“But when it’s your turn to step up, you’ve got to step up and play, and that’s where we’re at,” Walker said.
Safety Bernard Pollard said it’s time for the next man up.
“So we trust and we are behind Fitz 100 percent,” Pollard said.
Locker isn’t the only injury the Titans are dealing with on a short week. Center Brian Schwenke hurt his right ankle and played only 15 snaps, with veteran Chris Spencer finishing the game. Munchak said Schwenke is day to day.
Damian Williams hurt his hip on a punt return and was having tests Monday after leaving on crutches, forcing the Titans to look for a new returner. Alterraun Verner handled the job after Williams was hurt, but the cornerback is tied for the NFL lead with five interceptions and the Titans are reluctant to use him in that role.
NOTES: The Titans’ injury report based on a walk-through session included RG Chance Warmack (ankle) out, along with LB Moise Fokou (left knee), LB Zaviar Gooden (hamstring). RT David Stewart (shoulder) was limited.
