NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans quarterback Jake Locker was carted off the field and taken to the hospital by ambulance Sunday after hurting his right hip early in the third quarter against the New York Jets.
Locker had just thrown an incomplete pass to Nate Washington when Muhammad Wilkerson hit the quarterback in the chest, and then Quinton Coples popped Locker in the side. Locker grabbed at his right hip area as he went to the ground with 11:14 left in the third quarter. He was carted to the locker room with his right leg straight. Locker was later loaded into an ambulance, according to video shot by WTVF-TV in Nashville.
Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced Locker.
Locker already had the first three-touchdown game of his career when he left, and he was 18 of 24 for 149 yards. He was being evaluated.
Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill suffered a head injury on New York's opening series against Tennessee, and was out for the game.
Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner stepped in front of Hill on the Jets' second offensive play and intercepted Geno Smith's pass. Safety Michael Griffin then knocked Hill down with a hit near his head, and the receiver stayed on the ground for a few minutes before being helped up and walking to the sideline.
Hill, who had his first 100-yard receiving game last week against Buffalo, was not on the field for the Jets' second offensive possession. He was evaluated, and officials announced in the second quarter that Hill would not return.
