Colts hopeful that Andrew Luck can return in Week 15 against Texans

Andrew Luck is progressing well from his injuries and the Colts feel good about his ability to play in the regular season, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Luck is most likely to have a realistic opportunity to play in Week 15, given how he is coming along, though Week 16 would be more probable. The Colts play the Texans in Week 15 and travel to play the Dolphins in Miami in Week 16.

Getting Luck back for the Week 15 game against Houston would be ideal, but the Colts are taking the long-view with their franchise QB. Indy beat Houston on the road with backup Matt Hasselbeck already and wants to be certain about Luck before he plays again, which is similar to the approach they took with his earlier injury.

Coach Chuck Pagano has been adamant that Luck is his starting quarterback when he is cleared to return.
