Locker on track?
Titans quarterback Jake Locker (shoulder) and linebacker Colin McCarthy (ankle), both hurt in Sunday’s 34-13 loss to the Patriots, had MRIs. Locker hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder on a tackle, but coach Mike Munchak said he feels good about the QB playing against San Diego, even though Locker may split work in practice Wednesday with Matt Hasselbeck . . . Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold returned to St. Louis after spending the night in Detroit with a neck injury sustained against the Lions that coach Jeff Fisher called a ‘‘significant strain.’’ Saffold was discharged Sunday night from a hospital after results of several medical tests were negative. Fisher declined to speculate on a time frame for Saffold’s return. The Rams lost another offensive lineman, center Scott Wells, in their opening loss. Wells broke a bone in his left foot and needs surgery . . . Fisher said a mistake by the clock operator late in the last-second loss at Detroit in essence gave the Lions an extra timeout that changed how the finish played out in the Rams’ 27-23 defeat.
Redskins rookie safety Jordan Bernstine is out for the season with torn ligaments in his right knee. The team replaced him with third-year safety Jordan Pugh, cut this month by the Panthers. Bernstine was injured on a kickoff in Sunday’s 40-32 win over the Saints. Also, Skins coach Mike Shanahan said X-rays were negative on receiver Pierre Garcon’s sore right foot. And the team found out Monday that long snapper Nick Sundberg broke his left arm in the first half and continued to play, snapping four times for punts, twice for field goals, and twice for extra points in the second half. He will be out for at least a few weeks . . . Falcons cornerback Brent Grimes is out for the year after an Achilles’ tendon injury in a 40-24 win at Kansas City . . . Dolphins guard Richie Incognito says there’s no validity to complaints by the Texans of dirty play by him Sunday.
