Titans hoping QB Jake Locker will return in Week 7

Titans quarterback Jake Locker never really had much of a chance of playing in Week 6 considering that the Titans take the field against the Steelers two days from now. But head coach Mike Munchak said Monday that they are targeting a return date for him soon after that.
"Jake is getting better, no doubt about that," Munchak said. "The last couple of days he feels a lot better. We'll hold him and start thinking about the next game."

Fantasy Analysis:

Locker would certainly have a nice matchup waiting for him if he can make it back from his shoulder injury in time for Week 7 -- the Bills. For now, Matt Hasselbeck @Hasselbeck will get the call yet again. Obviously, it's not an outstanding matchup, but the Steelers' defense isn't a complete shutdown unit, and there should be a little more room for those Titans WRs to run with Troy Polamalu back on the shelf. Kendall Wright appears to be Hasselbeck's favorite option -- he caught nine passes off 11 targets in Week 5 -- but he's a mid-range WR3.
Chris Johnson? No.
