Titans QB Locker Hurt in Loss

HOUSTON -- Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker injured his left shoulder after being sacked by the Houston Texans in the first quarter on Sunday, and missed the rest of the game.

He returned to the sideline in the second quarter in street clothes with his left arm in a sling. Locker injured the same shoulder in Tennessee's season-opening loss against New England.

Tennessee coach Mike Munchak said after Sunday's 38-14 loss in Houston that Locker was "sore" and will undergo an MRI exam Monday.

Locker was sacked by Glover Quin and thrown to the ground. He remained there for a few minutes in pain while trainers attended to him. He eventually got up and walked off the field before being taken to the locker room.

Matt Hasselbeck came in for Locker and completed 17 of 25 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns. He also threw two interceptions that were both returned for Houston touchdowns.
