INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Andrew Luck remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol, but that’s nearing an end.

The Indianapolis Colts veteran quarterback went through a full practice Wednesday, and his availability for Monday night’s game against the New York Jets is a virtual certainty.

“Full practice, no restrictions, felt great,’’ Luck said.

The next and final step should come Thursday.

“I believe I have to see an independent (neurologist) and that’s it,’’ Luck said. “Not sure when that’ll be, but that’s it.’’

Luck suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of the Colts’ Nov. 20 win over the Tennessee Titans. It forced him to miss the Nov. 24 loss to Pittsburgh.

Along with Luck, safety Clayton Geathers apparently is on the verge of being cleared to play against the Jets. He also suffered a concussion against the Titans, but was not wearing a red non-contact jersey in Wednesday’s practice.

Among players who did not practice Wednesday were linebacker Robert Mathis (bicep) and cornerbacks Vontae Davis (groin) and Patrick Robinson (groin).

Wideout T.Y. Hilton (lower back) practiced.
