Titans quarterback Jake Locker is "likely" headed to the injured reserve-designated to return list after injuring his right hip Sunday, according to a report from NFL.com.

Locker sustained the injury during Tennessee's 38-13 win over the New York Jets.

It's unknown how long Locker will be out, though a short-term IR placement will put the quarterback out until at least December.

The Titans, at 3-1, will now turn to Ryan Fitzpatrick to lead the offense while Locker is out. Fitzpatrick did throw a deep touchdown to Nate Washington during Sunday's win.
