Shorts’ long gain shocks Colts

Indianapolis falls to Jacksonville in final minute


INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis also took a big emotional hit when receiver Austin Collie

left the game with a knee injury after a six-yard catch early in the third


“It’s awful,” Luck said. “I know for the first couple of seconds I thought

it was his head again. I was very scared for him. I’m not glad that it’s

his knee but thankful that it’s not his head.”

Injuries continued to haunt the Colts. Cornerbacks Vontae Davis and Justin

King were not on the field for Shorts’ touchdown catch after leaving

earlier in the fourth quarter. Shorts took advantage by splitting the

Colts’ deep safeties and racing away to victory.

Gabbert completed just 10 of 21 pass attempts and had just 75 passing

yards before the big play. But he came up big when Jacksonville needed him


“He threw a great ball,” Shorts said. “He found the window, made the right

read and threw a hell of a ball. He put the ball exactly where it needed

to be.”

Indianapolis will be idle this week before returning to Lucas Oil Stadium

on Oct. 7 against Green Bay. Luck said he’d rather have another game next

Sunday, but it’s important for the team to use the downtime wisely.

“You do want to get out there and just focus on the next one, not let this

linger,” Luck said. “And, hopefully, we don’t let this linger. Hopefully,

we’ll watch the tape, fix our mistakes, get our corrections in, have a

couple good practices and come back fresh and completely focused on the

next opponent.”
