The Tennessee Titans are going through a rough patch right now. After starting the season with a 3-1 record before the injury of starting quarterback Jake Locker, the team with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center has dropped to 3-3 after losses to the Kansas City Chiefs and the Seattle Seahawks. With at least one more game to go without Jake, the value of some young players has finally begun to show. But who are these valuable players?Jake Locker- many fans would not have expected Jake to be “valuable” at this point of the 2013 season. After many fans had given up on him in 2012, he has really lived up to his potential in his third year as a Tennessee Titan. In just 3.5 games, Jake put up 721 passing yards with 6 touchdowns, ZERO interceptions, and a 99.0 passer rating. He also picked up seven first downs with his 98 rushing yards from 15 attempts. Jake Locker did not do all of this against cupcake defenses. His opponents were the Pittsburgh Steelers (6th ranked defense in allowed yards-p...

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, Titans quarterback Jake Locker returned to practice on Wednesday as he continues to nurse knee and hip injuries.
It looks like Locker could be a week or two away from playing.

The post Jake Locker returned to practice appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
With Ryan Fitzpatrick running the offense, the Tennessee Titans have not looked the same. The presence of a young quarterback in Jake Locker seemed to be what was sparking this offense. Since Locker injured his hip in Week 4 against the New York Jets, the Titans have dropped two in a row and have fallen to 3-3 on the year.
Though only a seven-point loss to a potential Super Bowl...
Jake Locker will begin "football activities" htis week according to Coach Mike Munchak.
Locker who sprained his hip against the New York Jets has missed the past two games and probably won't be under center when the Tennessee Titans host the San Francisco 49ers. But after ruling him out quickly the previous two Mondays Munchak said there was some chance that Locker...
Yesterday afternoon, as the Tennessee Titans stormed onto the field in Seattle, the sun shined on CenturyLink field. That was but the first oddity in the 20-13 loss yesterday. After the first touchdown by Marshawn Lynch, kicker Steven Hauschka was absolutely leveled on the kick return by Darius Raynaud. He was shown on the sidelines with a bloody nose, and was...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. One of the fixes that had to happen this season for the Titans to be successful was to rebuild its offensive line.
The grouping was beset by combination of injuries and poor play to have a large part in last seasons 6-10 debacle. That had to particularly stick in the craw of Titans head coach Mike Munchak and offensive line coach Bruce Matthews, a pair of Pro Football...
Last week: 15 (+1)
The Titans hung tough in Seattle and were just the 2nd team to cover the spread there over the past 2 seasons. Ryan Fitzpatrick is obviously a limiting factor for this team and, to be fair, Jake Locker probably would have been as well once his interception rate increased from 0.0%. However, they have plenty of defensive talent and can frustrate opponents...
Since I'm really not in the mood to do the writing about Chris Johnson that an examination of the run game would entail, I decided instead to turn my attention to one of the other headaches for the Titans on offense. Yes, it's a Kenny Britt post.
I decided to go ahead and watch all of Britt's targets this year. My goal in doing so would multi-fold:
From the TitansOnline.com:NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans signed veteran LB Zac Diles and waived WRMichael Preston.Diles (6-2, 245) re-joins the Titans after signing with Kansas City in the offseason. He played in six games for the Titans last season and totaled 13 tackles before breaking his ankle in the Buffalo game (10/21) and being placed on injured reserve.Diles has...
The Titans are making a big change in the middle of their offensive line – rookie Brian Schwenke is taking over at center.
Schwenke the team’s fourth-round draft pick will start on Sunday against the 49ers. He replaces veteran Rob Turner who started the first six games of the season.
“I think he’ll do a great job’’ coach Mike Munchak said of Schwenke. “We drafted...
When it comes underdogs, the NFL is full of them.
Take a look at the Kansas City Chiefs who are surging at 6-0. Give the New England Patriots credit for being 5-1 after being decimated by injuries. And don’t count out the Tennessee Titans, despite their 3-3 record.
While it may seem like the Titans’ hopes have been dashed as of late due to the injury to quarterback Jake Locker...
The sixth-year veteran wide receiver joined his teammates for a Tuesday walk-through but doesn’t expect to be a full practice participant this week.
Manningham who suffered torn knee ligaments in Week 16 of the 2012 season doesn’t plan on rushing back into a game. The 49ers visit the Tennessee Titans this Sunday.
“Just taking it day-by-day seeing how it goes” Manningham...
Titans are elder gods in Greek mythology. There massive and powerful, and seemingly completely unrelated to anything in Tennessee. That was what I thought until witnessing this game on Sunday. Seahawks fans got to see what their team looked like playing with a Titan on their backs. Everything was harder. There was no sense of flow or free movement. Each step was arduous and unsure...
Injured Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker says he's preparing to start Sunday against San Francisco.
The Titans aren't saying he will, but they're also not saying he won't.
Coach Mike Munchak said Thursday the Titans are going to wait and see how Locker feels after a second straight practice before deciding who starts against the 49ers.
"We're not going...
The San Francisco 49ers travel to Tennessee this weekend to play the Titans, who are dealing with injuries to starting quarterback Jake Locker. But Locker has returned to practice this week, leaving some question as to whether or not he will play. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said the team is preparing for Locker just in case.
While the San Francisco 49ers have played well on both sides of the ball during their most successful stretch of the season, the Tennessee Titans' offense must improve under backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick if they are to end their slide.
The visiting 49ers look for a fourth consecutive victory while trying to hand the Titans a third straight defeat Sunday.
