NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
Locker loosened up Wednesday by throwing a few short balls before working in individual drills. He also threw during 7-on-7 for the defense for his first practice since dislocating his left shoulder Sept. 30 for the second time in four games.
Munchak said Locker did what they hoped he would be able to do, and the coach watched the eighth pick overall in 2011 in individual drills.
"It was what we hoped he'd be able to handle,'' Munchak said. "Now it's just to see how sore he got and keep progressing and giving him more to do. He's a guy you have to hold back. He wants to be out there. In his mind, he'd be able to play tomorrow if he had to play. We'll see how sore he got from what he did today and keep adding more to his routine.''
"We feel comfortable because the receivers, everyone he's so familiar with the offense that if he's ready to play next week that there wouldn't be any doubt he'd be the guy playing,'' Munchak said.
Hasselbeck is completing 60.2 percent of his passes for 726 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions. He's also been sacked eight times. Locker has thrown for 781 yards with four TDs and only two interceptions while being sacked three times.
A good sign for the Titans is that receiver
