Long-time Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will get the start this Sunday as his current team, the Tennessee Titans, faces the Indianapolis Colts, according to Pro Football Talk. The opening-game starter, Jake Locker still hasn't recovered from an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.

Former Washington standout Jake Locker began the season as the starting quarterback for the Tennessee Titans, but has been injured for the past three games. He had been playing well, completing 63 percent of his passes and posting a 90.2 quarterback rating.

Matt Hasselbeck has taken the reins of the Tennessee offense with Locker on the sideline. His numbers haven't been spectacular, as he has thrown four interceptions and possesses just a 78.2 passer rating. However, the results for the team with Hasselbeck at the helm have been good, as the Titans have won two of his three starts and are now back in the AFC playoff race as 3-4.
