A report surfaced that Andrew Luck may be placed on the regular season PUP list, but Ballard sticks to his word.
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora wrote an article on Luck that had the NFL world swirling on Tuesday.
One of the main takeaways of the article was La Canfora reporting that he heard “rumblings” that Andrew Luck would be placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list to begin the regular season.
This would keep Luck out of the lineup for at least the first six games of the year.
However, many Colts beat writers are reporting that general manager Chris Ballard still believes Luck will be taken off the PUP list before the beginning of the regular season.
La Canfora’s report of hearing “rumblings” could be sound, but it appears that those rumblings are not coming from Ballard.
Ballard has stated that this was the plan ever since the Colts originally placed Luck on the PUP list to begin training camp.
However, Ballard could keep his promise of keeping Luck off the regular season PUP list and he could still miss a couple of games.
Placing Luck on the PUP list and automatically forcing him to the sidelines for the first six games would not be wise.
It would be worth taking up a roster spot to wait and see if Luck can get healthy before the year’s seventh game.
