NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans head coach Mike Munchak confirmed Monday quarterback Jake Locker will miss the rest of the season due to a foot injury.

Munchak, confirming it's a Lisfranc injury, said they are still deciding on surgery options for Locker.

Locker ran an option play in the second quarter Sunday and was hit by Jaguars linebacker Russell Allen. Locker said he wasn't sure if he caught his foot or someone landed on him. But Locker limped back to the huddle and turned the ball over on the next play when he was so hobbled he couldn't hand off cleanly to Chris Johnson.

Coach Mike Munchak noted that turnover cost the Titans at least a chance at a field goal. He said they thought Locker was shaking it off and didn't realize how hurt the quarterback was until the next play.

The Jaguars recovered and went on to win their first game this season 29-27.

''That's not CJ's fault,'' Locker said. ''I wasn't able to get to him. I just kind of got to the point I was tired of having to come off the field because I was hurt. I wanted to give it a chance and just wasn't able to push off like I wanted to.''

Locker initially sprained his right hip and knee Sept. 29 against the Jets, costing him two games. He also missed five games last season with an injured non-throwing shoulder. He returned to the sideline by the start of the fourth quarter wearing street clothes.

Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced Locker and threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for a 4-yard TD, but Fitzpatrick was stripped of the ball in the fourth quarter by Will Blackmon who ran it back 21 yards for a TD.

The Titans also had rookie center Brian Schwenke hurt his right ankle in the first half, and he was replaced by veteran Chris Spencer. Damian Williams hurt his quadriceps was hurt on a punt return, and he also was using crutches when he returned to the sideline.

Jaguars receiver Stephen Burton also suffered a head injury announced in the fourth quarter.
