Quin knocks Locker out of game

By Paul Kuharsky

HOUSTON -- The Titans' formation on third-and-7 from their own 12-yard line was questionable. Safety Glover Quin lined up on the defensive left and blitzed unblocked.

The play could have a major bearing on Jake Locker's growth and progress.

Running back Javon Ringer was lined up to Locker’s left in a shotgun, and Ringer ran a pass route left while Quin came from Locker’s right.

He crushed Locker, who wound up writhing on the ground after managing to maintain possession. He left the field to get checked out. The Titans said it was a left shoulder injury and labeled his return as questionable.

I feel comfortable as labeling it just short of impossible.

Matt Hasselbeck will take over when the Titans get the ball back.
