With Matt Hasselbeck bothered by an illness, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) took most of the first-team snaps at Tuesday's practice, according to the team's website.
Between Hasselbeck's illness and the fact that it was a light practice, Luck's dominance of the snaps doesn't carry much significance.
Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Luck is trending in the right direction, but Pagano also suggested that the team won't push things. Even after Monday's optimistic reports, Luck may be headed for a game-time decision Thursday against the Houston Texans .
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) was limited in Monday's practice, and head coach Chuck Pagano considers the quarterback "day-to-day," Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports. Pagano also said, "He looked good. Trending in right direction. A lot better than he was Saturday."
Pagano relayed further that Luck is dealing with a "sore shoulder" without delving into the specifics of what's causing the discomfort and issues with arm strength. Luck himself is aiming to take the field Thursday in Houston, but his activity level should be monitored by the day to determined if that will come to fruition.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is expected to start Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars in place of Andrew Luck , who is unable to play due to his shoulder injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Luck reportedly has no structural damage in his shoulder, but it's simply not healthy enough to give it a go Sunday. It's a promising matchup for Hasselbeck, who took first-team snaps during practice this week as the Jaguars come in allowing the seventh-most passing yards per game this season.
