Our friends over at Music City Miracles are reporting an interesting development concerning their Tennessee Titans for this Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

According to Adam Schefter, the Titans will likely be without quarterback Jake Locker this Sunday at the Metrodome. Locker injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder for the second time this season in Tennessee's 38-14 loss to the Houston Texans yesterday/ He did not return to the game as veteran Matt Hasselbeck played the rest of the way for the Titans.

Kind of disappointing to see that happen, as it would have been an opportunity for a couple of members of the quarterback class of 2011 to lock horns. Locker was taken by the Titans with the 8th overall pick in the 2011 draft, while Christian Ponder went to the Vikings at number 12.

The injury means that Hasselbeck will get the start this Sunday. It will be the first time that Hasselbeck will face the Vikings as a member of the Titans, but he has faced the Vikings a few times during his tenure as the quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks. As a starter, Hasselbeck has a 1-3 record against the Minnesota Vikings, with a victory over the Vikings in 2004 sandwiched between losses in 2003, 2005, and 2006. In those games, he's thrown four touchdown passes to five interceptions.

Do you think the Titans being forced to start Hasselbeck over Locker is a good thing or a bad thing?
