Colts Vs. Steelers Score Update: Pittsburgh Defeats Indianapolis 26-24

The Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Indianapolis Colts 26-24 at Heinz Field on Sunday night.

Pittsburgh got off to a strong start, scoring a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter. Ben Roethlisberger found Antonio Brown for a 57-yard score to give Pittsburgh a 7-0 lead, and later in the period Ike Taylor extended that lead to 14-0 by intercepting an Andrew Luck pass and returning it for a touchdown.

The Colts got even in the second quarter with a pair of one-yard touchdown runs -- the first by Donald Brown and the second by Luck -- and then took a 17-14 lead on a 53-yard field goal from Adam Vinatieri as time expired in the first half.

The Steelers did not find the end zone in the second half, but they got four field goals from Daniel Hrapmann, and that was enough to secure the victory. The Colts' lone second-half score came in the third quarter on a four-yard touchdown pass from Drew Stanton to Griff Whalen.

Austin Collie Injury: Colts WR Has Concussion

Austin Collie has exited the Steelers and Colts game for good after reporting concussion symptoms from a hit sustained in the first quarter.

Andrew Luck threw a pass to Collie through the middle and Collie took a nasty forearm to the helmet from Steeler's linebacker Larry Foote.

Collie was helped off the field and reportedly complained to trainers that something was off. He was taken to the locker room and reported concussion like symptoms.

This isn't Collie's first time getting his skulled rattled. In 2010 he sustained two concussions within a seven-week period, the second of which ended his 2010 season.

Collie had three receptions for 45 yards and one touchdown so far this preseason.
