INDIANAPOLIS -- Andrew Luck will not play in Sunday's season opener against the Los Angeles Rams.
General manager Chris Ballard made the official announcement Monday.
Luck has not taken a snap or thrown a pass to a teammate since having January surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder.
Indy's franchise quarterback missed all of the team's offseason workouts, all of training camp and the preseason before he was activated from the physically unable to perform list Saturday. And it's no guarantee he'll be on the field later Monday when the Colts typically hold a light workout.
Scott Tolzien is likely to make his fourth NFL start, even after the Colts traded for Jacoby Brissett on Saturday (see full story).
Steelers: Bell returns after holdout
PITTSBURGH -- Pro Bowl running back Le'Veon Bell is officially back at work with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Bell signed his franchise tender on Monday, clearing him to return for the 2017 season. The team placed the franchise tag on Bell in February. He declined to sign his one-year, $12.1 million tender while waiting to see if a long-term deal could be reached. When the Steelers and Bell did not come to an agreement by the mid-July deadline, Bell opted to skip training camp and work out on his own.
The Steelers were given a two-week roster exemption for Bell, meaning they can carry an additional player on the 53-man roster.
Bell worked out with the rest of the team Monday. His status for Pittsburgh's season opener in Cleveland is uncertain (see full story).
Dolphins: Hurrican Irma could move opener to Thursday, according to source
MIAMI -- A person familiar with the discussions says the NFL is considering moving the Miami Dolphins' season opener against Tampa Bay to another site or earlier this week because of Hurricane Irma.
The person confirmed the discussions to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the league and teams aren't talking publicly about the options.
Switching the game to Thursday or Friday is being considered, the person said, because Irma could threaten South Florida over the weekend. The game is scheduled for 1 p.m. EDT Sunday in Miami.
Playing the game at another site Sunday is also being discussed, the person said.
The teams share the same bye week in November, but would prefer to avoid moving the game to that weekend (see full story).
Bills: Taylor uncertain for opener after concussion
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor is still recovering from a concussion and it's uncertain if he can play in the season opener against the New York Jets on Sunday.
Coach Sean McDermott says Taylor has shown signs of improvement but remains in concussion protocol.
Taylor has been out since he was injured during the second series of a 13-9 preseason loss at Baltimore on Aug. 26. He missed practice last week but attended Buffalo's preseason finale against Detroit on Thursday.
Rookie Nathan Peterman could start against the Jets. The fifth-round draft pick has jumped ahead of veteran T.J. Yates for the No. 2 spot.
The Bills signed quarterback Joe Webb for insurance, with Yates also recovering from a concussion. Webb has been in the NFL seven seasons. He spent the past three with Carolina, where he was also used extensively on special teams.
To make roster space, Buffalo released veteran safety Colt Anderson (see full story).
Chargers: Backup QB Clemens re-signs
COSTA MESA, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Chargers have re-signed backup quarterback Kellen Clemens.
The Chargers put linebacker Denzel Perryman on the reserve/injured list to make room on the 53-man roster Monday.
Clemens has been Philip Rivers' backup for the past three seasons. He threw just 10 passes during that three-year stretch in relief of Rivers, who hasn't missed a game in 11 consecutive seasons.
Clemens was waived by the Chargers last weekend during roster cutdowns. Los Angeles kept quarterback Cardale Jones, acquired early in training camp in a trade with Buffalo.
The 34-year-old Clemens spent five years with the New York Jets and three with the St. Louis Rams before joining the Chargers in 2014.
