NASHVILLE (AP) — Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck says he will start Sunday against Tampa Bay and coach Mike Munchak agrees after watching the veteran go through a limited practice Wednesday.
Hasselbeck banged his right elbow off a defender in last week’s 23-17 loss to Atlanta midway through the third quarter. He told Tampa Bay reporters Wednesday in a conference call that he will start against the Buccaneers (4-6), then went out and practiced.
Munchak said Hasselbeck looked good.
“We didn’t ask him to throw a lot of deep balls today. He’ll start doing that tomorrow, just want to be cautious there,” Munchak said. “If it was up to us, we probably wouldn’t have practiced him at all like we hadn’t the last few weeks just to rest him in general and not necessarily because of the arm.
“He wanted obviously to be out here and get some throws and do some things.”
