Colts QB Andrew Luck told the Indianapolis Star this week that his surgically repaired shoulder is "feeling better and better every week." But he also said that he has not yet resumed throwing. Earlier this month, Luck spoke as though he didn't yet know whether he'd be ready for training camp. Owner Jim Irsay billed the surgery as a "positive" in early June, as it repaired an issue Luck had been playing through for a while. But we're anxious to see Luck take the field again and prove that all remains positive. He'll carry some risk in early drafts, but there's time for the veteran QB to assuage worries before the heat of fantasy football draft season in late August and early September.
Colts GM Chris Ballard said Wednesday that QB Andrew Luck is experiencing soreness in his throwing shoulder. He received a cortisone shot and won't practice this week. This certainly qualifies as a setback. We'd now be surprised to see Luck before the Colts return from their Week 11 bye -- and it's possible he doesn't play at all this season.
Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) told ESPN that he won't play against the Jaguars next weekend. That's been the belief for a while now, with Week 8 looking like his earliest possible return. That's a road game against the Bengals -- a tough spot for a guy coming off a serious throwing-shoulder injury. Week 9 brings a better matchup vs. Houston's 24th-ranked QB defense. Of course, there's still no guarantee that Luck is even ready by then.
Colts HC Chuck Pagano said Wednesday that QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is still "more than a week away" from being ready to make his 2017 debut. So it sounds like Week 8 against Cincinnati is the earliest we'll see him. (It's probably a good thing that he's missing next week's game vs. the Jaguars elite pass defense, anyway.) We'll continue to track his progress.
Colts HC Chuck Pagano ruled out QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) for this weekend's game against the 49ers. No surprise there. Pagano did confirm, however, that Luck will make his practice debut on Wednesday. It gives him a shot to return for Week 6 against the Titans.
Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will return to practice this week, GM Chris Ballard said Monday. It'll be Luck's 1st official work since undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder in January. “We’ll slowly start working him back into practice this week," Ballard said. “We’ll see how much he gets. But we’ve got a plan in place to where we want him to start getting him reps and then, in time as we can get him incorporated back into team work and all that, we’ll get him back on the field." Luck is expected to need at least 2 weeks of practice before playing in a game. That makes Week 6 his earliest likely return. Insider Mike Chappell calls Week 7 or 8 "more likely." Regardless, Luck is certainly worth scooping up if he's available in your fantasy league. He'll carry some risk in his 1st game or 2 but could re-emerge as a high-end QB1 over the 2nd half of the season.
