The Indianapolis Colts haven't had the greatest of starts to the 2015 NFL season.

Colts Struggling

The Colts have struggled all over the field so far in the campaign, losing their first two games of the season to the Bills and Jets, before barely scraping past perennial basement-dwellers the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Andrew Luck has struggled immensely throughout the season and has suffered an injury, to add to his worries, which saw him miss the win over the Jags. Indy had hoped to have him back this week, but it doesn't look like that will be happening following the Colts latest actions.

Johnson's Back

Just days after letting him go when they assumed that Andrew Luck would be back for Thursday Night Football against the Houston Texans, the Colts re-signed quarterback Josh Johnson.

Luck was a limited participant in practice on Monday and Tuesday and told reporters on Tuesday that he’s preparing to start this week. He also added that he wasn’t where he’d want to be in an ideal world, however.

And with Luck's fitness in limbo ahead of Thursday, the Colts QB situation took another knock when Matt Hasselbeck missed Tuesday’s practice with an illness.

Johnson backed up Hasselbeck in the Week Four victory over the Jaguars and last saw regular season action with the Bengals during the 2013 season.
