NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker will miss a "few weeks" with a sprained hip, and the Titans say they are encouraged by the news from a second MRI exam.
The Titans released a statement Tuesday with the update, but did not say how long the quarterback will need to recover.
The team says the second MRI exam was "reassuring" and confirmed Locker did not suffer major damage to his hip joint. Locker has started rehabilitating both his hip and his sprained right knee.
Coach Mike Munchak had dismissed reports Monday that Locker would miss at least a month and possibly up to eight weeks, saying everyone was just "guessing."
Ryan Fitzpatrick will start Sunday for the Titans (3-1) against Kansas City (4-0).
