Amani Toomer: Colts should play Andrew Luck as soon as possible
Monday December 21st, 2015

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will miss his sixth straight game as he recovers from a lacerated kidney, coach Chuck Pagano told reporters on Monday.

Backup Matt Hasselbeck’s status is also in question after he left Sunday’s loss to the Texans due to a big hit. Charlie Whitehurst would start in the event that Hasselbeck is ailing too much to play.

Luck returned to practice last week for the first time since Nov. 6.

In seven games this season, Luck has completed 55.3% of his passes, throwing for 1,881 yards, 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
