Nate Washington Injury: Titans WR Leaves Game After Big Hit

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nate Washington was injured in the fourth quarter Sunday against the New England Patriots and left the game. He suffered a leg contusion, Comcast SportsNet New England's Mary Paoletti reported.

Washington was in the process of catching a pass from quarterback Jake Locker when he was hit by Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo. Washington lost the ball, and it was initially ruled a fumble that New England safety Patrick Chung recovered. Locker was hurt on the same play making a tackle.

Washington limped off the field with help.

The play was challenged, and the call on the field was reversed and called an incomplete pass.

Washington had two receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown Sunday before his injury. He caught a 29-yard touchdown from Locker with 10:17 left in the third quarter.

This is Washington's eighth season in the NFL after going undrafted out of Tiffin University.
