NASHVILLE — While Jake Locker will miss a "few weeks" with a sprained hip, coach Mike Munchak says the Titans are encouraged by how the quarterback already is moving around.
How many games Locker misses depends on how quickly he recovers.
"If anyone's going to get back quick, it's him," Munchak said Tuesday on his radio show on Nashville's WGFX-FM. "We know he's going to miss a few games and now it's just going to be a matter of how well he rehabs and how quickly it comes around to see exactly when."
The Titans released a statement earlier Tuesday, saying a second MRI exam was "reassuring" and confirmed Locker did not suffer major damage to his hip joint. Locker sprained his right hip and right knee.
Munchak had dismissed reports Monday that Locker would miss up to eight weeks, saying everyone was just "guessing." He said then they needed the second MRI exam because Locker had swelling in his hip. Munchak said Tuesday night they wanted to be cautious.
