Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Austin Collie left Sunday night’s 26-24 loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first quarter with a possible concussion.
Collie, who missed seven games in 2010 after suffering a pair of concussions, took a blow to the head from Pittsburgh linebacker Larry Foote while trying to haul in a pass from Andrew Luck. He was momentarily dazed before walking off the field under his own power and taken to the locker room for tests.
