Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker suffered a hip injury which sidelined him the rest of the way in his team's 38-13 win over the New York Jets on Sunday.

The Tennessee Titans' 38-13 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday saw Titans quarterback Jake Locker suffering a hip injury. 

Locker was carted off the field with him flashing the thumbs-up sign after he took a hard hit from Jets defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson and and Quinton Coples in the third quarter. He landed awkwardly on his right leg and was lay still on the field for several minutes. 

Locker's hip was X-rayed in the locker room and was taken to the hospital for further evaluation, per Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean

Dan Hanzus of NFL.com points out that Titans head coach Mike Munchak made it clear after the game that Locker wasn't taken to the hospital for surgery. An intitial evaluation of the hip at LP Field indicates there are no signs of dislocation. 

Locker went 18 of 24 for 149 yards and three touchdowns before he was taken out of the game. 

In his absence, backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick took over. He promptly made his presence felt with a 77-yard heave in the fourth quarter which Nate Washington caught in the end zone for the game's final tally.

Wyatt says the Titans realize he could be their quarterback "for weeks to come, if not the remainder of the season," an indication of the extent of Locker's injury. 

Titans wide receiver Damian Williams said the 25-point victory was "bittersweet" in light of the Locker incident.

"It is definitely bittersweet. Obviously you have to enjoy the win. It is the first time we've performed like this together, offensively and defensively. But when your general goes down, when your captain goes down, it is definitely tough for the team. We're all praying and hoping for the best." 

Teammate and fullback Collin Mooney weighed in. He said, "I could tell he was in pain. He was wincing. The first thing he asked was,'Did he catch the ball?' That's Jake for you." 

The game against the Jets was ultimately decided by turnovers, which the Titans scored 28 points off. New York rookie quarterback Geno Smith accounted for two of those turnovers, in addition to two fumbles. 

Tennessee upped its record to 3-1 while New York dropped to 2-2.

Nov 3 2014 1:00pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Las Vegas is as lost as anyone when it comes to the 2014-15 Super Bowl with Week 10 on approach. Seattle has lost at home. New England has resurrected to championship form. Denver folds on the road.

NFL Power Rankings Week 10: Predicting Post 'Monday Night Football' Standings

Nov 3 2014 10:00am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

We are now more than halfway through the 2014 NFL season, which means the sample size is large enough to start trusting the patterns. However, in typical NFL fashion, the majority of the league is decidedly close with three, four or five losses. The parity is strong as ever this year, which makes distinguishing between the teams particularly difficult. Week 9 did bring a vintage New England Patriots performan ...

Steelers Look Like Playoff Contenders Behind MVP-Worthy Season from Big Ben

Nov 3 2014 12:10am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

These aren't your daddy's Pittsburgh Steelers. Thanks to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, they're better. In Week 9, the Big Ben-led Steelers defeated the Baltimore Ravens 43-23 behind 340 passing yards and six touchdowns from their quarterback. Antonio Brown was Roethlisberger's favorite receiver yet again with 144 receiving yards on 11 catches. This on a really rough rushing day for the team (only 55 yards on 25 carries). The win imp ...

The Titans offer few noteworthy fantasy performances in Week 8 loss to Texans

Oct 27 2014 8:25am CDT | Source: SBNation

A rookie quarterback. A lackluster offensive effort. There's little to celebrate for fantasy owners of Tennessee Titans players in Week 8. The Tennessee Titans have been looking for an answer at quarterback all season. They needed a spark after starting the season 2-5. With Jake Locker struggling when he's actually able to stay on the field and Charlie Whitehurst playing like the backup he is, the Titans arguably had nothing to lose w ...

NFL Trade Rumors: Latest Gossip Before Sunday's Week 8 Games

Though the NFL trade deadline usually brings less activity than in other sports, recent weeks have illustrated how transactions can emerge without warning.  The Percy Harvin bombshell holds significant implications for the defending champions, while the New England Patriots also addressed a pressing edge-rushing need by buying low on the once-promising Akeem Ayers. With a pair of Super Bowl contenders shifting their rosters, it seems natural ...

Ben Stiller — Oh Sorry, Zach Mettenberger Is Starting For The Titans

Zach Mettenberger was a shoe-in starter at the beginning of the year. Jake Locker got injured, as always. And Charlie Whitehurst proved he wasn’t a capable NFL starter, as always. But who knew he had so much White Goodman in him? With that mustache get-up, he looks like Ben Stiller’s character from Dodgeball. Zach Mettenberger went Globo Gym on everyone’s ass.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning broke the all-time touchdown passing record in dismantling the San Francisco 49ers this last Sunday. Now Manning kicks off Week 8 at Mile High and faces the AFC West rival San Diego Chargers. It's hard to argue against the Broncos being the best team in the AFC—if not the entire NFL. Manning has a lot to do with that, as a great QB situation can help rosters overcome any number of deficiencies. A luxurious slew o ...
