Though Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay raised hopes that Andrew Luck could return from his lacerated kidney injury Sunday, when or if Luck will play again this season is in question, sources told ESPN.

Irsay had told NFL.com that he thought Luck should be able to play Sunday against the Houston Texans, but others in the Colts organization have not gotten any indication that that is close to happening at this time. As recently as last week, they did not expect Luck to be able to play against the Texans.

Luck told reporters Monday that his goal is to practice this week but that he doesn't feel 100 percent yet. He said he will play again this season.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he had "not heard anything from our trainers or doctors" on Luck practicing this week.

Fantasy Impact:

There seems to be a lot of varying reports within the organization. The Colts are handling Luck as carefully and cautiously as possible, the story said, and with good reason. Doctors know that Luck cannot risk elevating his heart rate because it would pump more blood through his kidneys, delaying the healing process, according to medical sources.

The Jacksonville Jaguars won't know the status of rookie running back T.J. Yeldon until later this week.

Yeldon sprained his left knee Sunday against Indianapolis, left the stadium on crutches and was scheduled to undergo tests Monday.

The Jaguars (5-8) host Atlanta (6-7) on Sunday.

Coach Gus Bradley says Yeldon ''got his knee got bent a little bit'' against the Colts and was unable to return to the game. Bradley says general manager Dave Caldwell is considering bringing in another running back since Jacksonville already has Toby Gerhart, Bernard Pierce and Corey Grant on injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact:

To make matters worse, the story said Yeldon is also dealing with a sprained right ankle and a groin injury. Denard Robinson would start if Yeldon can't play against the Falcons.

Colts think Matt Hasselbeck will be 'available' Week 15

The Indianapolis Colts do not expect quarterback Matt Hasselbeck to practice Wednesday, but they are optimistic he’ll be “available” for Sunday’s pivotal AFC South game against the Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Stadium.

“Yeah, I’m hopeful,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “He’s banged up, like a lot of the guys. He’s a warrior. He came back in that game after taking a few good licks. Matt is a tough guy and great competitor. I fully anticipate him being available for us.”

Pagano saying he thinks Hasselbeck will be “available.”

Fantasy Impact:

As the story says, it leaves the door slightly open that Andrew Luck could return Sunday. Luck has missed the past four games with a kidney and abdominal injury, but he could return to practice this week.

By rule, someone has to win the AFC South.

And it seems oddly appropriate that there’s a chance that division will be decided in a duel between T.J. Yates and Charlie Whitehurst.

Those two stalwarts finished yesterday’s respective losses for the 6-7 Texans and Colts, after Brian Hoyer and Matt Hasselbeck were knocked from the games after taking so many brutal hits. Hoyer was getting checked for a concussion when he left late, and Hasselbeck was announced as having another rib injury.

“We’ll see what happens with Brian,” Yates said, via Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle. “I’ll just prepare like I do every week. I haven’t had a chance to see him yet, so I don’t know what’s going on. But it looked like he really hit the ground hard. . . .

“I guess we’ll see, come Wednesday, if I get more reps than usual.”

Fantasy Impact:

Hoyer’s already missed one game this year because of a concussion. Asked if Hoyer had suffered another one, Texans coach Bill O’Brien said: “I don’t know that yet. I’m not sure. It looked that way.”
