Locker injured in Titans' blowout win over Jets

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jake Locker threw a career-high three touchdowns before being taken to the hospital with an injured right hip, and the Tennessee Titans beat the New York Jets 38-13 for their second straight victory.

Locker was hurt early in the third quarter when hit first by Muhammad Wilkerson after throwing an incomplete pass, then popped by Quinton Coples. He grabbed at his hip as he went to the ground and was carted off the field before being loaded into an ambulance. The Titans had no immediate word on the severity of his injury.

Alterraun Verner intercepted two passes and recovered a fumble, Karl Klug sacked Geno Smith and stripped him of the ball for a TD as the Titans turned Smith's four turnovers into 28 points. Ropati Pitoitua had two of Tennessee's five sacks as the Titans (3-1) continued their surprising start.

The Jets (2-2) couldn't overcome Smith's rookie mistakes.
