Andrew Luck (shoulder) will not practice this week.
That almost certainly rules him out for Week 4 against the Seahawks. At this point, it's unclear why the Colts didn't put Luck on the PUP list to open the season. Sep 20 - 12:53 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Browns.

As we stated at this same time last week, the early rule out suggests Luck is unlikely to play in Week 4, as well. Jacoby Brissett will get another start and is worthy of low-end two-quarterback-league consideration against Cleveland. We remain pessimistic Luck will be playing anytime soon. For whatever it's worth, coach Chuck Pagano said Monday he has "no doubt" Luck will play this season.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Cardinals.

The early rule out suggests Luck is unlikely to play in Week 3, as well, although coach Chuck Pagano wouldn't fully rule out Luck returning to practice this week, even if that too seems unlikely. Pagano also said the Colts are considering another quarterback change. They benched a completely-ineffective Scott Tolzien in Week 1 and could turn to Jacoby Brissett full time under center.
Sep 11 - 4:59 PM

Colts declared QB Andrew Luck, CB Vontae Davis, CB Pierre Desir, C Ryan Kelly, WR Chester Rogers, OG Ian Silberman and DT Grover Stewart inactive for Week 1 against the Rams.

Luck is still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery while Davis is week to week with a strained groin. Scott Tolzien will be under center for Sunday's opener.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Andrew Luck (shoulder) is likely to miss "several more weeks."

The good news is Luck is nearing the end of a strength-building program for his surgically repaired shoulder, and can "finally see the light at the end of the tunnel," per La Canfora. Unfortunately, Luck hasn't even resumed throwing yet and the Colts don't even have a timetable for Luck to resume practicing, although it's expected "sooner rather than later." Either way, fantasy owners who drafted Luck can't expect to have him for perhaps upwards of a month, if not more. All Colts skill-position players around him will be severely adversely affected in weekly box scores.

Colts GM Chris Ballard ruled out Andrew Luck (shoulder) for Week 1.

This is not a surprise, but it is concerning Luck continues to have no timeline for when he will return to practice, although Ballard said the team is just being extra cautious. Keeping him off the PUP means the Colts think he will be back before Week 7, but it looks like he could miss a few more games after the opener. Scott Tolzien will start with Luck sidelined.

Colts removed QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) from the PUP list.

This was always the expected outcome, but the Colts created some doubt when they traded for Jacoby Brissett on Saturday. Luck is highly unlikely to start Week 1 after sitting out all of camp and could miss multiple games, but this move at least means the Colts expect him back before Week 7. Carson Palmer is a great stopgap option for fantasy owners looking to replace Luck.
Sep 2 - 4:02 PM

Speaking Thursday, Colts owner Jim Irsay acknowledged Andrew Luck (shoulder) is unlikely to play in Week 1.

Irsay wouldn't formally rule Luck out, but admitted it's likely not happening, and bristled at reports or suggestions that the Colts mishandled Luck's injury. Luck was essentially allowed to play with a torn labrum in his shoulder for the entirety of the 2016 season, then underwent surgery in January. He has been slower than expected to rehab. Luck's return timetable remains uncertain, but the Colts are tentatively expected to activate him from PUP before Week 1. If Luck were to stay on the reserve/PUP list into the season, he would miss the first six games. The Colts still seem confident he'll be ready before Week 7.
Aug 31 - 10:49 PM

Owner Jim Irsay did not divulge when the Colts expect Andrew Luck (shoulder) to return during a fan event on Wednesday.

All the owner said was Luck's recovery is "coming along well" and the quarterback will "be back and have a very, very long and great career with us." With a little over a week until the season opener, it is all but certain Luck will miss Week 1, and the continuous dodging of questions suggests he could be out for even longer. Luck's fantasy owners need to find someone to bridge the gap.
Aug 31 - 8:31 AM

Speaking Monday, Colts coach Chuck Pagano was cryptic on Andrew Luck's (shoulder) status.

"We're moving forward with the guys we have and the guys who are practicing," Pagano said in his finest coachspeak. "I’m not a bookie, I’m not an oddsmaker, but I’m not allowed to put numbers (on it)," Pagano said of Luck's odds of suiting up in Week 1. The preponderance of evidence suggests Luck will not be ready for the opener, and perhaps many weeks after. If you're taking the mid-round plunge on Luck, you need to find a late-round piggyback.
Aug 28 - 1:26 PM

The Indy Star's Zak Keefer believes Andrew Luck (shoulder) will miss Week 1 "barring a somewhat-miraculous turn of events."

With just 13 days left until the season opener and even fewer practices, Luck has still not been activated off the PUP. Even if that happens later this week, the quarterback has not practiced with the team since last season, and it would be a big ask for him to get ready for a regular season game in likely just two or three practices. The safe money is on Luck missing at least one game, and it could certainly be more. Owners who drafted Luck need to find someone to bridge the gap early in the season. Carson Palmer is an excellent option.
Aug 28 - 9:47 AM

Appearing on Mike Clay's Sirius XM Fantasy show, ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells said the "odds are against" Andrew Luck playing in Week 1 against the Rams.

Most Colts beat writers seem to agree that Week 1 is no longer realistic for Luck, and several national reporters have suggested Luck's absence could last longer than that. In start-one-quarterback leagues where the position is so replaceable, Luck simply isn't worth drafting before the double-digit rounds. He should not be ranked among this year's top-eight fantasy signal callers.
Aug 24 - 6:54 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said there's still no "timeline" for Andrew Luck's (shoulder) return.

Per Stephen Holder of the Indy Star, the Colts have just two practices next week and four the week after before heading off to Los Angeles for Week 1 against the Rams. That means that even if Luck is activated off PUP in the next week, he'll have just six practices to shake off the rust before the regular season gets underway. Simply put, Luck is running out of time. Mike Chapell of IndySportsCentral "doubts" Luck will be ready for Week 1 while suggesting Week 3 against Cleveland as a more realistic timeframe. None of this comes as good news for fantasy owners invested in Luck, T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief or Jack Doyle.
Aug 22 - 2:43 PM

Colts owner Jim Irsay acknowledged Sunday that Andrew Luck's (shoulder) Week 1 availability is in question.

Irsay still sounded optimistic overall, acknowledging he couldn't "unequivocally say" Luck will be ready for Week 1 but promising Luck will be back "around" the start of the season. Colts beat writers have hinted that even if Luck misses Week 1 against the Rams, he could return for Week 2 against the Cardinals. The Colts may view the Rams as beatable with Scott Tolzien under center. Irsay also confirmed Sunday that Luck has indeed resumed throwing.
Aug 13 - 5:05 PM

During Sunday's telecast of the Colts' preseason opener, GM Chris Ballard said Andrew Luck's arm is stronger following shoulder surgery.

This is a strong indication that Luck has resumed throwing. The objective of Luck's January surgery was to repair damage in his throwing arm, and it sounds like Ballard is convinced the operation did what it was designed to do. Longtime Colts beat reporter Mike Chappell expects Luck to start Week 1 against the Rams, and thinks Luck will return in Week 2 against Arizona "at worst."
