The Indianapolis Colts announced Tuesday that Andrew Luck sustained multiple injuries in the Colts' victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday.

Various reports say that Luck was experiencing soreness on Sunday and went in for tests on Monday.

Tests revealed a lacerated kidney and partial tear of abdominal muscle.

Luck had previously battled injuries through the first part of the season, eventually relinquishing starting quarterback duties to veteran Matt Hasselbeck. Hasselbeck went 2-0 in the games he started during Luck's absence, including a 16-13 overtime victory over the Jaguars in week 4.

It appears that Hasselbeck will assume the starting role once again, this time for anywhere between 2-6 weeks. The Colts currently sit at 1st place in the AFC South.

If Luck does need six weeks to recover, the Jaguars would most likely face Hasselbeck again on Dec. 13th.

Luck's injury is another slap in the face to a weakened AFC South division.
