Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Lick is in concussion protocol. Head coach Chuck Pagano announced the news on Monday when he met with the media.

It’s going to be tough for Luck to play this week as the Colts play on Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He suffered the injury against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Clayton Geathers also suffered a concussion in the game against the Bills, as well. The Colts won 24-17.

“Well after we were all done with the locker room, both guys didn’t feel right and went in the training room, and both were evaluated for concussions,” head coach Chuck Pagano said. “Both are in the protocol.”

In the game, Luck was sacked twice and hit eight more times. The Colts believe he suffered the concussion when he was hit by Titans defensive tackle Austin Johnson landed on him for a sack at 11:46 in the fourth quarter.

If Luck can’t play, Scott Tolzein will play against the Steelers. He has only one attempted pass since the 2013 season.

In his career, including a stint with the Green Bay Packers, he is 56-of-91 for 721 yards and a touchdown in six games. He has also thrown five interceptions.

“He has a limited amount of exposure, but he is a pro,” Pagano said. “Again, if he has to roll and be the guy, then he will do a great job. He prepares really well every single day.”
