Colts' Andrew Luck reportedly expected to begin practicing this week

Colts' Andrew Luck reportedly expected to begin practicing this week”

The Indianapolis Colts have yet to win a game thus far in 2017 and have been forced to trudge on without starting quarterback Andrew Luck under center.

ESPN reported Sunday that sources say the Colts quarterback "is expected to begin practicing as early as this week".

"Of course, this has been shrouded in mystery all during the season, but I am told there is a light at the end of the tunnel for the Indianapolis Colts and Andrew Luck", Rapoport said Sunday morning on NFL Network. Had Luck not planned to play until after Week 6, Indianapolis could have kept him on the PUP list and had an extra roster spot. He was on the physically unable to perform list for training camp but was not placed on the reserve/PUP list to start the regular season; that move would have meant Luck couldn't start practicing until Week 6.

A reasonable timeline would presumably require Luck to practice for at least two full weeks before being close to 100% ready for game time action, and the Colts have preached a long-term approach in regards to their franchise player. As a result, the struggling AFC South franchise now sits at a winless 0-2 on the season, thanks to losses to both the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals.

Even if he is not quite ready by Week 6, Luck seems sure to play at some point fairly soon after that.

The 28-year-old signal caller in Luck was originally selected by the Colts with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Stanford.
