Hasselbeck to start for Titans on Sunday

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak announced Wednesday that Matt Hasselbeck will start at quarterback in place of the injured Jake Locker for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Locker suffered a left shoulder injury during last Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Houston Texans. He will not need surgery.

Hasselbeck has completed 23-of-36 passes for 236 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in two relief appearances for Locker this season.

Rusty Smith will back up Hasselbeck this week.
