The Indianapolis Colts limped over the line against the Jacksonville Jaguars at the weekend, needing a last second field goal from Adam Vinatieri to get the win. 

The Colts had to do without Andrew Luck for the week four encounter, with the struggling star quarterback failing to recover in time to take to the field.

In his place, 40-year old backup Matt Hasselbeck started for the Colts and the old-timer did well, keeping the offense ticking over and taking care of the football. But, the Colts could be set for a huge boost regarding Luck.

Luck Back?

According to a report from NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, Indy plan on having Luck under center when they take on the Houston Texans in Thursday Night Football later this week.

"They did some tests on Andrew Luck's shoulder earlier in the week," Rapoport added in a TV report. "They found no structural damage to explain why he was experiencing some soreness, just some bruising in his throwing shoulder."

Luck didn't throw last week, but had a private session on Saturday and was deemed unable to go in Sunday's contest, his first career missed game.

Head coach Chuck Pagano called his young quarterback 'day-to-day' after Sunday's victory. It's a quick turnaround for Indy to play on Thursday in Houston, but the Colts believe they will have their stud QB back in time.
