Coach Mike Munchak confirmed Monday that the Titans will start Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback in Week 9 against the Bears.

Jake Locker (shoulder) has been practicing for two weeks, but Titans coaches seem to believe Hasselbeck gives them their best chance to win. Tennessee has tough upcoming matchups against the defenses of Chicago and Miami, before a Week 11 bye. It's conceivable that they'll stick with Hasselbeck for those two games, then reevaluate whether to reinsert Locker during the open date.
