Hasselbeck to have MRI on elbow
Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will get an MRI on his injured throwing elbow today after leaving Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons after being hit.
In the initial diagnosis, the Titans did not believe Hasselbeck's injury was serious, but the quarterback said he would have to wait for the official evaluation, according to TitanInsider.com.
“I'm feeling OK. I'm not in a ton of pain, but I just hurt my elbow and wasn't able to throw,” Hasselbeck said, still holding the ice pack on the elbow during his postgame press conference. “It's unfortunate, and I feel bad about it. I think we are going to take some pictures tomorrow and see what we can find out.”
Hasselbeck's injury opened the door for rookie first-round pick Jake Locker to see his first meaningful action fo the season after two mop-up appearances. Locker responded by throwing the first two TDs of his pro career and nearly rallying the Titans from down 23-3.
