Colts QB Situation Further in Flux After Hasselbeck's Injury

Hasselbeck has played quite well for a 40-year-old veteran who had been sitting behind Andrew Luck for the past two seasons. He kept the Colts in the hunt for the AFC South division title, but has taken his fair share of punishment along the way.

Despite a mild rib separation and a stiff neck, Hasselbeck suited up for Week 14's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, only to leave that contest with a rib injury.

Charlie Whitehurst took over for Hasselbeck, subsequently injuring his hamstring and was placed on injured reserve. The Colts went on to sign Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley, and one will start in a must-win game against the Titans.
