Colts

Following the news that the Colts could be without QB Andrew Luck for as many as six weeks, Matt Hasselbeck‘s brother, Tim, mentioned that this could be asking a lot of a 40-year-old quarterback.

“They have a 40-year-old backup that maybe has to play for six weeks, get you all the way to Week 16 of the NFL season before you potentially get Andrew Luck back,” Hasselbeck said, via Pro Football Talk. “I know my brother played well in the two games he started this season, but I think anyone can attest . . . it’s one thing when it’s a shorter injury and you have a backup that’s going to play one week, two weeks, three weeks maybe. We’re in a situation where they have a 40-year-old quarterback that’s potentially going to play half of their football games this year. Half of them!
