Pagano: Andrew Luck “making great progress”

The Colts are going to have a few welcome returns in practice this week.

Not only will quarterback Andrew Luck begin practicing this week as he returns from shoulder surgery, but they are close to getting center Ryan Kelly back on the field.

Kelly did some work in practice last week as he comes back from foot surgery, but the hope is that he’ll be available this week against the 49ers. That helps, since his replacement, rookie Deyshawn Bond, was lost for the season to a torn quadriceps muscle.

But all eyes will be on Luck, as he does his first work with the group since his January surgery.

He’s making great progress,” Pagano said of Luck during his radio show, via Scott Horner of the Indianapolis Star. “Everybody has to understand he’s not going to come back out and take all the first-team snaps. We have to integrate him back into practice. It’d be great just to have him out there with his teammates.”

They’re expected to start Jacoby Brissett again, for the fourth straight week after he replaced Scott Tolzien.

  1. Question. Why hasn’t he been out there with his teammates even though he’s not practicing? The rules don’t prevent it. Still more questions than answers from this organization that has always struggled with the truth.

  2. Does it really matter? The Colts are a bottom of the Well team with or without him. They would be best served to keep him out for the season with the OL they have. Give the poor guy, well not so poor guy, an opportunity to play next year.

    How’d the Bears do last week? I missed it.

  5. The Colts have been lying about Luck’s health for 6 months now. Goodell needs to investigate.

  6. Jacoby Brissett made out big in the trade from New England. He was never going to get any serious playing time there unless both Brady and Jimmy G. went down, and even if they did Brissett would be protected by New England’s horrible offensive line. This trade should guarantee Brissett another deal after his rookie contract expires. Maybe not a big deal, but more time in the NFL for sure.

  7. I have never claimed my Bears are anything other than what they are. Terrible. Your team, on the other hand, keeps babbling about “multiple Lombardi’s” and other delusional things. It’s an illness that starts with the owner and infects the rest of the team like an open sore.

  8. Keep him out, get a top 3 pick, trade for multiple picks for one of these teams that are salivating for a QB ala jets, bills, dolphins, niners, cardinals.

    Best owner in the NFL.
    Take it like a man, whiner.

  10. That’s what those folks on “My 600 Pound Life” always say, and you know what — they’re still fat.
