Locker, Hasselbeck? Titans still trying to pick QB

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jake Locker's struggles in his first NFL start have the Tennessee Titans pushing back their timetable for announcing their starting quarterback for this season.

Mike Munchak had pegged the third preseason game for making that decision, but both veteran Matt Hasselbeck and Locker have struggled in their starts so far. Munchak said Saturday that the Titans have two more weeks and will make the announcement of their pick when they feel the time is right.

Locker threw an interception on his second pass Friday night in a 30-7 win at Tampa Bay. A defender missed a chance to pick off a pass into the end zone, and he overthrew a tight end.

Munchak isn't ready to name a starter for Thursday night's game with Arizona yet, either.
