Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck exited Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons with a right elbow injury that is being characterized as a "sprain".
Hasselbeck will undergo an MRI on Monday, Peter King of Sports Illustrated reported on Sunday Night Football in America.
Prior to his injury, Hasselbeck had completed 13-of-25 pass attempts for 124 yards and an interception. 2011 first-round pick Jake Locker finished the game, completing nine of 19 attempts for 140 yards and the first two touchdowns of his NFL career. Fittingly, both of Locker's touchdowns were to someone named Washington. Locker was born in Ferndale, Washington and played his college ball at the University of Washington.
Titans head coach Mike Munchak ruled out any quarterback controversy, saying there was "no doubt" that, if healthy, Hasselbeck is the team's starting quarterback, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.
Hasselbeck has completed 61.1 percent of 337 pass attempts for 2,357 yards with 14 touchdowns and eight interceptions in his first season with the Titans. At 5-5, the Titans fell two games behind the Houston Texans in the AFC South. The Titans host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next Sunday.
