Colts coach Chuck Pagano’s standard line on injured quarterback Andrew Luck has been that he had “supreme confidence” that Luck would be able to play that particular week.
For two games running, of course, he hasn’t.
But if we’re to take Pagano at his word this time, things are different.
According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, Pagano told reporters that Luck as a full participant in practice today, a practice which was not open to the media.
Perhaps along with today’s latest release of Josh Johnson, it’s a sign Luck will be fine to play the Patriots Sunday night after taking two games off with a sore shoulder. Or, perhaps they’ll just put Johnson back through the revolving door for another spin or two between now and then to keep the Patriots and everyone guessing.
