Titans' Hasselbeck says he's starting vs Tampa Bay
Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck says 'he will start Sunday.

His sore right elbow knocked him out of one game, but Hasselbeck told Tampa Bay reporters Wednesday in a conference call that he will start against the Buccaneers (4-6).

The 13-year veteran left last week's 23-17 loss to Atlanta midway through the third quarter when he hit his throwing arm on a defender's helmet during a pass attempt. He had tests Monday that showed no structural damage, though the Titans (5-5) planned to limit him in practice Wednesday.

Bucs' Haynesworth has no ill will toward Titans
Tampa Bay's Albert Haynesworth says he is returning to Tennessee with no ill will toward the Titans.

He has played with three teams since leaving the franchise that drafted him and says he's learned the hard way a big payday may not be worth the hassle.

The defensive tackle said Wednesday players need to be careful going into free agency thinking the grass is greener with another team. Haynesworth suggests trying to work something out with the team they start with before leaving.

Haynesworth returns to Tennessee with the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Titans fullback Ahmard Hall says Haynesworth put together two great seasons while motivated to become the highest paid defensive player. Hall says motivation, not talent, has been the tackle's problem the past three years.
