Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans…
While we don’t know the degree of Jake Locker’s Lisfranc injury, it could require months without physical activity after his expected surgery. John Glennon of The Tennessean details the injury and looks at others who’ve dealt with it, including Houston quarterback Matt Schaub and Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew. (Apologies to Glennon for misidentifying the author earlier.)
The Titans' new kick and punt returner is Devon Wylie aka Wiggles, says Jim Wyatt.
To which I say: I hope he’s good enough that people stop tweeting crazy suggestions about who should be returning. Their suggestions have included the team’s best players or anyone who’s fast.
The Titans have another new starting center, but Ryan Fitzpatrick has worked quite a bit with Chris Spencer, says Davie Boclair of the Nashville Post.
Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains remains committed to Jake Locker, says Boclair. “He’s a guy I believe in,” Loggains said. “I do think Jake Locker’s a good football player and I hope that he’s at Titan for a long time and I hope to have the opportunity to coach him for a long time.”
I visited with the Dan Dakich Show on 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis to talk Titans. (Audio.)
