Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker, the former UW star, remained hospitalized Monday morning while undergoing more tests on his injured hip, hurt during Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

From The Tennessean newspaper:

Initial indications are the injury isn’t as bad as first feared, but the Titans remain unclear of the extent of the damage until they seeresults of an MRI. At that point it will be determined how much time Locker might miss.

The third-year pro was injured in the third quarter of Sunday’s 38-13 win over the Jets when defensive linemen Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples hit him while throwing a pass.

The injury occurred early in the third quarter while Locker was having the best game of his NFL career. He was 18 of 24 for 149 yards and a career-high three touchdowns at the time.
