Titans QB Mettenberger exits early

Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) – Tennessee Titans quarterback Zach
Mettenberger left Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans after taking a hit
from J.J. Watt in the third quarter.

Mettenberger’s pass had already been away when Watt took two steps, tackled
the vulnerable QB and landed with his full body weight on top of him.

No flag was thrown on the play.

Mettenberger stayed on the ground for several minutes before gingerly walking
to the sideline. He made his way to the locker room favoring his right
shoulder.

Jake Locker, who was replaced by Mettenberger as the Titans’ starter last
month, came on in relief, and his first pass was intercepted.

The Titans were losing, 24-7, at the time of Mettenberger’s injury. The rookie
had thrown for 184 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
