Hasselbeck injured the thumb on his throwing hand during last week's 41-7 loss to the Houston Texans and was limited during Wednesday's practice, wearing a glove to protect the injured digit. Hasselbeck ditched the glove and Thursday and downplayed his injury.
"They kind of gave me the day off (Wednesday) just so I wouldn’t take a bunch of snaps and pound it, but I didn’t want them to give me the day off," Hasselbeck said via Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. "But when you are as old as I am, 36, they give you a day off when you sneeze too much."
After a hot start to his stint with the Titans, Hasselbeck has cooled off the last two weeks, completing just 54.4 percent of his last 79 pass attempts for 366 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions as the Titans have lost back-to-back games to even their record at 3-3 heading into Sunday's game against the Colts, who have the NFL's 23rd-ranked pass defense.
