Titans | Jake Locker ready to throw

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) will be ready to throw without limitations during organized team activities that start next week. He underwent surgery around 20 weeks ago to fix his non-throwing shoulder that popped out of joint multiple times last year. The team will be installing a run-first offense this year under offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. "He plays sometimes with a linebacker mentality, and I know it's sometimes for the effect. He wants his teammates to see how tough he is, but he needs to learn to take care of himself. You know his speed and the ability to run and throw on the run is something we want to take advantage of," Loggains said.

Fantasy Tip: Locker should be considered a risky backup selection this year based on injury concerns and the team's changing offensive philosophy. However, if he can stay healthy, Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and this year's draft choice, Justin Hunter, could provide plenty of targets for Locker.
