Tennessee quarterback Matt Hasselbeck should make his fourth straight start Sunday against Indianapolis.
The veteran's play in leading Tennessee to fourth-quarter comebacks each of the past two games makes it easier for Jake Locker to take his time healing up his shoulder.
Locker injured his left, non-throwing shoulder Sept. 30 for the second time in four games. He just started throwing in practice last week, and Munchak said they would discuss the quarterback's status later Monday.
Munchak says they hope Locker returns ''sooner than later'' but that the quarterback's return depends on how quickly he progresses through each stage. Munchak says Locker will start when ready to play but the Titans (3-4) don't know when that will be right now.

The Tennessee Titans believe that Jake Locker is their future franchise quarterback. While he has struggled at times to make big plays this season, Locker has looked very good at different times throughout his first couple of seasons in the NFL.

But that is the future...

Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck has led the team to a 2-1 record while Jake Locker has been nursing a shoulder injury. Their offense has also made strides with Hasselbeck under center, so its at least fair to wonder whether or not they would consider sticking with the hot-hand, rather than throw Locker back in the mix.
Head coach Mike Munchak mentioned that hes not concerned about...
