The quarterback the Tennessee Titans are pinning their hopes to in 2013 is making progress in his recovery from the serious foot injury that ended his season.

Jake Locker told Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean that the hardware needed to repair a Lisfranc injury in his right foot has been removed, and that he is out of his walking boot.

“Surgery went really well. Foot feels awesome and rehab is up and rolling,” Locker told Wyatt Thursday via text. “Doctors were happy with how things looked so (I’m) just continuing to follow that trend.”

That’s encouraging. The sooner Locker is all the way back and able to work with coach Ken Whisenhunt, offensive coordinator Jason Michael and quarterbacks coach John McNulty, the sooner he learns the offense and the better chance he has of excelling in it.

The Titans can be better with coaching upgrades, system changes and roster revisions. But they can only go so far without solid play and a consistent presence from Locker.
