Colts QB Andrew Luck On Track To Return

Andrew Luck was forced to sit out Thursday night with a concussion, but it looks like he’ll be in uniform for the Colts on Monday. The quarterback was on the practice field today as Indianapolis prepares for Monday’s game against the Jets, as Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star tweets. It’s not immediately clear if Luck has completed the league’s concussion protocol yet, but he can’t be far off. Andrew Luck (vertical)

Without Luck, the Colts were forced to turn to Scott Tolzien under center. Predictably, the offense wasn’t quite the same and the Colts succumbed to the Steelers who were powered by Antonio Brown‘s three touchdown performance.

If Luck is given the green light for this week, the Colts will likely bump Tolzien back to No. 2 and cut Stephen Morris. Throughout the year, the Colts have been using two QBs on the 53-man roster, so Morris figures to be on the chopping block. If Morris clears waivers, he could be re-signed to the practice squad, where he has spent most of the season.

Now at 5-6, the Colts are still in the divisional conversation as they sit behind the Titans (6-6) and the Texans (6-5). So far this year, Luck has completed 62.9% of his passes for 2,827 yards with 19 scores against eight interceptions.

    • How is Luck trash? The defense is horrible and the rest of the offense isn’t exactly overflowing with talent.

  1. Kia Sportage Off-roader

    The Colts need a new GM desperately. Years of horrible drafting has caught up with them. It’s kind of crazy he was allowed back this year. Pagano has done great before, but has no talent to work with now.

  2. Kia Sportage Off-roader

    I bet Luck bought a Kia after signing his contract.
