At the time of the injury, the Titans were hoping that QB Jake Locker would be back sometime this season. After a night in the hospital, an optimistic estimate put Locker back in six weeks. Last week it looked like Locker would be ready before then, and fans and coaches hoped for him to be able to start practicing full-tilt during the bye week. Now it looks like he may be a shocking active for Sunday's game vs the San Francisco 49ers.
Ian Rapoport, an NFL writer who has contacts in Tennessee had this to say.
Terry McCormick of Titaninsider.com has heard similar things apparently.
Things are looking good for Jake Locker to be on track to start Sunday for #Titans vs 49ers.— Terry McCormick (@terrymc13) October 19, 2013
So it looks like Locker will get the start for the Titans Sunday. While I expect a significant cutback in designed runs I imagine that he will be healthy enough to make all the passes with velocity.
