Luck seems to have taken the hit that could see him miss week 12 in the fourth quarter of Indianapolis' win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

The Colts claimed a big 24-17 divisional win over the Titans following a very fast start to the game which saw them go 21-0 up.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano discussed Luck's chances of playing ahead of Thursday's game but claimed:

"That's up to our docs and trainers to monitor that." - Pagano on Luck

Multiple news sources were claiming on Monday that the Colts are now going to prepare to face the Steelers without the former number one pick.

Back-up quarterback Scott Tolzien is now preparing to start against Pittsburgh as Indianapolis attempt to establish a winning record.

The Steelers however - who will travel to Lucas Oil Stadium on Thanksgiving, snapped a four game losing streak on Sunday with their win over the Cleveland Browns.
