Earlier on Wednesday, the Indianapolis Colts made the decision to promote quarterback Stephen Morris to the active roster, leaving a telling sign towards Andrew Luck's playing status on Thursday night vs the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Colts revealed earlier this week that the 27-year-old picked up a concussion during last Sunday's 24-17 win over the Tennessee Titans. He would then be placed on concussion protocol on Monday, leaving his playing status for Thursday night up in the air.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport has reported what the current situation is with the three-time Pro Bowler. He will not be playing.

Rapoport said on his Twitter: "The #Colts have officially ruled QB Andrew Luck (concussion) out for tomorrow night’s game vs. #Steelers."

This explains why news emerged that Indianapolis had promoted Morris to their active roster.

The team are expected to run with Scott Tolzien against the Steelers, a 29-year-old who has played as almost all of his career with just two NFL starts to his name with a record of 1-1, completing 60.8 percent of his passes for 218.5 yards, zero touchdowns, three interceptions, and a 63.9 quarterback rating. Victory may be very hard to come by on Thursday night.

However, Tolzien's poor performances won't be on the forefront of every Colts fan's mind. The severity of Luck's condition has yet to be determined, but Indianapolis needs him back as soon as possible. The whole team revolves around him and they're not even a contender in the AFC without him. 

If he is out for too long, it could put the Colts' playoff hopes in jeopardy and open the door for the Titans to sneak into the postseason in the AFC South.
