Colts GM: Andrew Luck will slowly work way into practice this week

Colts GM: Andrew Luck will slowly work way into practice this week”

Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Monday night that quarterback Andrew Luck will return to practice this week.

Luck has not practiced with the team since undergoing surgery in January on his throwing shoulder.

"Andrew's doing good, he's doing really good, " Ballard said.

Even after the Colts played their final preseason game, owner Jim Irsay refused to rule out the possibility of Luck starting in Week 1. Luck began training camp on the physically unable to perform list, but he was taken off PUP prior to the start of the regular season.

The Colts are 1-3 this season with Scott Tolzien and Jacoby Brissett at quarterback, but neither has lived up to the Pro Bowl standard set by Luck, who threw for 4,240 yards with 31 touchdowns last season. Brissett will make his fourth consecutive start Sunday when the Colts host the San Francisco 49ers in Lucas Oil Stadium. We'll slowly start working him back into practice this week.

Pagano also noted that rookie center Deyshawn Bond has "quite a significant quad injury" and was hopeful they could get Ryan Kelly back from injury. Luck will likely need two or three weeks of concentrated practice before he will be ready to take snaps under center on a game day. It's more likely that the 28-year-old will first see the field on October 22, in a home game against the Jaguars, or on October 29, at the Bengals. "We have to integrate him back into practice". Like anybody else we are going to bring him along carefully.

"Again, it'd be great just to have him out there with his teammates, red jersey on, working again", Pagano concluded.
