HOUSTON (AP) - 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 tended 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. Danieal Manning and Kareem Jackson returned interceptions for touchdowns and Matt Schaub threw two TD passes in the Houston Texans' 38-14 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Arian Foster had a touchdown run for the Texans (4-0), who continued the best start in club history.

Chris Johnson carried 25 times for 141 yards, more than tripling his rushing total through the first three games.
