Indianapolis expects QB Andrew Luck to make trip to Atlanta

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts expect injured quarterback Andrew Luck to make the trip to Atlanta this weekend but are uncertain if he'll be on the sideline for Sunday's game.

Luck is recovering from a lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle, sustained Nov. 8 against Denver. The Colts (4-5) announced last week that Luck was expected to miss 2-6 weeks. He did not practice Wednesday.

Luck's replacement, 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck, said Monday he hoped Luck could help with input during the game - as Luck did earlier this season when he missed games against Jacksonville and Houston. Hasselbeck won both games.
