Fox Sports Tennessee:
NASHVILLE Tennessee quarterback Matt Hasselbeck left Sunday's game with New Orleans with a left calf injury 11:13 left in the second quarter and his return was listed as questionable.
On a bizarre series of plays, the Titans had three consecutive penalties called on their offensive line and faced a 1st-and-35. Hasselbeck went back to pass, had his throw tipped into the air and leaped to try and bat it down.
He then sat on the field receiving medical attention for a few minutes before walking off gingerly.
Rookie Jake Locker replaced Hasselbeck. On his second drive, he completed a 31-yard pass to tight end Craig Stevens that led to a 43-yard field goal by Rob Bironas that tied the game at 3-3 with 6:42 left before halftime.
Locker completed 3 of his first 6 passes for 51 yards. Hasselbeck was 4-for-6 for 35 before leaving.
In his most extensive action this season, Locker went 9-for-19 for 140 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

Matt Hasselbeck has had to leave today's game against the Saints with a lower leg injury.
He was not hit on the play, but it looked like he may have suffered either an ankle or an Achilles injury. Either way, its hard to imagine him returning because he was unable to put any pressure on that leg. Jake Locker will take over for Hasselbeck, who had passed for 35 yards...
Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has hurt his left calf and is questionable to return against the New Orleans Saints. Hasselbeck was hurt in the second quarter Sunday after Saints tackle Shaun Rogers tipped his pass up into the air. The Titans quarterback ran up toward the line after the ball, then came up hopping without putting his foot down.
Tennessee coach Mike Munchak says Matt Hasselbeck is sore but walking around despite a left calf injury. Whether the veteran quarterback is strong enough to start against winless Indianapolis remains to be seen.
