Colts' injury woes continue as QB Charlie Whitehurst goes on IR

INDIANAPOLIS -- The revolving door at quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts will likely take another turn this week.

Matt Hasselbeck might not play against the Tennessee Titans because of a right shoulder injury suffered in the second quarter of Sunday's game against Miami, and things got even worse Monday, when the team placed quarterback Charlie Whitehurst on season-ending injured reserve. Whitehurst injured his hamstring late in Sunday's victory over the Miami Dolphins. He appeared in four games for the Colts this season and completed 16 of 32 passes for 150 yards and an interception.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he doesn't have an update on quarterback Andrew Luck, who has missed the past six games with a kidney/abdomen injury. It's a long shot that Luck plays against the Titans, even if he is medically cleared this week.

Pagano said he, Luck, general manager Ryan Grigson and owner Jim Irsay would have a conversation if it reached that point.

Against the Titans, the Colts could end up starting their fourth quarterback of the season, Stephen Morris, whom they signed off Philadelphia's practice squad last week.

"He's the only healthy one we have in the building right now," Pagano said.

The Colts will look to add another quarterback to the roster this week. They worked out former first-round draft pick Josh Freeman on Monday and haven't ruled out signing him. The rash of injuries at quarterback for the Colts comes after Luck did not miss a start in his first three seasons.
