stiller’s character from Dodgeball. Zach Mettenberger went Globo Gym on everyone’s ass.

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 be ...
