The startling news that Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck will skip a subsequent 2-6 weeks with a ripped kidney and partially ripped abdominal muscle means that a Colts will once again demeanour to 40-year-old backup Matt Hasselbeck to beam a group until Luck is prepared to return.
Hasselbeck has already filled in for Luck for dual games this season, heading a Colts to wins over a Jaguars and Texans.
“We’ve got all a certainty in a world, obviously, and we’re really advantageous to have Matt Hasselbeck as a backup quarterback,” Indidanapolis conduct manager Chuck Pagano said, per a team’s central website.
“Certainly from a certainty standpoint from players, coaches and everybody in this classification to know that we got a man that’s got a volume of snaps and plays underneath his belt and a knowledge of Matt, and a fact that he’s left out and won dual football games for we already this year is apparently really certain relocating forward.”
With a Colts sitting atop a AFC South during 4-5 and entrance off a win over a undefeated Denver Broncos, Pagano pronounced Hasselbeck is entirely able of heading a group for as prolonged as necessary.
“We will win football games with Matt,” Pagano said.
“We will overcome this, and Andrew will make a full-recovery. We all know that, and he’ll be behind in a lineup during some point. We will overcome.”
