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.

Titans WR Justin Hunter has been 'all but unstoppable' at the goal line

Aug 22 2014 1:44am CDT | Source: Fantasy Football Toolbox

Hearing Justin Hunter get compared to Randy Moss is nothing new. The Titans' young wideout has heard those refrains since his days at the University of Tennessee. Even one of his teammates said it last month. He is just that physically talented. One thing Moss was known for in his amazing career was his leaping ability. Hunter has similar hops -- he recorded a vertical leap of nearly 40 inches at the NFL Combine -- and has been putting them to good use in camp. P ...

Zach Mettenberger Must Improve in the Pocket to Be Titans Starting Quarterback

Aug 21 2014 3:13pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Zach Mettenberger's first game against meaningful competition for the Tennessee Titans showed exactly why he was a sixth-round pick. He made a handful of bullet throws against tight coverage, and he completed 20-of-25 passes for 269 yards. He also turned the ball over twice, lacked the vision to see underneath zone defenders, and was inconsistent at responding positively to pressure.  In other words: the sum of his skills (and off-field problem ...

Aug 20 2014 5:03pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter is the ultimate fantasy sleeper heading into 2014. In a sense, his boom-or-bust potential makes him highly intriguing as a potential pick.  Although Hunter is far from a household name, he does have outstanding athleticism. He was an elite high school player at Ocean Lakes High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Scout.com had him rated as a 4-star prospect.  Hunter also was a prolific track and fi ...

If you don't know the name Bishop Sankey by now, well, you just don't care. Which is totally fine, by the way. People who do ...
