Andrew Luck exits injury report

AP

After Saints quarterback Drew Brees missed a game with a shoulder injury and then returned to action for the next game, he immediately exited the injury report the following week. For Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, a similar formula applies.

Luck missed Week Four against the Jaguars and Week Five against the Texans, before playing on Sunday night despite being listed as questionable, with a shoulder injury. Now, three days after playing an entire game, there was no mention of Luck on the injury report.

It means he’s completely healthy, just five days after he was a 50-50 shot at playing. Which is impressive, given that he, you know, played an entire game during that five-day window.

Not practicing for the Colts on Wednesday for injury reasons were safety Mike Adams (hamstring), linebacker Jerrell Freeman (groin), and safety Clayton Geathers (knee). Cornerback Vontae Davis, receiver Andre Johnson, and linebacker Robert Mathis each got the day off.

Brees and the Saints face Luck and the Colts on Sunday. The last time these teams played, before Luck was drafted, the Saints won 62-7.

  1. I’ve had a slightly separated shoulder. They take about 3 weeks to heal, and then you’re as good as new. Same deal with Luck.

  2. So you are implying that they lied on the injury report last week? Wouldn’t that be cheating and risk the integrity of the nfl. Just wondering.

    But you have access to better doctors then Luck!!!

  4. Who cares about any of these manufactured ” elite” quarterbacks.
    Luck
    Rodgers
    Mannings
    Brees
    Il take Brady, Flacco, Roethlisberger, Wilson and Cutler before ANY of those media darlings.

  5. My guess is that Luck was playing so poorly through the first few weeks of the season that the Colts wanted to sit him for a game. The best way to do that without causing to much of a media stir would be to put him on the injury report. He played well last week, so it looks like he heard the message loud and clear.
