    Titans quarterback Jake Locker is expected to return to Nashville in the coming days after undergoing surgery on Wednesday in Charlotte, N.C., to repair a Lisfranc injury.

    Coach Mike Munchak said surgery went well with “no surprises”, but was unclear on his exact recovery time. Locker will need time to recover from surgery before beginning rehab. Indications are Locker could need up to 5-6 months to completely heal.

    The Titans will begin the offseason program in May, and the team is expected to hold the majority of its organized team activities in June.

    Training camp is expected to begin in late July.

    “(Jake) heals a little different than other people, but we assume he’ll be able to do something this spring,’’ Munchak said. “I’m sure it’s something that will be adjusted as he goes through the rehab process.

    “We know he’ll be ready for training camp and OTAs and it is just a matter of exactly how the whole thing will work.”

    You know with how we operate Fitzy is coming back.

    We're not getting anyone new I bet.

    My guess is Munchak wins some games this next 6 game stretch, is allowed to come back in 2014 under Tommie Smith, and thats the make or break year for him.

    Once again our future is on hold.
