06:46 AM ET 11.08 | The Tennessee Titans got some good news earlier today when quarterback Jake Locker was cleared for contact and eligible to practice. Locker took the field during the session and left feeling good. As a result, head coach Mike Munchak informed the media that the expectation is Locker will start Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Barring any "physical or mental" setback, Locker will get the call.

This will be interesting to see after their lackluster performance against the Bears last week if it was number 8 or will they play for number 10.

They will play for their jobs I think. Hasselbeck looked like the only football player on the field for Tennessee last week, and the owner wasn't happy about it.

I wonder what kind of "mental setback" Locker might experience? Maybe he'll remember he's a member of the Titans. That might be enough to put him in shock.

All players days are numbered; Hasselbeck's number is just smaller than most. Although, if the rest of the team doesn't play a little harder next week, Hasselbeck mah be the only survivor.
