Andrew Luck Out Again in Week Two

INDIANAPOLIS – Two games into 2017 and two games without their franchise quarterback.

 

For a second straight week, the Colts will turn to a backup quarterback as Andrew Luck continues to rehab a shoulder injury that has kept him off the practice field for all of 2017.

 

Who exactly the Colts will go with at quarterback this Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium remains to be seen.

 

On Monday, Chuck Pagano would not commit to either Scott Tolzien or Jacoby Brissett as this week's starter, but did rule Luck out for Sunday afternoon’s matchup with the Arizona Cardinals.

 

Pagano did caution that Brissett's lack of knowledge with the playbook is a major question. Brissett has been with the Colts for about a week and half.

 

Even if Brissett is limited from a knowledge base standpoint, the Colts must spend the next two days exploring the possibility of starting the 23-year-old quarterback.

 

Tolzien was woeful in Week One's 46-9 loss to the Rams. In his fourth career NFL start, Tolzien was 9-of-18 for 128 yards, two interceptions and finished with a 33.8 quarterback rating. He was benched after three quarters.

 

Brissett then entered the game and finished 2-of-3 for 51 yards, leading the Colts to their lone touchdown drive.

 

The Colts will get back on the practice field Wednesday.

 

Along with Luck ruled out, expect C-Ryan Kelly and CB-Vontae Davis to miss another week.
