"Locker has risen to the challenge, and been more consistent than anyone thought he would be, including myself. So at this point, I believe the starting job is now Locker's to lose," Wyatt writes.
Locker gets his first start on Friday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The third preseason game is seen as the true "dress rehearsal" for the regular season and Titans coach Mike Munchak wants to have his starter decided before that game so top quarterback can get as much work as possible in that game. Friday night's game against the Bucs should be Locker's last test.
If Locker plays well against the Bucs, we'd expect him to start Week 1 against the New England Patriots.
