Price per head sportsbooks learned that on Wednesday, Tennessee Titans starting QB Jake Locker returned to limited practice with a sleeve and a knee brace on his right leg.
The team is still planning to have Ryan Fitzpatrick start his third consecutive game since Locker sprained his knee and hip in a September 29 victory against the New York Jets – something that left many fans and price per head sportsbooks very concerned.
“It’s a long way from (what he did) to playing in a Sunday game,” coach Mike Munchak said of Locker. “… We’re not declaring anything, we’re not saying he’s out, but we’re going forward like Ryan’s starting. But we want to see how fast Jake comes along.”
Locker participated in QB drills, some 7-on-7, and price per head sportsbooks found out that the player took a few snaps in a team period that would have typically gone to Rusty Smith, who was the backup QB.
Munchak said that for Locker, it was a good start, and price per head sportsbooks agree.
Munchak said that Locker’s injury is more about the knee than the hip. The coach also said that the team’s upcoming bye week is important in their thinking regarding the player.
The Titans are off until November 3 at St. Louis after their game on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
Price per head sportsbooks saw that on Tuesday, the Tennessean in Nashville reported that Brian Schwenke, rookie fourth-round guard, will take over on Sunday for veteran Rob Turner at LP Field.
Schwenke will not be eased in. The 49ers will have Glenn Dorsey at nose tackle with NaVorro Bowman and Patrick Willis, two of the NFL’s best inside linebackers, right behind him. The Titans want to be a run-centered team, but the team is tied for 17th in rushing offense, and Chris Johnson averages only 3.1 yards a carry.
