Andrew Luck (kidney) is expected to return in mid-December.

That puts him on track to return right around fantasy playoff time. Luck was originally given a 2-to-6 week timetable but that seems to have stretched into the 4-to-6 week range. Matt Hasselbeck will hold down the fort during his absence.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he wants Andrew Luck to change his running style after the quarterback suffered a lacerated kidney against the Broncos.

"He knows full well that he can't do that. He can't put himself and this team in jeopardy," Pagano said. "You love the grit, and you love the toughness and all that stuff. But playing the position like a linebacker? You can't." Luck took several big hits on third-down scrambles against Denver, but his willingness to escape the pocket and make plays with his legs contributed to easily his best performance of the season. Perhaps Luck could slide more often, but his ability to pick up tough yards on the ground is an important facet of his game which will never go away completely. Unfortunately, this time it costs him at least a month.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Colts expect Andrew Luck (lacerated kidney) to miss "at least a month."

Werder said the team is prepared for an even longer absence. Hopes of Luck returning shortly after the bye week can now be thrown out the window, and he is not a must hold in shallower leagues. Matt Hasselbeck will get the nod with Luck sidelined, but he was just a mid-range QB2 in two starts earlier this season. The entire passing game takes a hit without Luck in the lineup, but T.Y. Hilton was targeted 22 times across Hasselbeck's two starts. Hilton will remain on the WR2 map and could have some buy-low value considering the Colts' cake schedule down the stretch.

Andrew Luck has been diagnosed with a lacerated kidney, and will be sidelined 2-6 weeks.

Luck also has a partial tear of an abdominal muscle. "We won't put Andrew out there until he's ready," coach Chuck Pagano said. "It is one heck of a blow." Despite the timeline released by the team, Pagano says it's "way too early" to speculate on a return date. Luck suffered the injury on a fourth quarter scramble in Sunday's win over the Broncos, but didn't leave the game. He was sent for further testing on Monday. It's a hammer blow to the Colts' odds of finishing over .500, but won't end their pursuit of another AFC South title. Matt Hasselbeck is a competent backup, and the Colts play in the worst division in football. As for fantasy owners, it downgrades all Indy's skill players. T.Y. Hilton is a mid-range WR2, with Donte Moncrief now firmly a WR3.

New Colts OC Rob Chudzinski simplified the offense ahead of the Week 9 win over the Broncos.

"I think that was probably the difference. We scaled back a lot," Andre Johnson said. "Guys were just flying around out there, playing as hard as possible, trying to make plays." Chud will likely add more wrinkles over the bye week, but the streamlined approach led to Andrew Luck's best game of the season against possibly the best defense he has faced. With Luck finally looking decisive in the pared-down attacked, the Colts should look to keep the offense as simple as possible moving forward.
Nov 10 - 11:21 AM

Andrew Luck completed 21-of-36 passes for 252 yards and two touchdowns and rushed six times for 34 yards Week 9 against the Broncos.

Luck found his rhythm late against the Panthers last week, and he kept that momentum going this week even with a new offensive coordinator. Luck made quick decisions all game and did a nice job checking down or escaping the pocket when the pass was not there. Luck also picked up a couple important third downs on the ground, but he paid for the yardage by taking several big hits. His first touchdown was a pass in the flat to Jack Doyle in the second quarter, and his second touchdown was a check-down to Ahmad Bradshaw in the fourth. Despite his questionable play on the field, Luck has multiple touchdowns in all but one game this season. He will be a QB1 against Atlanta after the bye week.
Nov 8 - 7:40 PM

Andrew Luck (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Luck's health isn't a concern, but his matchup is. Even though he's continued to produce fantasy points during his prolonged slump, he's just a QB2 for Week 9.
Nov 5 - 4:14 PM

Andrew Luck said ex-OC Pep Hamilton's firing "felt like a gut punch."

Luck, who also played for Hamilton at Stanford, appeared shaken by the news. "Lot of emotions, none of them good," Luck said. "If you’re playing well as an offense, (this) probably doesn’t happen. If you’re winning games, it probably doesn’t happen." New OC Rob Chudzinski faces a tough task trying to turn both Luck's and the Colts' seasons around, and the schedule is not doing either any favors. Luck will be tough to use this week against the Broncos' elite defense.
Nov 5 - 9:50 AM

Andrew Luck (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Luck played through the injury in Monday night’s loss. It shouldn’t have an impact on his status. Luck is a lower-end QB1 against Denver’s top pass defense.
Nov 4 - 6:14 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Andrew Luck (ribs, shoulder) is "fully healthy now."

Luck sprained his shoulder earlier in the season, and FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported over the weekend that Luck also suffered multiple fractured ribs in Week 3. Luck, of course, missed Weeks 4 and 5 before returning Week 6. Some still wondered if he was healthy. But Luck hasn't been on the injury report, and his troubles seem to be just a bout of poor play. Things won't get any easier this week at home against the Broncos' No. 1-ranked pass defense.
Nov 4 - 11:20 AM

Andrew Luck completed 23-of-47 passes for 231 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Colts' 29-26, Week 8 overtime loss to the Panthers on Monday night.

He added 35 rushing yards on six carries. Luck played extremely poorly in the first half and much of the first three quarters of this one before rallying the Colts back from a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime and actually give them a 26-23 lead in the extra frame. A bad snap from C Jonotthan Harrison and a Luck interception on the opening two possessions put the Colts in a 10-0 deficit. Luck later sailed a fourth-quarter pass over T.Y. Hilton's head for his second INT. After that, Luck led the Colts to 20 unanswered points with touchdown strikes to Andre Johnson and Coby Fleener. He attempted multiple risky passes that could have been late-game picks, but got away with them before staring down Fleener and getting picked off a third time over the middle in OT to lead to the Panthers' game-winning field goal. After eight games, Luck is on pace to throw a career-worst 24 picks. He gets the Broncos' elite pass defense at home in Week 9.
Nov 3 - 12:30 AM

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports Andrew Luck has been dealing with multiple rib fractures since Week 3.

Luck hasn't looked like himself and now we have a better idea why. He missed two games with a shoulder injury earlier this year but his ribs are still bothering him. It appears that Luck will continue to play through the injury. He's on the QB1 borderline this week against a tough Panthers defense. Luck can rest during Indy's bye in Week 10.
Nov 1 - 12:57 PM

Andrew Luck said he was "frustrated" with his performance following the Week 7 loss to the Saints.

"I'm not happy with how I played or the result of the game," Luck said. "I'd say I'm frustrated up here. As a unit, we're frustrated and I'm frustrated with myself." Luck struggled with his accuracy for the second game in a row and threw two picks in the first half against New Orleans. Luck bounced back with three scores in the second half, but two were on fluky deep passes to T.Y. Hilton where the defender fell down. Luck does not look completely healthy, but he was not playing well even before the shoulder injury.
Oct 26 - 1:02 PM

Andrew Luck completed 23-of-44 passes for 333 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Indianapolis' 27-21, Week 7 loss to the Saints.

Luck was positively dreadful in the first half, entering halftime 9-of-19 for 79 yards, zero scores and two picks. Thanks in part to two blown Delvin Breaux coverages, he came alive after the break, saving his fantasy day and nearly rallying the Colts from a 27-0 deficit. It was still a concerning performance. Luck was out of sorts in quarters one and two, hurrying throws and acting frenetic in the pocket. His second interception was as bad of a pass as you will ever see an NFL quarterback make. Luck has a much tougher matchup for Week 8, as the Colts will travel to Carolina for Monday Night Football.
