NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jake Locker is ready to start testing his sprained right hip and knee by doing some throwing and running. The Titans starting quarterback still isn't expected back before November.


So, it's still up to Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Titans to protect the ball better going into what they're calling a must-win game against the visiting San Francisco 49ers on Sunday before Tennessee's bye week.


The Titans have squandered a 3-1 start losing two straight since Locker got hurt. Fitzpatrick has been intercepted four times and struggled to hold onto the ball.


Coach Mike Munchak said Monday that the Titans are putting more pressure on Fitzpatrick's shoulders than they need to.


The Titans managed six points offensively losing 20-13 at Seattle, and Munchak says they should be better with their problems not complicated.
