Mike Munchak announced yesterday that Matt Hasselbeck will start for the injured Jake Locker when they take on the Minnesota Vikings. "We're going to start Matt at quarterback this weekend and ... (have) given Jake the week off," Munchak said. "Jake's sore today as he was yesterday. ... Even though he'll probably be better the next couple days, we don't want to have him suit up as the backup. We felt that if he couldn't start, we'd rather him not suit up ... let him rest the next couple days." Locker injured his non-throwing shoulder in their 38-14 loss to the Texans last week. He earlier separated the same shoulder Locker in week one's loss to the Patriots. Munchak and the Titans are taking a "day by day" approach with him, and Locker will get some much needed rest and hopt for the best "It's just as fast as my body can respond to it," Locker said (AP). "I'll do my best to get back there as soon as I can, and as coach Munch (said), we'll just take it week to week."
