Colts quarterback Andrew Luck out two to six weeks with lacerated kidney

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck suffered a lacerated kidney and is out two to six weeks. “The injuries happened at the end of an early fourth quarter scramble when Andrew was doing everything he could to get us the win," Colts coach Chuck Pagano said.  "Andrew was sore after the game and was feeling a little worse Monday afternoon so we sent him to get tests.” Luck suffered a partial tear of an abdominal muscle. He's not expected to have surgery. Matt Hasselbeck will start with Luck sidelined. “It’s way too early to guess how long Andrew will be out,” Pagano said. “We’re going to keep listening to the doctors and evaluating his progress on a week by week basis. We’ve got all the confidence in the world in Matt Hasselbeck and we’re not going to put Andrew back out there until he’s healed and ready to go.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle
