06:39 PM ET 10.03 | The Tennessee Titans received a big scare in Week 4 when starting quarterback Jake Locker went down with what looked to be a serious hip injury. However, since then we have learned that Locker suffered only a hip sprain that should keep him out of action for a few weeks but not end his season. When speaking of his injury in a recent interview, Locker said that he feels very lucky to have avoided a serious injury. The hits that injured Locker have been a hot topic of discussion, but the quarterback does not feel that Jets defenders Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples were acting maliciously or delivering dirty hits during the play in which he was injured, despite the fines they received from the league.

Muhammad Wilkerson is a clean player. He's just a big strong dude.
