Jake Locker went down in the first game of the year with a dislocated shoulder, and the injury plagued him all season. After a season's worth of pain, he's finally getting it repaired.
Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that Locker had a procedure to fix his left (non-throwing) shoulder. Locker should be ready for training camp, though not necessarily mini camp.
The most troubling detail is that there's really no guarantee the issue won't resurface if Locker takes a big hit in the wrong way.
Nothing changes the trajectory of a player's career as much as injuries. Already, the injury prohibited Locker's growth and cost him valuable playing time.
