On Wednesday, the Indianapolis Star reported there was a "remote possibility" the game could be moved to Monday in Indianapolis due to unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.
On Monday, St. Louis prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced that a grand jury declined to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was unarmed, in August.
Since the announcement, demonstrators have gathered in the streets of Ferguson, where protests eventually turned violent. Cars and businesses were set on fire and police in riot gear used tear gas to disperse the crowds.
Concession workers at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis had told the Star they were on call for Monday night and public safety officials said they were prepared if the game was moved. Indianapolis was chosen as a backup option because of its proximity to St. Louis.
