Austin Collie is currently being listed as day-to-day and it doesn't seem like the injury is too severe. 

According to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, head coach Chuck Pagano is putting player safety above everything.

He's leaving it up to Collie and team doctors to decide when he the receiver (who does have a history of concussions) should return.

-----END OF UPDATE-----

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Austin Collie has left the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The news comes from Colts beat writer Mike Chappell:

#Colts Austin Collie in locker room being evaluated. No reason given, but he took a big hit on incompletion.

Collie, of course, has had plenty of problems with concussions in the past, so this is certainly not the news that anyone wants to hear. 

According to Pro Football Talk's Darin Gantt, he took a shot to the head from linebacker Larry Foote.

We'll keep you posted as we hear more about Collie's condition.
