Colts Injury Report: Andrew Luck Practices, Jack Doyle Out


Andrew Luck sticks with his recovery plan and practices on Friday, but tight end Jack Doyle will be out this week with a concussion.

Andrew Luck got in his first practice of the season on Wednesday then took Thursday off as a rest day for his shoulder. Luck was back on the practice field in a limited fashion on Friday as he continues to shake the rust off from his 10-month recovery.

Tight end Jack Doyle was forced to leave last week’s game with a concussion, and he hasn’t progressed enough to pass the NFL’s concussion protocol. Doyle did not practice at all on Friday, and this will be a big loss for Jacoby Brissett and this passing offense.

Cornerback Rashaan Melvin has been a star in the Colt’s secondary this season, but he’s listed as questionable for this week’s game against the 49ers. He’s participated in a limited practice in two out of three days this week, but he will likely be a game-time decision on Sunday.
