INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano wouldn’t commit to who would start at quarterback on Sunday.

Pagano spoke Friday during a normal afternoon press conference. Both Andrew Luck and Matt Hasselbeck have been ruled out for Sunday’s game.

“Not really” with a smile was his response to a reporter asking if he wanted to talk about what quarterback would start Sunday, following up with a “TBA.”

Later on in the press conference, Pagano said all of the newly-signed quarterbacks might play.

The press conference came after big news in the Colts world on Thursday.

WISH-TV Colts Insider Mike Wells reported that  Pagano will not be retained at the end of the season.

Colts owner Jim Irsay responded to the reports, saying, “As of today, no decision has been made with respect to any structural changes within the Colts organization for 2016 and beyond.”

Pagano wouldn’t speak to that news on Friday, saying he hasn’t had time to think about it while preparing for Sunday’s game.
