Colts Thursday Injury Report: Andrew Luck, Vontae Davis Limited in Practice

The Indianapolis Colts released their most recent injury report, and both starting quarterback Andrew Luck (concussion/shoulder) and Vontae Davis (groin) were limited on Thursday.

Luck’s limited availability seems like it had less to do with his concussion–as he was a full participant during Wednesday’s practice and more with the fact that it was simply a routine maintenance day for the quarterback–simply resting his throwing shoulder to a degree.

While Luck hasn’t quite cleared the league’s concussion protocol, the Colts released their 3rd-string quarterback Stephen Morris on Thursday, and it seems as though Luck’s clearance is imminent.

Along with starting safety Clayton Geathers–who is also in the league’s concussion protocol, both players must be cleared by an independent neurologist. The positive news is that Geathers was a full participant in Thursday’s practice and appears that like Luck, he’ll be good to go Monday night against the New York Jets.

Having Davis practice at all is encouraging news, as the Colts other starting cornerback Patrick Robinson (groin) has still been unable to practice all week.

Joining Robinson in the “DNP” column Thursday were wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (back), outside linebacker Robert Mathis (bicep), and defensive lineman Hassan Ridgeway (back).

Obviously, Hilton’s name is the biggest of the group, although the wide receiver reportedly practiced on Wednesday and is still expected to play on Monday night.

The Colts may have prepared for Mathis’ potential absence by promoting veteran pass rusher Trent Cole off their injured reserve on Thursday–who should be able to step in right away and contribute in their outside linebacker rotation.

To end on good news, two starting offensive lineman Ryan Kelly (shoulder) and Denzelle Good (shoulder) were full participants in Thursday’s practice–having been forced from last week’s game due to injuries. Both players should be safely penciled into the Colts starting offensive line come Monday night.
