Locker expected to start for Titans

Jake Locker will start for the Tennessee Titans this week when they travel to Miami to face the Dolphins, barring an unforeseen setback during the week.

“I think he’s ready to go. It’s just a matter of now getting through practice and seeing how it goes for him,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said. “Physically I think he’s as healthy as he’s going to be, I think, until he starts playing. He had a good day of practice today, and we’ll see how it goes the next couple of days.”

Locker said it is important for him to be able to play his usual style of play when he returns, and that means scrambling when necessary.

“I told Munch, ‘If you’re going to consider letting me play at some point I need you to consider it being myself’ so that I don’t have to think about ‘don’t do this’ or ‘don’t do that,’” If I’m going to be able to play, I’m going to go out and play the way I know how and the way I always have played. If something happens, it happens at that point. You can’t play with that in the back of your mind.”

At 3-6, the Titans are in bad need of a spark, and they are hoping Locker's return could provide it Sunday in Miami.
