Luck not medically cleared for Sunday

Colts Coach Chuck Pagano told reporters Wednesday that quarterback Andrew Luck has not been medically cleared and won’t play in Sunday’s regular season finale vs. the Titans.

That’s not a surprise; Luck has been out since suffering a lacerated kidney and abdominal injuries Nov. 8. The Colts had held out hope he’d be able to return for the final two games of the season.

The Colts are mathematically alive for a playoff spot, but would need a win Sunday and a miracle in terms of help from other teams.

Matt Hasselbeck had been starting in Luck’s place but has been placed on injured reserve. So has Charlie Whitehurst, who replaced Hasselbeck when he left four games due to injury.

The Colts signed Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley earlier this week and Stephen Morris off the Eagles’ practice squad last week.

The Colts were 2-5 in games Luck started this season.
