Colts QB Andrew Luck highly unlikely to play against Atlanta Falcons

New, comments

The Falcons may are continuing their streak of playing against backup quarterbacks.

The Indianapolis Colts announced that starting QB Andrew Luck has a lacerated spleen, and should be out for at least two weeks.

While the Atlanta Falcons are playing poorly, they sure have lucked out with their opponents. Atlanta has a bye week to figure out their problems before they play the Colts in Atlanta. Professional 40 year-old Matt Hasselback is expected to be the starting quarterback. As you would imagine, Hasselback will be limited to a game manager role.

If the Falcons want to slowly get back on track, playing against the Colts without Andrew Luck is a great start.
