With Jake Locker suffering an injury on Sunday, the Tennessee Titans are in need of a backup quarterback for Ryan Fitzpatrick who becomes the starter moving forward. It was initially believed that Locker had just suffered a knee injury, but at this afternoon’s press conference, head coach Mike Munchak revealed that he had a slight injury to his knee as well. Although reports vary, Locker could be out as many as eight weeks according to reports.
Tennessee finds themselves at a surprising 3-1 record and tied for the division lead. The Titans have been carrying just two quarterbacks on the roster and Locker’s injury makes it imperative that they find another body for the roster.
Mike Garafolo reports on Twitter this afternoon that Tennessee will bring in journeyman quarterback David Carr. “With Jake Locker banged up, the Titans will work out free agent David Carr tomorrow, per a source.”
Carr has limited starting or even game experience since the 2007 season. This seems a bit of a stretch for the Titans to undertake if they do indeed sign him.
Carr entered the league in 2003 and was the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans for several seasons. He has spent time with the Carolina Panthers, San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants. His best season came in 2004 when he threw for over 3,000 yards with 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions.
