Titans quarterback Jake Locker said that his surgically-repaired shoulder has not given him any problems.

Speaking to the media on Tuesday the 24-year-old expressed some excitement about getting back to normal.

“I don’t know a whole lot about it as far as if it’s supposed to be better or stronger, but I can tell you it feels better and just the same as it did before I got hurt,” Locker said, via 247 Sports. “I haven’t had any problems with it. I haven’t had any moments with it where, I’m like, ‘Aw, man, I can feel that,’ or ‘it slipped a little bit.’ It feels great. It feels normal and I’m excited about that.”

Locker separated his shoulder in the Titans season opener against New England and dealt with it all year long.

“We still have a lot of work to do and that’s gonna be important for us the rest of these OTAs and mini-camps and then in fall camp,” Locker said. “There’s gonna have to be an emphasis on continuing to study and continuing to mentally grind so that you’re able to go out and compete at a high level and a fast speed. If we are able to do that, then this can be a really talented offense.”
