Locker Tosses TD Before Leaving Game with Shoulder Injury

Posted by Gary Glenn on September 9, 2012 – 2:35 pm

Making his first career start, Jake Locker tossed his first touchdown of the season, avoiding pressure and splitting a pair of defenders with a 29-yard strike down the right sideline to Nate Washington.

It was the kind of play that excites Titans coaches, showing Locker’s athleticism and big-play ability when he is on the move.

Coming off a 21-3 halftime deficit, the Titans’ scoring drive covered 80 yards in four plays and pulled them within 21-10 early in the third quarter.

You can see Washington’s touchdown catch right here.

It didn’t take long for Locker to begin moving the offense. Starting at Tennessee’s 20-yard line, Locker found tight end Jared Cook down the middle for a 35-yard gain to New England’s 45 (watch Cook’s reception). Two plays later, Chris Johnson turned a short catch into a 16-yard gain to the 29, setting up Locker’s TD pass to Washington on the next play.

The touchdown was Locker’s fifth of his career and Washington’s 32nd.  As a rookie in 2011, Locker completed three of his four touchdown passes to Washington.

Locker completed 23-of-32 passes for 229 yards with one touchdown and one interception before leaving the game with a shoulder injury early in the fourth quarter.

    I hate to see Jake go out but I’ve got to say this is the first time I can ever remember not flipping out when our backup QB came into the game. Go Titans!

    Munchak, you got to get these boys to play at a higher level. Once again your getting out coached. Playing calling by Chris Palmer is a joke. I understand its the 1st game but we didn’t look good yesterday at all.

    Griffin looked totally lost all day, Roos should have played the game from his house, and D. Morgan has not showed anything since he came to the team. The team in general was lackluster, no energy, no sense of what’s happening on the field. Locker did the best he could with what he has. Looked more like a Jeff Fisher coached team yesterday, and I, as a Titan’s fan do not want to see that.
    Get it together and GO TITAN!

    The Play calling for the offense and defense wasn’t aggressive at all! We definitely got out coached! Defense needs to work on tackling and needs to hit the weight room after that game! Locker didn’t look too bad but made a costly turnover! Hopefully we can get it together next week. LET’S GO TITANS!!!!!!

    CAN WE RUN BETTER PLAYS FOR CHRIS JOHNSON!!!! HE’S NOT THE BIGGEST BACK IN THE WORLD BUT IF WE CAN BE MORE CREATIVE IN OUR SCHEME WE CAN GET HUGE PLAYS FROM HIM

    I know this seems premature but I think Jake Locker was a bad pick for the titans.He cant throw consistent enough to win games on this level.
