NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Colts expect Andrew Luck (shoulder, IR) to be ready for the 2018 season.

Luck will be shut down for 2-3 months before he's reevaluated. The Colts don't think he'll need surgery, but it hasn't been ruled out. Luck played through his labrum tear for two years, so he's dealing with significant damage. It's a concern for his career outlook, as Luck hasn't thrown since 2016 and will be entering his age-29 season. Luck is signed for the next four years at $24.6 million annually.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Andrew Luck's surgically-repaired shoulder "stopped getting better" about a week and a half ago.

Per RapSheet, that's when Luck started seeking second opinions, visiting "4-5" doctors. Their recommendation was to stop throwing for "several months" in an effort to stamp out the soreness. It's concerning news, as it means Luck is still without a concrete timeline 10 months after going under the knife. Speaking Thursday, GM Chris Ballard insisted the issue was not career-ending, but rather ominously added the team was "doing everything we can to have a chance to have a long-term career." It's hard to believe Luck won't be ready for 2018, but knowing what we know right now, it should not be taken for granted.

Colts placed Andrew Luck (shoulder surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

The Colts' disingenuous assertion that Luck had a chance to return in 2017 has finally been put to rest. It remains unclear if Luck ever truly had a shot at playing this season. There's ample evidence to suggest "no." The official move comes four days after FOX's Jay Glazer reported Luck was "still in pain," and "seeking further opinions." It's an ominous development seeing as it's been nearly 10 months since Luck went under the knife. Even for serious shoulder surgery, this is an unusually long recovery for a football player. That being said, there's no real reason to believe Luck won't be ready for the 2018 season. He isn't scheduled for further surgery. Perhaps older than many people realize, Luck turns 29 next September. It's a genuine shame how much of Luck's prime has been wasted on awful 53-man rosters.
Nov 2 - 1:37 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 9.

Jacoby Brissett will make another start, and there is increasing speculation Luck won't play at all this season. Luck should have been dropped in re-draft leagues months ago. Keeping Luck on the 53 has allowed Colts owner Jim Irsay to save money by not having to pay weekly game checks to another player. It has also prevented first-year GM Chris Ballard from maximizing roster spots.
Oct 30 - 4:35 PM

FOX's Jay Glazer reports Andrew Luck (shoulder surgery) is "still in pain," and is "seeking further opinions to figure why."

Per Glazer, Luck started "feeling pain after throwing couple weeks ago." GM Chris Ballard recently confirmed as much. Luck is nowhere close to returning, and will most likely miss the remainder of 2017. The Colts need to shift their mindset to ensuring Luck is ready for 2018.
Oct 29 - 3:26 PM

Colts declared QB Andrew Luck, C Dillon Day, CB Rashaan Melvin, OLB John Simon, ILB Anthony Walker, OG Isaiah Williams, CB Quincy Wilson inactive for Week 8 against the Bengals.

Luck is still rehabbing from shoulder surgery while Simon is week-to-week with a neck injury. Kamar Aiken (shoulder), Darius Butler (ankle), T.J Green (hamstring) and Ryan Kelly (knee, pelvis) are all active for the Colts.
Oct 29 - 11:38 AM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said it's "too early to tell" if Andrew Luck (shoulder) will resume practicing next week.

It's been a little over a week since Luck's latest setback. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that a late-November return would be Luck's best-case scenario. The Colts have been hesitant to shut Luck down for the year, though it might end up being their best course of action. Jacoby Brissett will continue to fill in under center.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 8.

We're not holding our breath on a Luck 2017 return.
Oct 23 - 4:37 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Andrew Luck (shoulder) will return if he's healthy this season, regardless of the Colts' record.

The Colts are giving somewhat mixed signals as Jacoby Brissett has been told to prepare as if he'll be the starter for the rest of the season, though Rapoport said it's a "fact" that Luck will return if healthy. Per Rapsheet, Luck will not practice this week following his latest setback and a late November return is probably his best case scenario. The Colts will continue to hold off on placing Luck on season-ending I.R., but his lack of tangible progress may eventually force their hand.
Oct 22 - 12:26 PM

The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer conceded Wednesday he "wouldn't be surprised" if Andrew Luck (shoulder) missed the entire season.

Keefer's Indy Star colleague, Stephen Holder, also suggested Luck is no lock to play again this year following the setback in his surgically repaired shoulder. To put it frankly, the Colts lied to their fanbase. Owner Jim Irsay stated as late as the final week of preseason that Luck had a chance to play in Week 1, and the Colts activated Luck from the PUP list in what was perceived as a sign he would play inside the first seven weeks. None of those things happened, and the team is now claiming a setback. Luck should have been dropped in re-draft leagues long ago. At this point, we expect Jacoby Brissett to be the Colts' rest-of-season starter.
Oct 18 - 7:18 PM

Colts GM Chris Ballard said Andrew Luck has experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired right (throwing) shoulder and will not practice this week.

This qualifies as a significant setback, no matter how the Colts try and spin it. Luck practiced the past two weeks and appeared to be knocking on the door of playing sometime soon. He's now again out indefinitely, leaving Jacoby Brissett the starter for the next few weeks and further dropping the floors of T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. The Colts' bye week comes Week 11.
Oct 18 - 4:03 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Andrew Luck (shoulder) will not play Week 6 against the Titans.

Pagano did say Luck will work with the scout team and see snaps in 7-on-7s, which is more than he did in practice last week. The Colts are taking Luck's recovery painfully slow, but we are at least seeing progress. That said, it seems unlikely he is ready to face the Jaguars in Week 7.
Oct 12 - 12:22 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 6.

He's now past the six-game window that would have allowed the Colts to save a roster spot had Luck been placed on reserve/PUP. It's fair to wonder at this point if the Colts activated Luck before Week 1 to keep fans coming back to the stadium. Latest reports have Luck unlikely to play before Halloween.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Jacoby Brissett will have an excellent matchup with the Titans. Even including a 92-yard, one-score performance from Jay Cutler, they’ve given up the 3rd-most fantasy points to QBs. Brissett is coming off a solid 314-yard game with a 64.7% completion rate. He wasn't able to find the end zone through the air but he scored once on the ground and he's now scored more rushing touchdowns (3) than passing (2). Stacking T.Y. Hilton with Brissett looks like an appealing option - heading into Week 4, the Titans were allowing the most passes (12.5) and 3rd-most yards (98.2) to WR1s (per FO).
Oct 9 - 4:36 PM

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, it remains "highly doubtful" Andrew Luck (shoulder) will appear in a game this month.

Luck hasn't had any setbacks since beginning his throwing program, though according to La Canfora, he still faces a "month of continued rehab and incremental gains as he works his way back into the lineup." The former first overall pick still has several hurdles to clear in his recovery and has yet to practice on back-to-back days or work with the first-team offense. With Luck now slated to miss the entire first half of the season, this is looking like a lost year for Indianapolis.
