Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker exited the game against Houston Texans in the first quarter after suffering a left shoulder injury. Locker was tended to by the team’s training staff and was able to walk off on his own. Moments later, he was taken into the locker room for further evaluation.
Locker returned to the sideline in street clothes with his arm in a sling.
Texans cornerback Glover Quin, who came on a nickel blitz, smashed into Locker’s hand to force a fourth down.
It’s likely Locker reaggravted an injury to his left shoulder, which he sustained in Week 1 against the New England Patriots while making a tackle following an interception.
The Titans turned to veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck.
