Jake Locker will start Tennessee's next preseason game.
Matt Hasselbeck got the start in the game against Seattle on Saturday and did not play particularly well -- he finished the night 5-for-9 for 45 yards and threw two interceptions. Locker was 7-13 for 80 yards and did not throw an interception.
While the Titans QB situation appears far from settled, Munchak did say that Locker "closed the gap" with Hasselbeck, which is likely what led to the decision to start Locker against the Bucs.
"I don't know if there was a big gap," Munchak said after the 27-17 loss to the Seahawks. "Obviously, Jake doesn't have the experience Matt has so I think that gap you can never really close if you are a young quarterback. ...
"So, yeah, he has closed the gap and they are obviously both doing well."
