Titans quarterback Jake Locker has hurt his right hand in the second quarter against the Cleveland Browns, and he is questionable to return.

Locker went to the locker room with a team doctor after being hit high on a blitz by Browns cornerback Buster Skrine. Charlie Whitehurst replaced him and threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Kendall Wright for a 21-3 lead.

The Titans quarterback missed last week's 41-14 loss at Indianapolis with an injured wrist on his right, throwing arm. That was his 15th game missed because of injury.

Locker was 8 of 11 for 79 yards and a TD, and he also had 34 yards rushing and a touchdown on which he was hit high by Browns linebacker Chris Kirskey in the end zone.
