Andrew Luck still several weeks away from being game-ready

Andrew Luck still several weeks away from being game-ready”

The Colts are avoiding putting any pressure on the franchise player, and do not even have a timetable for a full return even to the practice field, though I am told a projected debut at practice is anticipated "sooner rather than later". Also, Luck has not experienced any setbacks, and the delay is merely a result of Indianapolis being incredibly cautious with its signal-caller. The last thing it needs is its three-time Pro Bowler to miss significant time, especially since his playing just seven games in 2015 was the primary reason its streak of three straight postseason appearances came to an end.

Luck had surgery in January to fix a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. He still put up solid numbers (4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns), but it didn't help that he was sacked 41 times, which tied for a career high.

The Washington, D.C. native, who played his college football at Stanford University, was originally selected by the Colts with the first overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Indianapolis is coming off two straight 8-8 campaigns and hasn't made the playoffs since the 2014 season.

Scott Tolzien will start on Sunday against the Rams, and it appears that he'll start until Luck is ready to return.
