Titans coach Mike Munchak told reporters Wednesday that Locker is expected to start Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Locker hasn't played since separating his non-throwing shoulder in Week 4 against the Houston Texans. After splitting reps with Matt Hasselbeck in Wednesday's practice, Locker is one step closer to returning to the field.
Here's the rest of the big injury news from Wednesday:
- Owen Daniels missed Wednesday's practice with a hip injury. The Texans tight end is set to undergo tests. Nose tackle Shaun Cody is day to day with "rib issues," according to coach Gary Kubiak. A person familiar with Cody's status told the Houston Chronicle he suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung in a win over the Buffalo Bills. Ben Tate (hamstring) and Kevin Walter (groin) didn't practice.
- New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks missed practice Wednesday after his knee swelled up. Guard Chris Snee (ankle) didn't practice, either, ahead of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) also sat out, but his backfield partner, Andre Brown (shoulder), was back on the field.
