Colts owner Jim Irsay revealed Sunday that QB Andrew Luck has resumed throwing -- but also admitted that his Week 1 status remains uncertain. "He could start out in Los Angeles (Week 1)," Irsay said. "So, I mean, I don't want to act like that is a foregone conclusion that he's not going to be starting out there. I think he could or he also could not. But again, we don't see an extended delay. We're not going to put a timetable on it." This matches GM Chris Ballard's comments on Luck's status earlier this week. Since then, Luck's ADP has dropped from the late 4th round to the early 5th.

Colts GM Chris Ballard told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero that QB Andrew Luck's Week 1 status is "to be determined." Ballard did say that he expects Luck to avoid the regular-season PUP list, which would cost him the first 6 games. But this is the 1st time we've heard from the team that Luck might not be ready by Week 1. Ballard did say that Luck has progressed in his throwing program but that the team won't rush him. He remains overpriced at his late-4th-round ADP.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Sirius XM radio on Monday that there's a "chance [Colts QB Andrew Luck] isn't ready to open the season." Insider Jason La Canfora had a similar report last week. The Colts have been tight-lipped all along about Luck's rehab schedule from January shoulder surgery. All we really know is that he still hasn't resumed throwing. We're still almost 5 weeks away from the regular-season opener, but Luck becomes a riskier and riskier fantasy pick every day he remains sidelined. His 12-team ADP is still sitting in the late 4th round.

Colts QB Andrew Luck spoke to the media on Saturday about his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery. He said he's working on regaining strength in the shoulder and putting weight back on. "I know we're doing this right," he said of the rehab. "We're not gonna skip any steps. The end game is for me to be better than I was before I was injured." Luck added that he an see the "light at the end of the tunnel" but wouldn't put a date on his return. We've still heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing the start of the regular season, but it also doesn't sound like he's particularly close to receiving full clearance. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his progress. Luck's ADP has sunk a bit, but he's still going in the 5th round of recent MFL10s.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been placed on the active PUP list to start training camp. It's not a major surprise. And remember that he can be activated at any time and play Week 1. GM Chris Ballard did reveal on Monday that Luck has resumed throwing, hasn't experienced any setbacks and is on track to be ready for the start of the season. Ballard added that Luck is now working on "rebuilding strength" in his throwing shoulder. Neither the team nor Luck has expressed much concern about the situation this offseason, but there remains added risk here until we see him on the field.

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 owner Jim Irsay put a sunny spin on QB Andrew Luck's offseason shoulder surgery. "This [surgery] has been a positive thing, not a negative thing or anything like that," Irsay said. "He was really struggling going through the process of being ready to play [each week last season]. This was, quite frankly, not that complicated of a surgery. This was a simple labrum repair. There are a lot of other things that could have been involved with this surgery that weren't." Irsay didn't give a timetable for Luck's return to the field, though. Luck offered only this: "Feeling great. Rehab is going well. It's a long and patient process." His status will be 1 of the biggest storylines of the summer. Luck has come off the board in the early 5th round of recent MFL10 drafts.

Colts QB Andrew Luck still hasn't started throwing again after undergoing surgery on his throwing shoulder back in January, HC Chuck Pagano said on Tuesday. Luck was originally expected to resume throwing sometime in April. The Colts have been tight-lipped about his recovery all offseason, and it remains unclear if he'll be ready for the start of training camp. Luck's status will be 1 of the bigger storylines of the summer.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Colts QB Andrew Luck is looking at 6 months of rehab for a "full return." He's expected to resume throwing in 3 months. The 6-month timeline takes us into mid-July, right around the start of training camp. So barring setbacks, Luck should be ready to roll well ahead of the start of the 2017 season. But this was clearly a significant procedure to his throwing shoulder. It'll be a situation to track all offseason.

Colts owner Jim Irsay revealed via Twitter on Thursday that QB Andrew Luck recently underwent surgery on his right (throwing) shoulder. The issue didn't cost him any games this past year -- he missed 1 with a concussion -- but Luck was a regular on the injury report and often limited in practice early in the week. Irsay says the shoulder injury has "lingered since 2015" -- presumably when he suffered a sprain in Week 3 of that year and missed the following game. Luck is expected to be ready for the start of the 2017 campaign, according to Irsay, but we'll be looking for more information on the procedure Luck had and exactly how long he'll be sidelined.

Colts QB Andrew Luck completed just 24 of 45 passes (53.5%) for 276 yards, 2 TDs and 2 INTs in Sunday's loss to the Texans. He also lost a fumble. Luck looked out of sync for much of the afternoon, but the Texans defense also deserves credit for a strong outing. RB Frank Gore did most of the work on Luck's 1st TD, taking a screen pass 18 yards to the house. The 2nd score was a deep ball to T.Y. Hilton from 35 yards out. Bouncing back won't be easy in Minnesota next week against the league's 2nd-ranked QB defense. Consider Luck a lower-end QB1 for that one.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (concussion) is not listed on the final injury report. He's received full clearance and will play on Monday night against the Jets' leaky pass defense. Luck is a high-end QB1 for Week 13.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (concussion) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. If he hasn't made it through the league's protocol yet, he's close. Luck is on track to return for Monday night's game against the Jets. He'll be a high-end QB1 in that plus matchup.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (concussion) was on the practice field on Monday. That doesn't necessarily mean he's passed through the league's protocol, but he's at least making progress. Luck has a good chance to return for next Monday night's game against the Jets. We'll get another update Wednesday.

Colts QB Andrew Luck (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Thursday night's game against Steelers. He'll try to gain clearance ahead of Week 13's game vs. the Jets. QB Scott Tolzien will make his 1st start in 3 years. He's obviously a big downgrade for the entire offense. Expect a bunch of Frank Gore on Thanksgiving.

As expected, Colts QB Andrew Luck (concussion) did not practice on Tuesday. He's a long shot to be cleared in time for Thursday night's game against the Steelers. That leaves QB Scott Tolzien as Indy's likely starter. On 91 career regular-season attempts, he's tossed 1 TD vs. 5 INTs.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano announced Monday that QB Andrew Luck is in the concussion protocol. He never left yesterday's game against the Titans but reportedly starting experiencing symptoms afterward. It's the 1st concussion of Luck's pro career, but he has just 4 days to get cleared if he's to play against the Steelers on Thursday night. That seems unlikely, but we'll track his progress. If Luck can't go, QB Scott Tolzien would draw the start. It'd obviously be a massive downgrade for the entire offense.

Colts QB Andrew Luck was limited for the 2nd straight practice on Thursday. GM Ryan Grigson explained that it's part of the team's plan for its signal-caller. “He’s all good,” Grigson said. “The guy’s thrown a zillion balls (this offseason/preseason). The media’s seen it, in Anderson [in training camp] day in and day out throwing a ton of balls with a lot of velocity — even knocking some guys over. I guess you could sit there and look for something that’s not there, but I’m just saying he’s going to be ready for the game this weekend, and we have a plan that we think’s best for him, and one he feels good about, and that’s what we’re doing." We'll keep an eye on Luck on Sunday, but he looked completely healthy this preseason. Fire him up as a high-end QB1.

Colts QB Andrew Luck was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice with a shoulder issue. It's the 1st we've heard of it. There's been nothing to suggest that Luck will be impacted against the Lions this weekend, but it's worth keeping an eye on. Remember that he missed 2 games last year with a partially separated throwing shoulder.
