Colts safety Mike Adams out for Falcons game

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Colts will be without Pro Bowl safety Mike Adams for Sunday's game at Atlanta as he recovers from an injured left ankle.

Coach Chuck Pagano disclosed the news Friday and didn't say who would replace Adams in the lineup.

The Colts are already without quarterback Andrew Luck, who is out 2-6 weeks while he recovers from a lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle sustained during a Nov. 8 victory over Denver.

Pagano says Luck will be on the Colts' sideline for Sunday's game and will help the offense throughout the game. Pagano said Indianapolis (4-5) will keep Luck out of harm's way.

Colts linebacker D'Qwell Jackson is listed as probable with a hamstring injury.
