Locker: Shoulder surgery went well

Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker said the surgery Wednesday on his left non-throwing shoulder “went well” in a text message to TitanInsider.

Locker, the Titans starting quarterback this season, twice dislocated the shoulder during the season, missing five games with the injury the second time he suffered the injury in a game at Houston on Sept. 30. It was after that second dislocation that it was determined that he would need surgery to repair the injury in the off-season. Locker originally suffered the injury in the season opener against the New England Patriots.

Locker will need several months now to recover from the surgery, but the team expects him to be ready by the time training camp opens in July, and perhaps a bit sooner.

Locker finished his first season as a starter, completing 177 of 314 passes for 2,176 yards with 10 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
