Colts' Andrew Luck: Expects to play Week 1

Although Tuesday marked the first time Luck (shoulder) threw a football in public, he indicated after practice that he had been throwing a football for the last two weeks, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports. He also said after practice that he will "absolutely" play in Week 1 against the Bengals, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.

If what Luck says is true, it's an encouraging sign his arm has held up well over the past couple weeks. He still has a ways to go in his rehab, but a return to the public eye Tuesday at least provides some encouragement that he could be ready to start at some point in 2018. The 28-year-old believes Week 1 isn't out of the question, and Jim Irsay's comment indicating he will have no limitations to begin training camp echoes that notion. However, potential fantasy owners should track Luck's progress during training camp for a better indication of whether that will come to fruition.
