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 vs. Bengals: Breaking Down Tennessee's Game Plan

Sep 19 2014 10:48am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

We've seen both ends of the spectrum in just two games for the Tennessee Titans, and it leaves them at 1-1 heading into their toughest game to date. The Titans will face a 2-0 Cincinnati Bengals team that looks to be a legitimate contender in the AFC. They're balanced on both offense and defense. There's no reason to think that this complete team can't make a run in the playoffs. To address the Bengals defense first, the Titans wil ...

Sep 19 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: SBNation

You might be struggling with injuries this week in your starting lineup. Here are some other options of players who can fill in for Week 3, along with the names you need to avoid. Week 2 was not the most enjoyable for fantasy owners, as injuries constantly popped up around the league. If you made it out with your starting lineup unscathed, you're one of the lucky ones. If you're not as fortunate as others and you need new options for your team, take a look at the foll ...

Can Delanie Walker Build off Huge Week 2 Performance?

Sep 17 2014 1:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Many superlatives have been thrown around in the fantasy football realm over the first two weeks of the 2014 NFL season. Seemingly few have been been directed at Delanie Walker, the Tennessee Titans tight end who posted a fabulous 10-catch, 142-yard performance in his team's Week 2 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Walker has begun his 2014 campaign on a tear (13 total catches), rewarding fantasy owner ...

All Is Not Lost for Indianapolis Colts in a Thoroughly Weak AFC South

Sep 16 2014 4:04pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

We have thoroughly chronicled the bad from Indianapolis' first two losses of the season. The organizational philosophy has failed to make the Colts an upper-echelon contender in a weak AFC. The defense, now without star outside linebacker Robert Mathis, has no pass rush.  But there are also reasons to believe that the Colts shouldn't be left for dead. Philadelphia and Denver were two of the toughest games on the schedule, and applying liberal adjustments for the quality of co ...

We are now two weeks into the NFL season, and many fantasy owners are scrambling to readjust their lineups and scour the waiver wire. There were a rash of injuries on Sunday, with Robert Griffin III, DeSean Jackson, Knowshon Moreno and A.J. Green all leaving their respective games. But a number of players also put up shockingly big numbers, so let's take a look at three of them now.   Delanie Walker, TE, Tennessee Titans I picked up Walker off the waiver wire in one of my leagues for this ...

Cowboys go to Tennessee and trip up the Titans

Sep 14 2014 3:13pm CDT | Source: ProFootballTalk

In Week One, the Titans dominated and the Cowboys got dominated. In Week Two, things were different. Dallas destroyed Tennessee 26-10 today, behind a surprisingly tough defense that looked a whole lot better than anyone imagined the Cowboys’ defense could be this season. Jake Locker had trouble all day, throwing t ...

Don't be an idiot: Week 2 NFL picks against the spread

Sep 14 2014 8:35am CDT | Source: SBNation

One trick to sports betting is to not be stupid. Here's my overall strategy when it comes to betting: Imagine the person that you would hate to watch football with the most out of anyone in the world. Imagine how they would bet these games. And do the opposite. I call it my "don't be an idiot" betting guide. Last week I told you that I am almost exactly .500 when it comes to the betting strategy of imaging the dumbest NFL fan possible and how they would bet a ...

How to watch Cowboys vs. Titans 2014: Time, TV schedule, online streaming, radio and more

Sep 14 2014 7:25am CDT | Source: SBNation

Tony Romo and the Cowboys will look to avoid going 0-2 Sunday at 1 p.m. ET against a Titans team that picked up a huge road win Week 1. Remember when everyone thought the Cowboys' defense would be terrible? Well... it is. Dallas was easily beaten by the 49ers last week, 28-17, as Tony Romo threw three interceptions in the loss. It's more of the same for the Cowboys, who continue to be hampered by a porous defense and Romo's incredibly inopportune turnovers ...

Fantasy Football Week 2: Last-Minute Player Projections and Top Sleepers

When it comes to rearranging your fantasy football roster for success, it's better late than never. There's still some time left to make the proper adjustments before Sunday's mass of Week 2 NFL showdowns take place, but proper is the key word. While most owners have their starting lineups conceivably figured out after draft day, anything from injuries, to other standouts emerging, to a sheer l ...
