Calf injury keeps Andrew Luck out of practice on Tuesday

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was “ready to roll” for training camp. Until he wasn’t.

Zak Keefer of TheAthletic.com reports that Luck’s lingering calf problem will keep him out of practice on Tuesday. It will be the second practice missed by Luck in only four days. He participated in only individual drills during the first practice of training camp.

Coach Frank Reich has said that the team is being cautious with Luck, citing the Kevin Durant injury as a reason for doing so.

Still, at some point Luck has to get ready for the season. That’s the balance the team needs to strike, both during training camp and, if the issue lingers, during the regular season.

  1. They are fine…. they got Jacoby to carry the team while their injury prone starter heals up yet again

  2. I’ll put my money that the Colts were not being truthful on Lucks injuries throughout the years and now its catching up to him and he is having a hard time staying healthy just like Peyton Manning but Peyton Manning started breaking down towards the end of his career Luck I feel he is just getting started.I hope I’m wrong want to see Luck host a Lombardi one day

  3. If the Colts were smaht, which they are not. They should find some buyer and get rid of him
    while he has some value.
    Then they could hang a banner. Traded this bust!

    Karma ,since the Colts were not punished for having under inflated footballs , even though they were under inflated because cold weather causes footballs to lose pressure

    No it doesn’t. But taking them into a locked room and sticking a needle in them does.

  5. It won’t REALLY be serious until the Colts announce he’ll be back any day now, at which point you’ll know he’s out for the season.

  6. Can we keep it 100 here in saying that to this point Andre Luck has had as much success As Robert Griffin 111. Andre luck will be turning 30yrs old in 2 Months, Now let that just swim around your head for a good minute. We are heading in close to a DECADE now since Peyton Manning left the Colts and what has the Colts done?.

  7. Here we go! This guy is a walking injury. They ruined him with their arrogance and lack of good drafting on the OL in particular.

    Pats are foaming at the mouth…

  8. The $12 million dollar per year company is being neglected. Get to work.

  9. No it doesn’t. But taking them into a locked room and sticking a needle in them does

    Wait, so now the Pats ball guy deflated both the Pats and the Colts footballs? In order to give both teams a supposed competitive advantage? If you don’t believe in science, how then were the Colts balls also below the regulated PSI?

    Your statement is not exactly correct. Cold weather does not necessarily cause a pressure change.

    Based on the ideal gas law (which, as a chemical engineering student, I knew about PV=nRT long before this case was brought against NE), a CHANGE in temperature will result in a change in the pressure of a gas in a certain space (at constant volume).

    What that means is, if the footballs were inflated inside at a “normal” temperature (say, 70°F), then were taken outside into a cold temperature (say, 30°F), there would be a drop in the pressure of the air inside the football that coincides with the drop in temperature (because it is at constant volume – i.e., the size of the football is not changing).

    However, if the footballs were inflated outside in 30°F conditions, they will stay at the pressure they were inflated to, as long as they remained in those conditions (assuming no other conditions changed), because they are remaining at the same temperature.
