Titans Quarterback Locker Won’t Require Surgery for Hip Strain

Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker’s hip injury was diagnosed as a sprain and won’t require surgery.

Locker had a second set of tests today and probably will miss “a few weeks” the National Football League team said today in a statement on its website. The 25-year-old was carted off the field after sustaining hip and knee sprains on Sept. 29 against the New York Jets.

“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,” the team said in the statement.

Locker was injured in the third quarter two days ago on a hit from Jets defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples. He lay motionless on the field for several minutes before being removed on a motorized cart and taken to a hospital.

Locker has completed 62.2 percent of his passes this year for six touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s already been ruled out for the team’s next game against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to coach Mike Munchak, and Ryan Fitzpatrick will start in his absence.
