Andrew Luck Will Not Return to Practice This Week


Andrew Luck was reportedly set to return to practice this week, and would possibly be able to play for the Colts in two to three weeks. However, head coach Chuck Pagano said the Colts’ franchise quarterback is still at least a week away from practicing.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported last Sunday that Andrew Luck could return to practice this week, and speculated he may be able to reclaim his starting role for Week 7’s game against the Jaguars.

Colts fans had to take in that news with caution as nothing has been that simple during Luck‘s recovery from offseason shoulder surgery. CNHI Sports’ George Bremer was the first to break the story that Luck won’t practice this week.

“He’s doing great,” Pagano told ESPN’s Colts reporter Mike Wells. “Nothing’s changed. We were hopeful, and it didn’t work out.”

Luck‘s shoulder rehab has been the primary story revolving around the Colts since January, and it looks like it’s not going away.

Luckily for Indianapolis, they’ve been getting some amazing play from Jacoby Brissett in Luck’s absence.

Brissett completed 17 of his 24 pass attempts last Sunday for 259 yards and scored 3 total touchdowns opposed to 0 interceptions. He’ll face the stiffest test of his young Colts career this week as Indianapolis travels to Seattle for Sunday Night Football.

The Colts’ roster has been ravaged with injuries this season, but they’ve showed plenty of resilience as they’re an overtime loss away from sitting at 2-1 after three weeks.

The Andrew Luck situation continues to be full of uncertainty, and Colts fans will have to hold out hope that next week brings better news as he continues the long road to recovery from a torn labrum.
