Matt Hasselbeck leaves Jaguars game with injury, Charlie Whitehurst in

Whitehurst replaced Hasselbeck in the fourth quarter Sunday.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck left the team's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with an injury Sunday. Hasselbeck was sacked three times in the game and stayed down after a big run when he was shoved out of bounds. He landed on his arm and was clearly frustrated and in pain on the sideline.

Hasselbeck gave way to backup Charlie Whitehurst for the second time on Sunday. He also left earlier in the game after a big hit that left him on the field to be examined by the medical staff. He returned shortly after and played into the fourth quarter, which is when the latest injury occurred.

Hasselbeck completed 18 of 35 passes for 252 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions when he left the game with the injury. He started Sunday in place of Andrew Luck, who is out with an injury. It's unclear when Luck will return and it's not guaranteed he will be back for Week 15, so if Hasselbeck's injury is serious, this could be huge for the Colts.

Indianapolis is 6-6 on the season and tied for first place in the AFC South. But at the time of Hasselbeck's injury, time was running out and they were well behind the Jaguars on the scoreboard.
