Washington quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will undergo an MRI scan on his hip after he was forced to leave the season opening game against the San Diego Chargers, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Fitzpatrick was hit hard by Los Angeles defensive end Uchenna Nwosu in the second quarter and was helped off the field. Taylor Heinicke replaced the 38-year-old quarterback for the rest of the game, which Washington eventually lost 20-16.

Fitzpatrick expressed his excitement before the new season started.

“It’s a huge honor to be one of the 32 guys that is leading a team in the action on Sunday,” said Fitzpatrick before Week 1 kicked off. “To be a starting quarterback in the NFL is such a privilege and I’m so honored and humbled to be able to do it. And so, it’s definitely not something I take lightly. It’s not a responsibility I take lightly, but it’s also not something I take for granted.”

Fitzpatrick joined the league after he was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the 2005 NFL Draft. Entering his 16th season in the NFL, he has played for numerous teams before playing for the Washington Football Team, such as the Miami Dolphins, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the New York Jets.

“This is something I’ve worked very hard to do and I know there’s a lot of people in and outside of this building that are counting on me to go out there and perform,” Fitzpatrick said. “So, it’s a huge honor and it’s something that, especially Week 1 getting out there, getting the season started the right way. It’s a very big deal for me.”
