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 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 ...

Titans fantasy football recap: Bishop Sankey and offense stay quiet

Oct 20 2014 7:05am CDT | Source: SBNation

The Titans couldn't move the ball much against Washington. We break down the fantasy implications. The Tennessee Titans are never going to be an offensive powerhouse, but not being able to put up points against Washington is a bad sign they'll be even a offense capable of producing a WR2 or RB2 in fantasy. They only made it into the red zone once in Sunday's 17-16 loss and never got into a rhythm. Charlie Whitehurst: Checkdown Charlie was up to his old tricks, comp ...

Fantasy Football Starter Rankings, Week 7: Jimmy Graham is Active and Will Play Against the Lions

Oct 19 2014 10:44am CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Jimmy Graham is active for this week, as announced by the Saints Twitter account, so we can assume it is good. This though, brings me to a quasi-rant about injury info in the NFL. We eat up knowing who is in/out each week. The actual accuracy rate of such info? Not so much. We have seen reports of both Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery being likely out for a Sunday Night game (they played). On Graham, we sa ...

It's nice for Titans fans that the team won and all, but the fantasy performances just weren't there Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications. The Tennessee Titans beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 16-14 Sunday, cementing the win with a last-second blocked field goal. Despite the win, the fantasy production out of the Titans left a lot to be desired. The Titans managed only one touchdown in the game, and with no players going for more than 77 ...
