Veteran Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will make his second straight start when the Titans play Pittsburgh on Thursday, Titans coach Mike Munchak said Monday, according to the Tennessean.
Jake Locker injured his shoulder two weeks ago, and he was replaced by Hasselbeck, who struggled in the Titans’ 30-7 loss to Minnesota on Sunday.
There have been varying reports on how long Locker is expected to be out, although apparently he won’t be back this week. Locker has completed 63.2 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and two interceptions in four games, all of which he started.
Hasselbeck, 37, has completed 62 percent of his passes with three TDs and three interceptions in three games, including one start.
