The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder reports Matt Hasselbeck will wait a few weeks to make his retirement decision.
Hasselbeck was competent in the first couple starts of his age-40 season, but he suffered multiple injuries behind a pitiful offensive line and eventually was forced out for good Week 17. Hasselbeck showed extreme toughness to play through his injuries, but his body may not hold up to another multiple-start campaign. Even if Hasselbeck returns, the Colts need to explore other backup options for Andrew Luck. Jan 12 - 12:10 PM

Colts.com’s Kevin Bowen expects impending free agent Matt Hasselbeck to return next season.

Hasselbeck played through multiple injuries this year, but showed he can still be an effective backup. He should return with the Colts despite entering his age-41 season. Hasselbeck is likely to sign for the veteran minimum.

Jan 9 - 4:11 PM

Colts declared QB Matt Hasselbeck, LB Sio Moore, QB Andrew Luck, LB Trent Cole, QB Stephen Morris, DB Winston Guy, and DE Kelcy Quarles inactive for Week 17.

Donte Moncrief (toe) is active. Josh Freeman will start in Hasselbeck's place.
Jan 3 - 11:46 AM

Matt Hasselbeck (everything) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Asked Friday who would start for the Colts at quarterback against the Titans, coach Chuck Pagano replied, "No decision has been made yet."
Jan 1 - 1:39 PM

Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder, ribs) remained sidelined Thursday.

Hasselbeck has projected optimism, but it looks like the Colts might finally save their veteran quarterback from himself. One of the absurd trio of Stephen Morris, Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley will likely start against the Titans.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano described Matt Hasselbeck (shoulder) as doubtful for Week 17.

He isn't going to play against the Titans after suffering a Grade 1 sprain in his throwing shoulder during Sunday's win over Miami. "Beat up from the feet up," Hasselbeck really shouldn't have been playing for several weeks.

Matt Hasselbeck believes he is dealing with an AC sprain in his right (throwing) shoulder.

"We'll do an MRI Monday, but I think it's just an AC sprain," said Hasselbeck. "I’m not ruling anything out, but I’m not super optimistic about a seven-day return right now." Hasselbeck has been an ironman battling through several injuries, but this one will likely knock him out the rest of the season. With Andrew Luck extremely questionable, Charlie Whitehurst will likely start the season finale.

The Colts replaced Matt Hasselbeck with Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback in the second quarter of Sunday's game at Miami.

The injury was later announced to Hasselbeck's shoulder. Hasselbeck entered this one incredibly banged up. Before exiting, the 40-year-old was 8-of-15 passing for 99 yards and one sack taken. Hasselbeck has been declared out and later reappeared on the sideline with his right (throwing) arm in a sling.

Matt Hasselbeck (jaw, back, neck, ribs) is probable for Week 16 against the Dolphins.

He practiced in full on Friday. It's hard to believe Hasselbeck is really the Colts' best option right now with his endless list of injuries but he'll be under center Sunday in Indy's biggest game of the season. He's completed just 51-of-91 passes for two touchdowns and three interceptions during the Colts' three-game losing streak.

Matt Hasselbeck (jaw, back, neck, ribs) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

Whether the Colts should play Hasselbeck, who has to drink his food this week because of a jaw injury, is up for debate, but it looks like he will be in the starting lineup. Whether or not he finishes the game is another matter entirely.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 11:42:00 AM

Matt Hasselbeck (jaw) has been limited to "what amounts to a liquid diet" this week.

Hasselbeck took another beating last week against the Texans and can now add jaw to a list of ailments which also includes his back, neck and ribs. Despite being "beat up from the feet up," as coach Chuck Pagano put it, Hasselbeck refuses to yield. He plans to start Week 16 against the Dolphins, although it seems unlikely he finishes the game.
Thu, Dec 24, 2015 09:32:00 AM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano expects Matt Hasselbeck (various minor injuries) to start Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Hasselbeck was a full participant in Tuesday's walk-through. Extraordinarily banged up, we wouldn't bet on Hasselbeck finishing the game. He's off the DFS radar.
Tue, Dec 22, 2015 04:53:00 PM

At his Monday press conference, Colts coach Chuck Pagano described Matt Hasselbeck as "beat up from the feet up."

Hasselbeck is nursing so many different injuries to so many different body parts that we've lost track of them all. His status for Week 16 against the Dolphins probably won't be determined until later in the week.
Mon, Dec 21, 2015 04:15:00 PM

Matt Hasselbeck completed 17-of-30 passes for 147 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Texans.

Hasselbeck briefly left in the fourth quarter with a back injury, but returned after only one series. He struggled to move the offense at less than 100 percent, with the Colts managing just 190 total yards. His only touchdown was a red-zone slant to Donte Moncrief. Hasselbeck was likely making his last start. The Colts are hoping to have Andrew Luck back for Week 16 against the Dolphins.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 04:15:00 PM

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports the Colts are unsure whether Matt Hasselbeck (ribs, neck, arm) will be able to play Sunday's Week 15 game start to finish.

"He is very banged up," were Glazer's words. "They don't know if he's gonna be able to finish." Hasselbeck has failed to finish each of the Colts' last two games, so this is not surprising. If Hasselbeck leaves Sunday's game against the Texans, Charlie Whitehurst will take over at quarterback.
