Jake Locker left Sunday's game against the New York Jets on a cart after suffering what was described as a hip injury in the third quarter. Backup Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced him.

The exact nature of the injury is unknown at the moment. Locker did give the crowd a thumbs-up signal as he left the game in the cart.

Locker was in the midst of a career day. He had completed 18-of-24 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns. The Titans were leading the Jets, 24-6, when Locker went down. His three touchdowns doubled his season total so far.
