Tamme, Sims starting for Colts
By Paul Kuharsky
INDIANAPOLIS -- Matt Hasselbeck will start at quarterback for the Titans as we expected, as he’s worked through the calf strain that knocked him out of last week’s loss to New Orleans.
But with Hasselbeck and Jake Locker (chest) dinged up, third quarterback Rusty Smith is active for the first time all season.
The Colts have two lineup changes.
Jacob Tamme starts at tight end in place of Dallas Clark.
Ernie Sims starts at strongside linebacker in place of Philip Wheeler.
Earlier, this post said Mike Pollak would start at left guard in place of Joe Reitz. But the Colts announced about 20 minutes before kickoff that was an error and that Reitz will start.
