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.

Redskins QB Robert Griffin III says HC Jay Gruden's offense is similar to Mike Shanahan's

Jul 19 2014 11:41pm CDT | Source: Fantasy Football Toolbox

Chicago Cubs v Washington Nationals
Redskins fans and Robert Griffin's fantasy owners from 2013 probably want to forget about everything Mike Shanahan following last year's fiasco. Jay Gruden is in as the new head coach. Sean McVay is in as the new offensive coordinator. But when people watch the Redskins this season, they will see something that should remind them of Shanahan: The offense. Griffin said so. quot;I think having two years' experience running an offense, a pro-level offense, West Coast type, this is ...

Fantasy Football 2014: Making the Case for Kendall Wright

Jul 11 2014 2:28am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Snow Lodge x Eveleigh Host "Cold In July" Dinner And Party - 2014 Park City
Heading into the 2014 season, the Tennessee Titans' Kendall Wright is perhaps the most underappreciated wide receiver in fantasy football circles. He doesn't get nearly the respect he deserves, and his is a name you should get to know prior to your draft. Yes, some do laud him for being a major player in points-per-reception leagues (and he does, of course, hold significantly more value there), but Wright can be very useful in standard leagues as well. Enterin ...

NFL players in contract years who could cash in

OMEGA Speedmaster Dark Side Of The Moon
Big names are heading into contract years, including Brian Orakpo, Jake Locker and Jason Pierre-Paul. Who stands to gain or lose the most from the 2014 season? Contract years must be a terrifying thing for NFL players. In exchange for a shot at a big salary, they put themselves of a lot of physical abuse, certainly, but perhaps overlooked is the mental stress. The idea that one's livelihood can ...
