Still no clues as to when Andrew Luck will be practicing, playing

AP

As the Colts approach their first preseason game, and roughly a month before the first game that counts, quarterback Andrew Luck continues to not be practicing due to his surgically-repaired shoulder. And no one knows where he stands.

Kevin Bowen of Colts.com provided the following update in a daily email from training camp: “Do not read much into Andrew Luck being present at the last two Colts’ practices. Chuck Pagano threw up the red flag on if Luck’s recent practice attendance means his return to participate is definitely coming soon. The Colts enter Week Two of Training Camp with Luck still on the PUP list. Until Saturday’s practice, Luck had been isolated from the media for the bulk of camp. Where is Luck in his throwing rehab schedule? Will his return to practice come in the next week or so? Those questions remain unanswered as the team’s regular season opener is less than five weeks away.”

While the Colts are surely keeping their cards close to the vest, the lack of clarity regarding his status is discouraging, especially since he continues to miss key drills and other reps aimed at getting him ready for the season. Even if he’s healthy enough to play come Week One, Luck may not be as ready as he needs to be. Which will make it harder for him to be effective and to remain healthy throughout a season in which the AFC South will be as wide open as it’s ever been.

  1. Any clue as to when the NFL will wrap up the investigation into the Colts failing to report Luck’s broken ribs and lacerated kidney?

  2. Scott Tolzien is better than most people think. I remember the dreadful feeling when Drew Bledsoe went down and the Patriots were forced to go with some kid named Tom Brady. A 6th round draft pick. I remember when Trent Green was injured and the Rams had to turn to undrafted free agent Kurt Warner. We all remember how the Cowboys’ season was doomed last year when Tony Romo was hurt, then the backup couldn’t go, so they had to settle for rookie 4th round pick Dak Prescott. Tolzien is another Drew Brees. Andrew Luck might never step foot on the field again, but it’s not for the reasons you think.

  3. Patriots fans can’t be bothered to hate The Colts any more. I just feel sorry for them and their fans, they’ve become the Midwest Jets. No QB, no Coach, worthless owner, despondent fan base. The glory days ended that chilly, rainy night they tried to smear their once upon a time rivals with a bunch of lies

  4. And yet again the epic loser nhpats is the first to comment on a Colts article. You are pathetic

  5. Titans are coming on & the Texans are a QB away from being legit (but already better than Colts)…..Colts can enjoy watching the playoffs from home while Luck wastes away in Indy…..must be quite DEFLATING to realize that!!!

  6. Whenever Andrew shows up on screen this year, it should cue the theme song to “Twin Peaks”. Nixon was more of an open book. Soon he won’t be getting better, but he’ll be able to levitate.

    They closed that one and are moving on to why Brady didn’t go into the concussion protocol.

    So, a bit like Bradys unreported concussions then?

  9. I like Andrew Luck. Seems like a decent guy. However the Colts have done him a disservice by not building an O Line to protect him better. Sadly, he’s paid the price. Yet, he got paid for basically mediocre numbers at best.

  10. The deflategate liars are the pats. No one outside of new england cares about the pats anyway. Their mantra is cheat, cheat and then cheat some more just to make sure the bases are covered.

  11. Richard Sherman was going to investigate the Andrew Luck and Tom Brady alleged injuries, but he has been slow getting around for some reason. It’s almost like he is limping, IDK.

  12. Gee Wiz. With the Colts, the Baltimore Malletts and the Miami Cutlers, the Jets are going to have some serious competition in the Suck for Rosen or Darnold contest.

  13. Luck has told friends he won’t report until he’s “better than Russell Wilson.”

    Which means he’s pretty much retired.

  14. Better to have No Luck than Andrew Luck…. most overhyped player in NFL. Colts will be just as brutal with him or without him.

    As noted above, Suck 4 Luck has now truly become Suck With Luck

    Brutal, so soft his parents should have named him Downey…

  15. If by mid-season the Colts are hopelessly behind the Texans and improved Titans, expect NFL’s own drug-tester-as-owner Irsay to tank the team, clean house to ‘beat’ the Jets to the bottom and No. 1 pick. Luck is released from his jail there in Flyover Indy.

  16. Not a colts or even an AFC guy, but can’t understand the hate for Luck. I don’t care how good a QB is, when you have no OLine protection, you won’t play well. Yes, even Brady. Go back and look at games where Brady starts getting hit consistently; even he starts playing like garbage. Blame the entire team, or more importantly, the front office–not just the QB.

    No, nothing like anything having to do with Tom Brady.

    The Colts medical staff diagnosed Luck with injuries that were not reported by the Colts. That broke NFL rules. Tom Brady may or may not have self-diagnosed himself with a concussion, and, if so, did not report that situation to the Patriots medical or training staff. That broke no NFL rules. IMO that was stupid of Brady if it did happen, but no NFL rules were broken.

    You are welcome.

    Irony, dripping. Or is that hypocrisy?

    Yeah, known confirmed medical conditions vs a wife’s off the cuff comment. Exactly the same

    Actually quite the opposite. Brady, if he had a concussion, continued to play and dominate. Luck, tried to play and stunk badly due to his unreported injuries.

  23. “So, a bit like Bradys unreported concussions then?”

    No not at all. Brady never showed any of the visible signs of concussion and if he did have one he never told the team, which he is not required to do under the CBA.

    Luck had broken bones and a lacerated kidney which the Colts were well aware of and hid from the injury report, a clear violation. But since they’re one of Goodell’s ‘super six” of the Giants, Jets, Colts, Steelers, Ravens and Donks he turned a blind eye to the Colts cheating.

    When they wrap up their report into why Tom Brady didn’t report multiple concussions, as per his wife and his continued and adamant silence on the matter.

    Right. The Colts have won 49 games since he was drafted. Let’s see how long Mariota can stay healthy.

  26. Colts just haven’t been the same since the night of the 2014 AFC Championship game when they were caught with under inflated footballs. Now that the league is checking air pressure in footballs it’s much harder for them to be a good team, that much is proven.

    0 playoff appearances since then
    0 records of over .500 since then

    #Interesting
    #IWonderWhy

  27. The Colts are such poor losers that they actually invented the category of “AFC Finalist” just to hang a banner for losing 45-7 in the AFC Championship game. You’d think other teams would try to stop them at this point since they seem to loving enraging the Patriot Kraaken and releasing it on everyone else.

  28. It’s not surprising Colts fans don’t understand the difference between a concerned supermodel wife saying her husband had concussions( which were NEVER diagnosed by a Medical Doctor), and a player with a lacerated kidney & broken ribs, who was diagnosed by a physician. After all the Colts also had under regulation footballs but were never punished, unlike the Pats.
    Roger that!

    I have perused message boards from the Super Bowl around the nation, and I think you are incorrect when you say “no one outside New england cares about the Pats”. There was an almost universal circle jerk around the non-New England part of the nation (even amongst you Colts fans that just don’t “care” about the Pats) when the Falcons went up 21-0, 28-3, when Gostkowski missed the extra point, when the on-side kick failed, when the Falcons held them to a Field Goal, when Julio Jones made that catch and and and well that was it, everybody went limp after that
