There was a scary scene on Sunday  afternoon when the Tennessee Titans watched their starting quarterback Jake Locker taken off the field on a straightboard. Locker was having an impressive season, before he took the big hit and awkward fall that resulted in what appeared to be a significant hip injury.

The good news for the Titans, however, is that the injury is not expected to be season-ending.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter had the report.

It is still obviously significant time and could make Titans fans feel uneasy about the season now that they have to roll with Ryan Fitzpatrick, but at least he can be back for the final stretch of the season.

If Fitzpatrick can keep the team on the current track they are in, then Locker could return just in time to help the team on their playoff run.
