    Looked real bad.

    I can't believe there was no flag on the play. That hit was not only illegal, but late.

    Ice up, Leodis.

    Looked (I'm guessing)like a dislocated hip but it is so hard to tell really what part of the leg he hurt.

    Agreed. that ball was long gone and he took the first hit. The second his by the other defender was just icing. Rest assured tho if that was Brady there would of been a flag.

    This is extremely unfortunate for Locker and the Titans. I've always been a big fan of Locker and he's looked tremendous this year for the Titans. There should have been a flag....but that doesn't help his hip....

    Good news for the Titans,looks like he'll miss a few weeks...


    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans got a diagnosis on Jake Locker's right hip injury Tuesday and said the starting quarterback avoided major damage and has a sprain that shouldn't keep him out too long.

    Jake Locker was carted off on Sunday but the Titans said Tuesday that an MRI performed on his hip showed he has no major damage.
    Locker suffered the sprained hip and a sprained MCL in his right knee on a third-quarter combination hit from the New York Jets' Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples.

    "We received reassuring reports from the second MRI today and they confirmed that there was no major damage to Jake Locker's hip joint -- it is classified as a sprained hip," the Titans said in a statement.

    "The area will need time to heal and strengthen, but he won't require surgery and he has already begun a rehab routine for both his hip and knee. We certainly would expect him to miss a few weeks, but we are encouraged by the news today."

    The 3-1 Titans play the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. They are at Seattle on Oct. 13 and host San Francisco on Oct. 20. The Titans have a bye the following week. Perhaps Locker will return when they resume play on Nov. 3 at St. Louis.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick will start while Locker is out. The Titans haven't yet made a decision on Fitzpatrick's backup. They could promote Rusty Smith from the practice squad. They were slated to work out David Carr on Tuesday.

    John Skelton was also scheduled to work out Tuesday, but an NFL source confirmed to ESPN.com's Bill Williamson that Skelton will sign with the San Francisco 49ers.
