The Colts made a roster move on Thursday that came with a strong suggestion that Andrew Luck will be at quarterback on Monday night against the Jets.
The team waived quarterback Stephen Morris to make room for the return of linebacker Trent Cole, something that they’d be unlikely to do without confidence in Luck’s status because Scott Tolzien is the only other quarterback on the roster. Luck hasn’t received the final clearance to play, however.
That could come later on Friday. Coach Chuck Pagano said, via Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, that Luck will see an independent neurologist in order to make his way out of the concussion protocol once and for all.
Safety Clayton Geathers will also be seeing the neurologist in hopes of being cleared to return from his concussion, although he’s also dealing with a neck injury that could complicate his return to action against the Jets.
