Ryan Fitzpatrick suffers hip injury in season opener

Ryan Fitzpatrick’s Washington Football Team debut ended quickly. 

The veteran quarterback exited Sunday’s game against Los Angeles in the second quarter after he was hit by Chargers edge-rusher Uchenna Nwosu on an incomplete pass attempt. The hit left Fitzpatrick on the ground in pain, requiring a visit from trainers before being helped to the sideline. 

Fitzpatrick did not return to the game, being ruled out with a hip injury, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke filled in.
