Injury looks to be behind Locker

Jake Locker is still wearing the brace on his sprained right knee, but said he has much more mobility now than two weeks ago when he played against the San Francisco 49ers.

How much better is Locker? That the Tennessee Titans quarterback wouldn't quantify it, but he did say he is much better.

“I really don't do the percentage thing, so I couldn't really put it in those terms, but I just feel a lot more confident and I'm moving around a lot better. So I feel good,” Locker said.

Locker practiced fully Wednesday in preparation for the St. Louis Rams, after he stayed in Nashville during the bye week to receive treatment for his knee and sprained hip that cost him two games before returning against San Francisco.

“I was here all week. I tried to throw every day and get out move around like we were doing practice stuff and keep my arm in shape and get that movement in my leg so I wasn't just sitting in the training room,” Locker said.

Despite still sporting the brace, Locker seems to have the injury mostly behind him now, according to Coach Mike Munchak.

“He looks good. I think he’s ready to go. I’m glad all of that’s behind us,” Munchak said. “I’m glad we’re not having that discussion all these two weeks about can he play, how’s his knee, how’s his hip. That’s gone. We feel good about him, and his leg’s stronger. No limitations. We need to go win.”

Other injuries

Linebacker Moise Fokou (knee), tackle David Stewart (ankle) and safety Michael Griffin (quadriceps) were held out of Wednesday's practice by the Titans.

Munchak indicated that Griffin probably wouldn't practice until Friday, but the coach was confident that Griffin would be able to play against the Rams.
