Luck completed all eight of his pass attempts for 69 yards, with two carries for another 12 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.
Luck brought the Colts into field-goal range on both of his drives, but the second ended on a fumble by TE Dwayne Allen. With T.Y. Hilton (hamstring) held out as a precaution, Luck honed in on Donte Moncrief and Philip Dorsett, the other two members of what should be a dangerous wide receiver trio. Of course, skill-position talent has never been the problem during Luck's tenure, and the team finally addressed its perennially weak offensive line.

It sounds like Luck could get more playing time in the preseason than in the past as he wants to knock off some rust after missing the final seven games last year due to injury. However, it's not clear if he'll play Sunday.
