Locker sprained his right hip and right knee in a Sept. 29 win over the Jets in Nashville.
The Titans (3-3) have lost their last two games with Ryan Fitzpatrick as their starting quarterback.
Tennessee has a bye next week before a Nov. 3 game at St. Louis, and coach Mike Munchak had said the possibility of an extra two weeks off would play into the starting QB decision.
But Locker took increasing practice work each day this week, and the team feels he is ready to return.
Locker was outstanding prior to suffering the injury three weeks ago, completing 62.2 percent of his passes for 721 yards and six touchdowns with zero interceptions over his first four games.
