Hasselbeck injury not serious, but may not start Sunday

Matt Hasselbeck's injured right elbow has no serious damage an MRI taken on Monday revealed, but the quarterback still might not be able to make his scheduled start Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Hasselbeck, according to TitanInsider.com, will have to test the elbow to see how much strength he has throwing the football and also his pain tolerance in order to start against the Buccaneeers.

Hasselbeck was injured in the third quarter of Sunday's 23-17 loss to Atlanta, and rookie Jake Locker came off the bench to throw two touchdown passes and nearly rally Tennessee to a victory.
