    Vikings defensive end Jared Allen makes a living getting to the quarterback.

    Going against veteran Matt Hasselbeck makes his job tougher, he said.

    “Hasselbeck is a huge threat. I’ve played against him back when he was in Seattle and … I don’t think there is a quarterback who gets rid of the ball as fast as him,’’ Allen said. “Maybe Peyton (Manning)? Maybe he’s second to Peyton.”

    The Titans plan to start Hasselbeck on Sunday against the Vikings in place of an injured Jake Locker.

    Locker is expected to miss multiple games after his left shoulder popped out of place for the second time on Sunday in Houston.

    Titans Coach Mike Munchak hasn’t officially ruled Locker out.

    Allen, who has two sacks this season, said the Vikings will be watching the Injury Report during the week. During a conference call with reports from Nashville on Wednesday, it sounded like he expected to see Hasselbeck, however.

    “Obviously Jake can run; Matt is going to get the ball out of his hands and he knows his reads,’’ Allen said. “You are really going to have to do stuff coverage-wise to try and cloud his reads to give the rush time to get there.”
