INDIANAPOLIS -- Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin guessed wrong.He expected Andrew Luck to overcome a head injury and suit up for Thursday nights primetime game.Instead, the Indianapolis Colts ruled out their star quarterback Wednesday after he missed practice for the third straight day.The likely replacement will be the rarely used Scott Tolzien, whom Tomlin doesnt have much tape on because Tolzien hasnt played since the preseason.But Tomlin didnt win two Super Bowls without successfully devising contingency plans -- and hell have to rely on that experience to win at Indy.I just think its prudent for us to prepare for Andrew and then react to whatever may transpire thats different than that, as opposed to the other way around, Tomlin told Indianapolis reporters during a conference call before Wednesdays injury report was released.Indy (5-5), of course, did a good job keeping Lucks status shrouded because thats how NFL teams operate.And Pagano didnt drop any hints about his backup plan, either, when he told reporters Tuesday simply that the Colts had options.The most likely scenario, of course, is that Pagano sticks with Tolzien.Otherwise, Pagano could go with Stephen Morris, a practice squad player who was promoted to the active roster Wednesday, some combination of both or use running back Frank Gore in the wildcat formation as the Colts have done sporadically the past two games.None of those options, of course, would be as promising as having Luck.Theres no choice now, and Pagano cant afford to fret with a critical game looming between two playoff contenders.Its just football. Its life in the National Football League, he said. Theyre not cancelling the game and so well put our best foot forward.Complicating matters is that Pittsburgh (5-5) has posed major problems for the Colts.Theyve won the past three in the series, the past two by a combined score of 96-44.Losing Luck, who entered the concussion protocol Sunday night after complaining of concussion-like symptoms following a victory over Tennessee, wont help.But with only four days between Sunday nights diagnosis and this weeks game there wasnt enough time to get him cleared by doctors and the Colts finally made the decision to hold him out.You can rub dirt on a lot of things, but you cant rub dirt on the brain so you have to be smart with that, said Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.Here are some other things to watch Thursday:BLING BLINGFour days after honoring the Colts 2006 Super Bowl team, they will have another halftime celebration when former coach Tony Dungy and former receiver Marvin Harrison receive their Hall of Fame rings. Both were inducted in August, were part of the title team and could not attend Sundays ceremony.BROWN & HILTONAntonio Brown and T.Y. Hilton grew up together as youth league teammates and are still friendly even when theyre on opposing sidelines.This week, theyll be chasing the same goals. Brown needs 93 yards to join Hines Ward as the second Steelers receiver in history to record four straight 1,000-yard seasons.Hilton needs 112 yards for his fourth straight 1,000-yard season, something only two other Colts receivers (Harrison and Reggie Wayne) have done.LEARNING ON THE JOB: The Steelers have three rookies starting on defense: safety Sean Davis, cornerback Artie Burns and nose tackle Javon Hargrave.Theyre growing up quickly. Burns has two interceptions in Pittsburghs past three games, Davis has rapidly gone from lost backup to first string and Hargrave recovered a fumble for a TD in Cleveland.The Steelers will need their fresh legs over the final six games to make the playoffs for a third straight season, something theyve never done under Mike Tomlin.I just hope they keep coming along the way they have, defensive coordinator Keith Butler said.SOMETHING HAS TO GIVEWhile Pittsburgh has lost four straight Thanksgiving Day games since 1983, the Colts have won the only two such games theyve been involved in since the move to Indy.The Colts also have won 10 straight Thursday night games since 2007. But they havent beaten Pittsburgh since 2008.LEAN ON LEVEON: Oh the benefits of being 24. Steelers running back LeVeon Bell is feeling good just a few days removed from a heavy workload against the Browns.Bell touched the ball 32 times while piling up 201 total yards and Pittsburghs only offensive TD in Cleveland. The more carries Bell gets, the better things seem to go for the Steelers.Pittsburgh is 8-2 when he runs for 100 yards.He is a young guy that wants it all the time, offensive coordinator Todd Haley said. I havent seen him ever dragging around after a big game, which is what he had.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL D.J. Augustin Thunder Jersey .

Ersan Ilyasova Thunder Jersey .com) - The red-hot Los Angeles Kings will try to extend their winning streak to a season-high seven games when they visit the Edmonton Oilers for Sundays clash at Rexall Place.Corinthians expect Alexandre Pato to remain at Chelsea next season, according to Sky sources. The former AC Milan striker has made just two appearances for the Blues since arriving on loan in January, but sources at the Brazilian club have told Sky Sports News HQ that incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is a keen admirer of the 26-year-old. Pato scored from the penalty spot on his debut - a 4-0 win at Aston Villa - before facing Swansea the following week. Corinthians president Roberto de Andrade said last week his club would welcome Pato back, if Chelsea forego the option to buy him in the summer.dddddddddddd.He still has a contract with us which has to be honoured. So nothing has changed in the situation regarding Pato, he said.So, If Chelsea dont want him anymore and dont pay for his transfer, then he will move back to Corinthians. And once back with us he will be used for us in our team. Also See: Chelsea video Chelsea fixtures Chelsea stats Get a £10 free bet!
