Andrew Luck (shoulder) suffers setback, won't practice for Colts this week

19 October 2017

We'll continue to rehab. While Ballard wouldn't say how long the shutdown will last - "I don't think it'll be long..." "It's the soreness that we're dealing with right now that we've got to get through". Every guy is different.

When he's back throwing, Ballard said Luck will be able to pick up where he left off in terms of his practice plan. "His long-term success is at what we're looking for".

"No, not at this time", Ballard said about Luck potentially going on IR.

One question Ballard refused to answer was whether or not Luck would actually end up playing this season. It seemed like a risk that wasn't worth taking considering Luck's checkered injury history over the past two to three seasons.

After undergoing surgery for a partially torn labrum in January, Luck missed all of the Colts' offseason workouts, all of training camp and the entire preseason.

Ballard said the velocity has been up on Luck's throws, and that his rehab has been going well.

It was noted last week that Luck was making progress in his return. "We're going to try to shut him and calm it down right now". He's now again out indefinitely, leaving Jacoby Brissett the starter for the next few weeks and further dropping the floors of T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Scott Tolzien started the season opener.
