NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Jake Locker has practiced for the first time since dislocating his left, non-throwing shoulder and coach Mike Munchak says the Titans’ quarterback is on target to return when Tennessee hosts the Colts on Oct. 28.
Locker loosened up Wednesday by throwing a few short balls before working in individual drills. He also threw during 7-on-7 for the defense for his first practice since dislocating his left shoulder Sept. 30 for the second time in four games.
Munchak says Locker did what they hoped he’d be able to do and now must see if Locker can increase what he does in practice. Veteran Matt Hasselbeck will start Sunday in Buffalo (3-3) for the Titans (2-4) with Locker returning to the starting lineup against the Colts if there are no setbacks.
