ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news that Matt Hasselbeck will be starting for the Colts tonight against the Houston Texans. While Hasselbeck did lead the Colts to an overtime victory against the Jaguars last Sunday, that he was hospitalized until 2 a.m. with a virus on Tuesday has some Colts fans a bit queasy. Plus, Hasselbeck is 40 years old, which is like 120 in quarterback years.
Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck is starting tonight, per source. No Andrew Luck again.

Here, a look at this season’s Colts quarterback situation in 6 GIFs.
Pre-season: Just give them all the trophies now.
0-2 and 5 interceptions: Dumpster fire.
Andrew Luck’s 4th-quarter comeback against the Titans: He’s back.
Colts sign QB Josh Johnson: What? Why? Who?
Hasselbeck’s Week 4 overtime win: The old man still has it!
Luck out again, Hasselbeck starting Thursday. Hasselbeck feels your pain, Don. (HT Michael Rubino)
Luck returns to old form in a win against Peyton and the Broncos.
Luck has lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle. He is out 2-6 weeks.
Matt Hasselbeck’s status is uncertain after exiting the Pittsburgh loss with a neck injury. The Colts look to Charlie Whitehurst, AKA Clipboard Jesus.
(Rumor has it that Whitehurst isn’t too keen on his nickname. We like this much better.)
