Locker to Sit Thursday; Steelers to Face Matt Hasselbeck at QB

When the Steelers come to Tennessee to play the Titans on Thursday night, Tennessee won’t have the services of their second-year QB – Jake Locker.

The second-year QB won’t go after he dislocated his left shoulder for the second time this season in a Week 4 loss against the Houston Texans.

He missed Sunday’s 30-7 loss to the Vikings in Minnesota.

The start at QB will once again go to Matt Hasselbeck, who wasn’t very effective against the Vikings on Sunday, going 26-of-43 for 200 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the loss.

Against the Texans in Week 4, Hasselbeck went 17-of-25 for 193 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
