Andrew Luck Will Practice Again This Week


The Colts are sticking to their plan of brining Andrew Luck along slowly as he continues to build up strength in his throwing arm. He is set to practice on Thursday and Saturday leading up to the Colts’ game in Tennessee on Monday night.

Andrew Luck began practicing for the first time of the 2017 season last week. He was a limited participant on Wednesday, took a rest day on Thursday, and then came back to a limited practice session on Friday.

ESPN’s Mike Wells reports that Luck will be on a similar schedule this week except he will practice on Thursday, rest on Friday, and practice again on Saturday with the altered Monday night game practice schedule.

Wells also reports that Luck will get some work in during 7-on-7 drills, and he will be responsible for running Tennessee‘s scout team offense against the Colts’ defense.

I’m not really sure how running the scout team helps Luck get back on the field any quicker as that time could probably be better used with him running some drills by himself off to the side. Nevertheless, he will be taking on a slightly larger workload this week as he progresses in his recovery.

The Colts are in good hands with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback while Luck continues to work himself back into shape. And the Titans could be forced to go with a backup quarterback on the other side of the ball this week as well as Marcus Mariota recovers from a hamstring injury.

Andrew Luck is taking the next step in his recovery, but we still don’t know the timeline for a potential return.
