Retired Newcastle champion-turned-administrator Joel Griffiths has lashed members of the A-League outfit who appear to not care about winning.Griffiths, who now holds a senior football department role at the club, believes the fifth-placed Jets are being held back by players going through the motions on the pitch.I look at reactions from the players when we do get a goal against us. I look at reactions more than their performances, Griffiths told AAP.I want to see players who actually want to win, not just are happy to be out there.And on the weekend I felt that there were a couple of players that were just happy to be out there, happy to just do enough when sometimes enough isnt enough.Youve actually got to go the extra mile and want to win. (Midfielder) Wayne Brown and our captain Nigel (Boogaard) are perfect examples of that. They constantly want to win.Griffiths, the A-Leagues top goal-scorer in the Jets 2007-08 championship-winning campaign, suggested the clubs injury-crisis has led to a lack of accountability among players this season.He said strengthening of the squad through the recent returns of Boogaard, Daniel Mullen, Andrew Nabbout and Morten Nordstrand was boosting the squads mindset.Now weve got a couple of wins and everyones coming back, people are going into games knowing that they have got to perform week-in, week-out, otherwise we have good, quality players on the bench, Griffiths said.Everyones accountable now.On a two-game winning streak for the first time this season, the Jets will soon have a full complement at their disposal with Finnish striker Aleksandr Kokko set to be back for the Boxing Day clash with Wellington.Griffiths also backed coach Mark Jones recent declaration the sides underwhelming season was down to injuries.You take eight players out of Sydney FC or Brisbane Roar, and all of a sudden youll have a team that will struggle, he said at the Jack Newton Classic in the NSW Hunter Valley.Im not going to get carried away with the two wins, because we expect to win every game, but if we keep rolling along then well sneak up the table and could surprise.The important thing for us is make sure our youth system is better so we can rely on players when we do have a crisis.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts second straight win may have cost them quarterback Andrew Luck.Luck entered the concussion protocol after complaining about concussion-like symptoms following Sundays 24-17 victory over Tennessee. Coach Chuck Pagano said Monday he believes the injury concussion occurred in the fourth quarter, but couldnt cite which play Luck was injured on.The surprising news came a little more than 24 hours after Pagano told reporters the Colts had no significant injuries from the game. Indy (5-5) hosts Pittsburgh on Thanksgiving night, leaving little time for Luck to recover. If he cant play the Colts will likely go with backup Scott Tolzien, who hasnt thrown a regular-season pass since the 2013 season.Andrew and (safety) Clayton Geathers, pretty much well after we were all done with media and the locker room and things like that, both guys didnt feel right, Pagano said Monday. Both guys went in the training room and saw our docs and both were evaluated for concussions. Both are in the protocol and its up to the docs and trainers to monitor that situation, so thats where thats at.Geathers also entered the protocol after apparently getting hurt on the final defensive play of the game.Even with Luck healthy and playing pretty well this year, its been a struggle. Indy needed fourth-quarter rallies to win its first two games and had to hold off opponents comeback bids in each of the last three wins.Last year, Luck missed nine games with multiple injuries, the last seven because of a lacerated kidney. To help keep him healthy this season, the Colts reduced his workload at practice. But he has been sacked a league-high 35 times.So when Luck was not taking snaps at practice Monday, it wasnt immediately clear whether it was part of the routine or a new injury.After practice, Pagano clarified what had happened -- and the process Luuck must undergo before playing again.ddddddddddddYou have to feel better, you have to take an impact test and pass an impact test, then practice non-contact, then have another day and then take another impact test and be cleared by an independent, he said. Again, that is our trainers and docs that will handle that.The timing couldnt be worse.Indy just moved back into second place in the AFC South and got back into the playoff hunt by stringing together its first winning streak of the season. A third straight win would be a major step forward for a team that has been inconsistent all season.Now, the Colts will probably face an old nemesis, Pittsburgh (5-5), without their star quarterback.The Steelers have won three straight in the series and 13 of the last 15 since 1984, and they just snapped a four-game losing streak with a win Sunday at Cleveland.Its not the first time the Colts have faced this sort of predicament. Lucks 2015 injuries forced the Colts to rely on four additional quarterbacks to get through a season in which they finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2011. And Indy won the final game after signing Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley as replacement quarterbacks the week of the game.Tolzien has two career starts, both in 2013 when he replaced injured Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He finished that season 55 of 90 with 717 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions.But the short week doesnt leave much time for Pagano to fret.He has a limited amount of exposure, but he is a pro, Pagano said. Again, if he has to roll and be the guy then he will do a great job. He prepares really well every single day.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
