Colts' Andrew Luck: Week 1 decision up in air

Coach Frank Reich would like to make a decision on the Week 1 starting quarterback between Luck (calf/ankle) and Jacoby Brissett after the Colts' third preseason game Aug. 24 against the Bears, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Because general manager Chris Ballard is of the belief that Luck won't make an appearance during the exhibition slate, the veteran signal-caller will likely have to return to practice and make significant progress to gain the Colts' confidence. Previously diagnosed with a strained left calf, Luck is also tending to a high-ankle issue, a combination that has allowed for just three training-camp practices to date. While Luck focuses on rehabilitation, the Colts will continue to give Brissett first-team reps in the event he's needed to play once the regular season begins.
