Colts’ Andrew Luck cleared to play vs. Jets; Robert Mathis out
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – As expected, Andrew Luck will be back under center Monday night when the Indianapolis Colts face the New York Jets.
Luck and safety Clayton Geathers, each of whom suffered a concussion Nov. 20 against Tennessee, were cleared by an independent neurologist Friday. However, Geathers has been ruled out of the Jets game with a next injury.
Also ruled out are linebacker Robert Mathis (bicep) and cornerback Patrick Robinson (groin). Guard Denzelle Good (shoulder), wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (back) and defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway (back) are questionable.
Luck’s availability was expected. He fully participated in Wednesday’s practice and was limited Thursday, which has been his routine this season.
“No restrictions, felt great,’’ Luck said early in the week.
