Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker was confirmed to be ruled out for the rest of the 2013 NFL season with a right foot injury.

After losing to the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars, the Tennessee Titans received another blow: quarterback Jake Locker is out for the season. 

According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennesseean, Locker suffered a Lisfranc injury on his right foot when he was scampering for eight yards in the second quarter against the Jaguars. He fumbled on the next play and then went to the sidelines. Team physicians accompanied him to the locker room for X-rays.  

Locker offered his own take on what happened.

"I don't know exactly what happened, but when I got up from that run I could feel it. It's tough. You want to be on the football field with your teammates...A lot of times your character is tested through adversity and it's up to you to deal with it in the most positive way for yourself and your football team." 

Wyatt stressed it still remains unclear whether the third-year play caller will undergo surgery.

Titans head coach Mike Munchak also touched on this subject when he spoke with ESPN's Paul Kuharsky. 

"We don't know as far as when and if he'll need surgery and how they will handle that going forward. But he won't play the rest of the year.

"It's very disappointing, it's hard on the team...To lose him now is a huge blow." 

The injury trend for Locker continues. He missed five games in 2012 because of a shoulder injury that required surgery. On Sept. 29, he sat out two games after he sustained hip and knee injuries in a home game against the New York Jets.   

Ryan Fitzpatrick, who took over when Locker went down with the injury in the Jacksonville game, will start at quarterback when the Titans face the Indianapolis Colts on Nov. 14. Rusty Smith moves up to the main backup spot. 

Fitzpatrick has passed for 790 yards and four touchdowns in 2013. He also has four interceptions and five fumbles. 

With Locker under center, Tennessee started at 3-1 but has stumbled to a 1-4 record since then.
