Jake Locker, of the Tennessee Titans, and his online sports betting fans shouldn’t be too worried about his right hip injury. The quarterback managed to avoid major damage and has a sprain he should be back on the field soon.
The 25 year-old suffered the sprained hip and a sprained MCL in his right knee on a third-quarter combination hit from the New York Jets’ Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples.
YouWager experts speculated that Locker would miss four to eight weeks or even more if his hip had been more seriously damaged, but according to a NFL source told the quarterback’s time frame for being out is now four to six weeks.
The 3-1 Tennessee team is set to play the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. They will square off versus the Seattle Seahawks on Oct. 13 and host the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 20. The following weeks the Titans have a bye. Many believe that Locker is likely to return when Tennessee resumes play on Nov. 3 versus the St. Louis Rams.
Starting in place of Locker will be Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Titans have yet to make a decision on Fitzpatrick’s backup. The team could promote Rusty Smith from the practice squad. Tennessee was slated to work out David Carr on Tuesday.
