Jake Locker's injury will likely keep him from playing Vikings

Tennessee QB Jake Locker will likely miss the Titans Week 5 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Tennessee Titans will be without quarterback Jake Locker when they take on the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5. Locker suffered a dislocated shoulder for the second time this season when he was sacked by Glover Quin early in the Titans 38-14 Week 4 loss to the Houston Texans.

An MRI revealed no structural damage to the shoulder and coach Mike Munchak said Locker will be day-to-day, but reports indicated that Locker is expected to miss the Vikings game and Matt Hasselbeck will get the start in his place. Locker first injured his shoulder in the Titans' opening week loss to the New England Patriots, but did not miss the following week's start and had been playing with a harness.

Locker has passed for 781 yards, four TDs, and two interceptions with a 63.2% completion percentage and a 90.2 rating. Hasselbeck went 17-for-25 with two TDs and two interceptions in relief of Locker against the Texans. The Vikings host the Titans on Oct. 7.
