Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 13 vs HOU (6 / 12 / 91 / 1 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Locker was benched because his play deteriorated to the point that he was handicapping the whole offense. On his first play from scrimmage in relief of Mettenberger during the third quarter, he continued that trend with a bad interception underneath. Locker forced the pass to a covered receiver. On the following drive, Locker made a good start connecting on a couple of relatively simple throws. However, then Chance Warmack was injured and Locker was playing behind an offensive line with one starter on third down. He was quickly taken down in the pocket. Locker couldn't move the offense on the following drive, before J.J. Watt forced a fumble to start the next drive that gave the Texans the ball. Locker followed his fumble up with an interception when he was late throwing to a post route at the goal line. Locker added a third interception at the end of the game, but the play was negated by a roughing the passer penalty. After that play, Locker found Nate Washington for a long touchdown.
2014 Week 14 vs NYG (9 / 11 / 81 / 0 / 1 pass, 2 / 28 / 0 rush)
For the second week in a row, Locker came into the game and proceeded to turn the ball over. He took a couple of drive-killing sacks and forced a pass down the middle of the field for an interception. It was another reminder of Locker's failings in Tennessee.
2014 Week 15 vs NYJ (6 / 11 / 57 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 7 / 0 rush)
Locker avoided catastrophe during his return to the starting lineup, but his flaws were evident as he resumed struggling from the pocket. Locker's downfield accuracy was okay, but he struggled to complete passes underneath. He left the game in the second quarter after taking a big hit.
Latest NewsTitans | Jake Locker to have surgery (Mon Dec 15, 04:35 PM) - Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) will undergo shoulder surgery Tuesday, Dec. 16, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Locker was placed on Reserve/Injured Monday, Dec. 15. Our View: Even Sam Bradford thinks that Locker is banged up too much. Locker's time as the franchise quarterback in Tennessee is likely over. He's athletic and has flashed a *little* bit at times, but he's hurt way too much. Locker is a free agent in 2015, and he'll have to latch on (likely somewhere else) as a backup quarterback.
