INDIANAPOLIS -- Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will start against the Steelers on Sunday night after the Colts announced that Andrew Luck will miss another game.

Luck is still trying to recover from a lacerated kidney and partially torn abdominal muscle and hasn't played since Nov. 8. Hasselbeck is 4-0 this season and is trying to become the first 40-year-old quarterback in the Super Bowl era to win five consecutive games.

Indy (6-5) also ruled out three other starters Friday: left tackle Anthony Castonzo (right knee), receiver inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman (hamstring) and right guard Hugh Thornton (elbow).  Center Khaled Holmes is questionable with an injured fibula.

Pro Bowl safety Mike Adams (left ankle) and outside linebacker Erik Walden (heel) are probably against Pittsburgh (6-5).
