INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Colts were victorious in their third preseason contest of the year, beating the 49ers at home 23-17.

Luck finished Saturday’s game with a much better stat line than Monday night.  He was 8-of-10 for 90 yards and a touchdown.

He also reminded the world he can get out of the pocket,  scrambling four times for 27 yards.

Former first-round pick Eric Ebron has continued to be a bright spot after coming over from Detroit in the offseason.  He had five receptions for 54 yards and a score.

Indianapolis received bad news in the second half, linebacker John Simon suffered a neck injury.  Details at this time are not known, but a neck injury caused him to go on the injured reserve list last season.

The Colts wrap up the preseason Thursday night in Cincinnati.

The Bengals then come to Indianapolis less than two weeks later to open the 2018 regular season.
