Colts' Scott Tolzien: Serviceable in Thanksgiving Night loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Tolzien, drawing the start for the injured Andrew Luck (concussion), completed 22 of 36 passes for 205 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in Thursday's 28-7 loss to the Steelers. He also totaled six yards on three rushes and had a fumble that was recovered.

Tolzien turned in a solid effort in what was his first start in exactly three years, but a combination of factors helped derail any chances of a victory. The 29-year-old was victimized by drops on several occasions and also saw T.Y. Hilton eventually leave the game with a back injury stemming from a hard hit on a catch deep down the middle in the second quarter. Tolzien came up short of the goal line on third-down scrambles on two separate occasions, then couldn't connect with his receivers on the subsequent fourth-down play in either instance. Luck could well be back for the Colts' Week 13 road matchup versus the Jets, but if he's unable to be cleared in time, Tolzien showed enough Thursday to be considered a fairly sneaky, albeit somewhat desperate, fantasy option against New York's vulnerable secondary; at least he'll have 11 days of prep time before that contest.

Colts' Scott Tolzien: Expected to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolzien is expected to start Thursday against Pittsburgh with Andrew Luck listed as out due to a concussion, ESPN reports.

Stephen Morris is expected to be the backup quarterback to Tolzien. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano left open that Morris could play Wednesday, but Tolzien is widely expected to start. Tolzien has made two NFL starts, his last on Nov. 24, 2013 against the Vikings when he played for the Packers. While the Colts may have a more conservative game plan with Tolzien under center, he could put up decent fantasy stats since he's facing the league's 26th-ranked pass defense.

Colts' Scott Tolzien: Could start Thursday against Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolzien could start Thursday against Pittsburgh with Andrew Luck placed in the league's concussion protocol.

With the Colts playing on Thursday, Luck doesn't have much time to be cleared from a concussion. Tolzien could make his third career start as a result.

Colts' Scott Tolzien: Strong second preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolzien was 13-of-18 for 107 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions in Saturday's preseason loss to Baltimore.

Tolzien looked sharper in his second preseason game and appeared to put some distance between himself and Stephen Morris for the backup job behind Andrew Luck.

Colts' Scott Tolzien: Starts preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolzien started Saturday's preseason game at Buffalo, and completed 12-of-23 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown while rushing once for one yard.

Tolzien was the beneficiary of coach Chuck Pagano's decision to sit Andrew Luck. He got more reps than Stephen Morris, suggesting that Tolzien is indeed the clubhouse leader to win the Colts backup job.
