After suffering a concussion in his team’s Sunday win over the Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will not play Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Colts final injury report released on Wednesday has Luck listed as out for Thursday night’s game. It was originally announced on Monday that Luck was in concussion protocol even though he finished the game against Titans.
With Luck out, Scott Tolzien is expected to start at quarterback for the Colts Thursday night. Tolzien last started a game in 2013 as a member of the Green Bay Packers. In the three games that Tolzien appeared in with the Packers in 2013, he threw one touchdown and five interceptions.
On a related note, the Colts signed quarterback Stephen Morris to their 53-man roster from the practice squad on Wednesday so he’ll back-up Tolzien Thursday night.
Also ruled out for the Colts on Wednesday was safety Clayton Geathers (concussion) and that’s a big blow to their secondary being as he’s a starter.
Listed as questionable by the Colts on Wednesday are cornerback Vontae Davis (ankle) and wide receiver Donte Moncrief (hamstring) after both practiced on a limited basis. Moncrief is a new addition to the Colts injury report.
Defensive tackle Arthur Jones (knee/ankle), linebacker Robert Mathis (rest), cornerback Rashaan Melvin (back), and cornerback Patrick Robinson (groin) were all removed from the injury report on Wednesday by the Colts.
