Jake Locker Ready for Physical Therapy Sessions

Posted Jan 15, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Titans quarterback Jake Locker said Monday evening that his recent shoulder surgery went well and he will go through daily physical therapy sessions at his home in Washington for the next four weeks.

first year as Tennessee's starting quarterback.

Locker had surgery on his left, non-throwing shoulder last Wednesday. Titans team physician, Dr. Burton Elrod, performed the surgery and will evaluate the second-year quarterback when he returns to Tennessee.

“I think Dr. Elrod was real happy with everything, and I feel really good,” Locker said. “Things are progressing.”

Locker first hurt the shoulder while tackling New England safety Patrick Chung in the 2012 season opener when he made his first career start. Chung was returning what was first ruled a fumble on a catch by Nate Washington that was ruled an incompletion after video review.

Locker made his first road start the following week at San Diego and recorded his first win as a starter in Week 3 at LP Field against Detroit in a 44-41 overtime victory when he threw for 378 yards. Locker was unable to build off that momentum the following week at Houston because his shoulder was hurt again early in the game. The more severe injury caused him to miss the next five games, but he returned for the final seven.

Locker said having the surgery and rehab process this offseason isn’t ideal, but he added “I’ll be able to get the things accomplished that I want to” while he recovers.

In addition to the physical therapy sessions, Locker plans to conduct in-depth film study of the past season.

“I kind of can’t do a whole lot now so it gives me the opportunity to really go back and watch a lot of the tape and benefit from it,” Locker said. “I’ve seen a few games — our last couple, but I haven’t gotten into all of them yet and started the real study of it, but I’m sure I will this week.”

An avid sportsman, Locker said the recovery process will keep him from hunting during his spare time, but he said he plans to join friends with his dog on some duck hunts.

Locker said he hasn’t sought any advice from other players who have undergone a similar procedure, but he feels confident about the recovery process.

“I trust the guys that did the surgery and that I’ll be going into rehab with,” Locker said.
