ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Colts "still expect" Andrew Luck (shoulder) to start Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Texans.
The Colts re-signed QB Josh Johnson earlier Wednesday. He served as the Colts' backup to Matt Hasselbeck in Week 4, and speculation began to run rampant again that Luck wasn't going to be ready for tomorrow night's start. Hasselbeck has missed practice being sick this week. Johnson is just depth. The Colts will conduct practice today and likely label Luck as questionable or probable for Week 5. Most indications, however, are that he'll be under center against Houston. Oct 7 - 11:28 AM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) says he's "preparing to start" Thursday's game against the Texans.

Luck added that's he not just preparing, but expects to play. It's encouraging, but there was optimism about his Week 4 status, as well. The reports on his Thursday preparation have been mixed. The Colts might ultimately decide their franchise player could use another 10 days of rest, saving him for the rest of the regular season while not further risking his health. His status will be updated in the next 24 hours, likely multiple times.
Oct 6 - 4:40 PM

Updating an earlier report, Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited at Tuesday's practice and will likely be a game-time decision against the Texans in Week 5.

Luck wasn't seen at the 15-minute portion of practice open to the media but coach Chuck Pagano said he took most of the Colts' first-team reps. Matt Hasselbeck wasn't available Tuesday because of an illness. Luck seems to be headed in the right direction after barely throwing last week. The Colts' decision to release Josh Johnson bodes well for Luck's Week 5 status.
Oct 6 - 3:35 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) was not seen at the portion of practice open to the media on Tuesday.

Neither was Matt Hasselbeck. It's suspected the two were warming up indoors. Luck expects to play Thursday against the Texans but it would be nice to see him get through a full practice first. Hasselbeck performed admirably in Luck's absence last week, but that was against a subpar Jacksonville squad.
Oct 6 - 3:16 PM

The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer feels it's "pretty clear" that Andrew Luck (shoulder) will start Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Texans.

Coach Chuck Pagano said Luck "looked good" on Monday and is "trending in the right direction." Pagano also shot down a report that Luck is dealing with a slightly separated shoulder, only saying his quarterback has a "sore shoulder." Matt Hasselbeck, who started Sunday, said he "doesn't expect to play this week." Signs point to Luck only missing one game and getting the nod against Houston.
Oct 5 - 7:04 PM

Updating a previous item, Andrew Luck (shoulder) was seen "flipping a couple of screen passes" at Colts practice Monday.

For a player dealing with a subluxed shoulder, any progress such as this can only be taken as a positive. Still, Luck's throws were described as "lobs," and Colts reporters didn't come away from Monday's session with any meaningful takeaways. It's believed Luck has no structural damage, and therefore no labral tear. His status for Thursday night's game remains unclear.
Oct 5 - 5:17 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) made an appearance at Colts practice on Monday, but was only seen "stretching and jogging."

He was later spotted executing handoffs to the Colts' running backs. It would be a true development were Luck seen throwing. The good news is Luck at least participated in some capacity with his teammates. The bad news is no light has yet been shed on his availability for Thursday night's game.
Oct 5 - 4:59 PM

Citing a source close to the situation, Indy Sports Central reports Andrew Luck is dealing with a partially separated right (throwing) shoulder.

The partial separation is known as a "subluxed" shoulder in medical terms. Reporter Chris Hagan says the Colts "are concerned about Luck's labrum," and Luck has sent his MRI to at least three different doctors to view the injury. "The biggest concerns about Luck at the moment are pain and arm strength," per the report, and Luck's status for Thursday night's game against the Texans "is in doubt." While this situation is very much fluid, it currently looks like Matt Hasselbeck may have to make another start.
Oct 5 - 4:25 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Colts "plan" for Andrew Luck (shoulder) to play Thursday night.

Rapoport confirmed the shoulder is not viewed as a long-term injury. Coach Chuck Pagano said Luck was "trending in the right direction" last week, but he "didn't have the arm strength" necessary on Sunday morning. The Colts may be planning for Luck to play now, but this injury appears to be a day-to-day situation. Luck's status will be updated throughout the week.
Oct 5 - 9:57 AM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the team will "take it day-to-day" with Andrew Luck (shoulder).

"He was trending in the right direction throughout the course of the week," Pagano said. "We were going to evaluate him, see how he felt. Just wasn’t ready." The fact that the decision came down to Sunday is good news for Luck's ability to play Thursday night, but nothing can be taken for granted. Pagano said Luck will work out Monday to see how far he is in his recovery.
Oct 4 - 9:00 PM

Andrew Luck (shoulder) is inactive for Week 4 against the Jaguars.

Luck didn't take any practice reps this week and wasn't cleared after a private throwing session on Saturday. It sounds like there's a good chance he'll only miss one game. Matt Hasselbeck will make his first start since 2012.
Oct 4 - 11:41 AM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Andrew Luck (shoulder) is out for Week 4 against the Jaguars.

It's a bold move but one that might protect Luck's longterm future. Luck barely practiced this week and what he showed during his private workout on Saturday must not have been enough to convince the coaching staff to give him the green light. Ancient Matt Hasselbeck isn't an ideal backup, but he does have a cushy matchup waiting for him against the lowly Jaguars. Receivers T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson and Donte Moncrief all become less appealing options with Luck out of the lineup. The Colts will likely attempt to lean more than usual on Frank Gore, who is averaging 4.70 yards per carry through three weeks.
Oct 4 - 8:57 AM

Tests on Andrew Luck's injured shoulder showed no structural damage.

Luck reportedly had a private throwing session with coaches on Saturday. He hadn't practiced most of the week so this has to be taken as a good sign. It sounds like Luck is pushing hard to play Sunday against the Jaguars. Whether the coaches give him the go ahead remains to be seen. Indy's backup quarterback is 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck.
Oct 4 - 8:04 AM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports there's "still some very real concern" about Andrew Luck's (questionable, shoulder) status for Sunday.

Luck is looking like a full-blown game-time decision. Coach Chuck Pagano said he expects Luck to play, but the Colts roster moves suggest he could sit. Luck's status should be known early Sunday. Matt Hasselbeck would start if Luck is held out.
Oct 3 - 7:11 PM

Per the Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer, Andrew Luck (shoulder, questionable) "wasn't wearing a sling/cast/brace or anything" on his throwing arm at the Colts' practice facility on Friday.

Keefer also confirms Luck participated in Friday's practice, albeit in a limited manner. Luck shredded the Jaguars for five touchdown passes and no interceptions in last year's two meetings. With coach Chuck Pagano all but promising Luck will start on Sunday, he should be locked into fantasy lineups.
