Andrew Luck Officially Ruled Out for Week 3 Game vs. Browns
The weekly Andrew Luck update has been coming sooner and sooner each week, and head coach Chuck Pagano has already ruled him out for Week 3’s home game against the Browns.
The latest Andrew Luck announcement is hardly a surprise for the Colts’ fanbase, but Pagano did reveal a couple of interesting nuggets regarding his status.
According to the Indianpolis Star’s Stephen Holder, Pagano gave him an emphatic “no” when asked if he has any doubt that Luck will return at some point this season.
Additionally, Pagano said he still doesn’t have a timetable for when Luck will rejoin the team in practice.
Pagano’s latest statements were a bit conflicting. He’d have to have some doubt that Luck will play this season if there remains to be no timetable for his return to practice, especially if this team could be 0-4 or 0-5 before he’s ready to come back and play.
The Colts have already started two different quarterbacks this season during their 0-2 start.

Jacoby Brissett gave fans much more hope than Scott Tolzien did in Week 1, but he still made a crucial mistake with an overtime interception that cost the Colts a win. Brissett should only get better with more practice and game reps to learn the offense, but it’s still going to be difficult to win games with him as the starter.
A significant amount of Colts fans seem to be ready to give up on the season and sit Luck for the rest of the year, and that could be a real possibility with a loss to the Browns on Sunday.
We learned a little with Pagano’s announcement today, but it sounds like no one really knows what the plan is for Andrew Luck in 2017.
