Chuck Pagano says Andrew Luck may return to Colts practice this week
While Luck could return to the practice field this week, there's still no timetable on when he'll start
The Colts have floundered without Andrew Luck thus far, going 1-2, with their lone win coming against the Browns on Sunday. However, they still find themselves only a game back in the AFC South with time to right the ship.
