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.

NFL Picks Week 8: Complete Score Predictions and Updated Game Lines

Oct 24 2014 3:37pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Denver Broncos were the first team to make bettors happy in Week 8. A 14-point victory on Thursday Night Football was enough to beat the San Diego Chargers—and the spread. That was only an appetizer, as there will be plenty more opportunities to get the best of Vegas oddsmakers with 14 more games on the week's slate. We may be in for a few surprises in Week 8. After all, there are plenty of wild car ...

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

Oct 23 2014 10:55pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

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.

NFL Power Rankings: Breaking Down All 32 Teams Before Week 8

Oct 23 2014 6:34pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

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 of talent has been assem ...

Denard Robinson's Fantasy Value Worth Monitoring as Workload Increases

Oct 23 2014 12:13am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Maybe the Jacksonville Jaguars backfield isn't a lost cause after all. Following Toby Gerhart's brutal start to 2014, the Jags appear that they could elevate Denard Robinson into the starting role on a regular basis. And fantasy football owners may want to do the same. With 127 rushing yards last week against the Cleveland Browns, Robinson jumped ahead of Gerhart as Jacksonville's leading rusher; he's got 221 yards and a touchdown on the season. His Week 7 performa ...

NFL Picks Week 8: Updated Lines and Final-Score Predictions for All Games

Oct 22 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Bettors will take notice that the NFL Week 8 offerings from Las Vegas are mostly a little too close for comfort. Some call it parity, but for one reason or another, this season has not been kind to bettors or the house as upsets routinely pepper the schedule and throw everyone for a loop. Take the defending champs, for example, as the Seattle Seahawks lost two weeks ago at home and then went out and lost to the St. Louis Rams last week. Funnily en ...

Week 8 Survivor Pool Picks For Every NFL Game

Oct 21 2014 4:44pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

With the season dwindling, the odds of benefiting from the original “locks” segment in your survivor pool are low. So, instead of going with the standard three locks, two values, and one upset special format, I’m picking every game. This allows you to sift through the teams you’ve already used in your survivor pool and find the winners I feel the best about. Denver vs San Diego The Chargers tend to do well when they control the ball and melt time off the clock, but Peyton Manni ...

NFL Power Rankings Week 8: Latest Outlook and 2014-15 Super Bowl Odds

Oct 20 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The presence of parity, the "any given Sunday" adage that made its way to the silver screen and the microwaved age we live in tends to produce overreactions on a weekly basis in the NFL. That's what makes power rankings such a point of heated, constant debate. Week 7 saw a number of surprise results, which may not have altered the actual standings as much as individual perceptions of all 32 teams. With just one Monday night game remaining on the Week 7 schedule, it's now k ...
