Injury roundup: Jake Locker hospitalized with hurt hip

The Tennessee Titans have been perhaps the most surprising team in the NFL this season. Jake Locker probably played the two best games of his career over the last two weeks.

Locker's season, and the Titans' relevancy, now depend on the status of Locker's injured right hip. The injury he suffered during Sunday's 38-13 win over the New York Jets did not look pretty -- he was hospitalized -- but we won't know anything about his status until Monday. It was a nasty day for injuries. Here are the other issues we'll be tracking throughout the week:

1. The Oakland Raiders lost Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Marcel Reece (knee) to injuries early in the 24-14 loss to the Washington Redskins. They quickly were declared out, and Rashad Jennings took over in the backfield.

2. Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris was knocked out with a rib injury in the fourth quarter. He did not return, but coach Mike Shanahan said after the game that Morris didn't break anything.
