Without Locker, the winning streak may be over in Tennessee

Titans starting quarterback Jake Locker is expected to miss at least a month while he deals with a severely sprained hip muscle he suffered during the team’s 38-13 trouncing of the New York Jets. Locker took a game-ending shot from Muhammad Wilkerson (with a little added pop from Quinton Coples) in the 3rd quarter and the Titans saw their impressive season take a downward turn.

Locker had already connected on three touchdowns before being carted off the field to a local Tennessee hospital. Locker was released from the hospital on Monday after confirming that his hip had not been dislocated.

As of now, we can expect Locker to be on the sidelines for somewhere between 4-6 weeks. MRI’s revealed no major damage to his hip joint or to the MCL sprain he suffered on the same hit.

The Titans were already facing a very difficult 4 game stretch which will be severely complicated by their new starting backup quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick.
