Late in the second quarter of Sunday's 18-12 victory over the Miami Dolphins, Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was in the middle of a play call when he started shaking and rotating his injured shoulder. He called for Charlie Whitehurst on the sideline before expressing his frustration and walking off into the locker room. The Colts announced he would not return to the game.
Whitehurst also left the game in the fourth quarter with an undisclosed injury. He was replaced by Stephen Morris, who finished out the game.
Hasselbeck was drilled by Dolphins defensive lineman Jordan Phillips a few plays earlier. After the Phillips hit, Ndamukong Suh lightly hit the injured area forcing Hasselbeck to grimace. Hasselbeck returned to the sideline in the second half with his right arm in a sling.
As far as possibly playing next week, Hasselbeck told reporters after the game he "wasn't ruling anything out but I'm not super optimistic," the story went on to say.
