Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Browns, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.
On Sunday morning, FOX's Jay Glazer relayed that Luck remains behind schedule and will miss 3-4 more weeks, so head coach Chuck Pagano's announcement Monday was expected. Because he's unable to make all the throws he must make before taking part in practice, Luck will yield quarterback duties to Jacoby Brissett.
Luck (shoulder) still isn't able to make all the throws he needs to do before participating in practice, and probably will miss another three-to-four weeks, Fox's Jay Glazer reported on their Sunday pregame show.
This falls in line with other reports describing Luck's lack of progress. Be prepared to see plenty of Jacoby Brissett and Scott Tolzien over the next few weeks.
Luck (shoulder) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Arizona and it's not certain if he'll practice this week, head coach Chuck Pagano told Mike Chappell of of CBS 4 News Indianapolis.
Luck will likely need a week or more of practice before he plays in a game, so it seems like his return won't be for a few weeks unless he surprisingly returns to practice this week. Pagano was uncertain whether Scott Tolzien or Jacoby Brissett would start this week after Tolzien struggled in the season-opening loss to the Rams.
Luck (shoulder) is without a timetable for returning to practice and appears to be several weeks away from being considered for a return to the Colts' gameday roster, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.
According to sources close to Luck, the quarterback has nearly completed a program to strengthen his throwing shoulder and could return to practice "sooner rather than later," but the Colts aren't willing to put a definitive timeline on when that might happen. As a result of the multiple hurdles he still has to clear before receiving the green light to play in games -- among which is said to include at least a full week of practice time, per La Canfora -- Luck looks more likely than not to miss all three of the Colts' September contests, if not further action beyond that. On a more positive note, sources have said that Luck hasn't experienced any setbacks in his rehab, and the Colts are simply having the quarterback proceed slowly through the recovery process due to his long-term value to the franchise. In the meantime, the Colts will turn to journeyman Scott Tolzien as their starting quarterback for the Week 1 matchup with the Rams, with the newly acquired Jacoby Brissett acting as Tolzien's backup.
Luck (shoulder) did not practice Friday or any time this week, head coach Chuck Pagano confirmed to Kevin Bowen of 1070 am Indianapolis. He's been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Rams.
Luck has yet to practice this year after surgery to repair a slightly torn labrum in his throwing shoulder in January. He may need more than one week of practice before he's ready to return, so his lack of participation this week lowers the odds he'll return for Week 2.
