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 QB Andrew Luck might need another surgery, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Luck is scheduled to resume throwing soon. How he feels then will determine whether he goes under the knife again in January. The procedure would address biceps tendinitis, which is what caused pain and discomfort when he resumed throwing earlier this year. Recovery from that surgery tends to take 3-6 months. Luck is reportedly "optimistic" that he'll avoid surgery after extensive treatment and rehab in Europe. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.

Colts QB Andrew Luck has "additional issues" with his throwing shoulder, beyond the torn labrum that he had surgery on in January, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The belief is that the problems arose from Luck altering his throwing motion to compensate for the original injury. He's sought multiple opinions, but doctors still don't know exactly what's ailing him. No one has recommended another surgery, per Rapoport, but "it remains a possibility." Luck will spend the next few months rehabbing before any other decisions are made. The Colts believe he'll be ready for the start of the 2018 season -- but we can't consider that a lock based on how this has played out and everything we know now. Luck's dynasty stock has certainly taken a hit.

The Colts have placed QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) on IR, officially ending his 2017 season. The news doesn't come as a surprise to anyone who's been paying attention. Luck returned to practice in early October but was shut down a couple of weeks later after experiencing soreness in that throwing shoulder. He hasn't thrown since. At this point, we can't even be sure that he'll be ready for the start of the offseason program. Luck's health will again be 1 of the biggest NFL storylines this winter and spring. QB Jacoby Brissett will finish out this season as Indy's starter.

Colts QB Andrew Luck is "not close to returning to practice," according to the Indy Star's Stephen Holder. That's just practice. Luck is at least a couple of weeks beyond that from being ready to play in a game. He's still experiencing soreness in that throwing shoulder, per Holder, and is set to visit multiple specialists this week. At this point, we'd be surprised if Luck played this season. He's not worth hanging on to in redraft leagues.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano confirmed on Monday that QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) won't practice this week or play against the Bengals on Sunday. Luck figures to need another couple of weeks of practice once he gets back out there before he's ready for game action. CBS' Jason La Canfora reported over the weekend that Luck is unlikely to play before December. There's certainly a chance he doesn't play at all this season.
