BananaStock(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — Titans quarterback Jake Locker will miss the rest of the season after suffering a Lisfranc injury to his right foot, during Sunday’s 29-27 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tennessee made the move official on Tuesday, placing the third-year veteran on injured reserve.

In seven games this season, Locker was 111 of 183 passing attempts for 1,256 yards and eight touchdowns. He also rushed for 155 yards and two TD’s on 24 carries.

The Titans will now turn to backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, whom the club signed in March. In two starts this season, Tennessee lost to the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks.

To take Locker’s place on the roster, the Titans promoted wide receiver Devon Wylie from the practice squad.
