NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Minnesota quarterback Gus Frerotte hurt his hand late in the fourth quarter when hit as he threw from his end zone and was replaced by Tarvaris Jackson.
Frerotte had thrown for 266 yards and pulled the Vikings within 23-17 after a 79-yard drive with 6 minutes left. But he threw two straight incompletions from his end zone after the Titans downed a punt at the Vikings 2. He was hit on third down, and cornerback Nick Harper picked off the pass.
That sent Frerotte to the locker room.
Jackson, who was replaced by Frerotte as the starting quarterback after Minnesota's 0-2 start, came into the game. He completed his first pass to Bobby Wade for 9 yards, but the Titans sacked him on the next two plays.
