    Holy crap.

    There were idiots on this forum who called Locker soft after he suffered a big shoulder injury and missed some time last season.

    He is the opposite of soft. He just beat his estimated healing time from a devastating hip injury by a full month.

    Frankly, this seems kinda reckless. The Titans might be making a desperate decision here. They see the 3-1 start destroyed by Fitzpatrick and the season slipping away.

    Man the more I think about this, the more uneasy I get. This is a huge risk.

    If Locker can't move in the pocket and takes a big hit, it could basically end the season. The coaches are risking his health and future because they all know they are fired if this season doesn't turn around fast.

    Just deal with Fitzpatrick for one more week and then Locker gets the bye to get fully healthy. Frankly, this team probably isn't beating the 49ers with Fitzpatrick or a gimpy Locker. This seems crazy to me.

    The o-line better turn in the pass protection performance of their lives.

    His injury was not even that bad. I mean they never even came out and said what was wrong. All they said that the xrays and mri's didnt show anything. He'll be fine.

    Since you aren't a doctor who personally checked out the MRIs, I don't see how you can pretend to know this.

    What we do know based on actual evidence is that he was carted off the field, was estimated to miss 4-8 weeks, and was still badly limping (according to beat writers) at practice this week.

    Maybe he's okay, but the evidence suggests he's probably not feeling too healthy.
