Andrew Luck’s Playing Status in Jeopardy Amidst Concussion Protocol


With the Indianapolis Colts playoff hopes on the line each and every week, they can ill-afford to play without Andrew Luck for any period of time. Unfortunately, Chuck Pagano’s ballclub just may end up having the tall task of trying to win without Luck on Thanksgiving day.

During the fourth quarter against the Tennessee Titans this past Sunday, Luck suffered a head injury. Now, the All-Pro signal caller is going through concussion protocol, which puts his playing status in jeopardy.

Head coach Chuck Pagano spoke on the matter.

“That’s up to our docs and trainers to monitor that,” Pagano said.

The Colts are set to face the Pittsburgh Steelers this Thursday.
