Locker, who missed last week's game with a thumb injury, was limited in practice this week. He is listed as questionable.

Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt was vague on Locker's status.

"I admire the way he is working, and he is getting better,'' Whisenhunt said of Locker. "He has progressed."

Progressing isn't ready, however. It would mark Locker's third missed game of the season after missing 14 the past two years.
