Coach Frank Reich said Tuesday that Luck (calf) will not practice this week, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
It appears Luck will be back in time for training camp, as Reich reiterated there is no real concern surrounding the health of the quarterback's calf. The Colts merely are being cautious during their offseason program.
Luck (calf) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan Indianapolis reports.
At this point, it seems pretty safe to say that Luck will be held out of all of OTAs for the third straight season. The calf strain the quarterback is resting doesn't seem to be a huge concern for the Colts, and they should have another update on his health once the team begins its mandatory minicamp next week.
Luck (calf) isn't practicing Wednesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.
A calf strain has kept Luck off the field for OTAs, allowing Jacoby Brissett to work with the first-team offense. As long as it doesn't involve his throwing shoulder, a minor injury at this time of year shouldn't really matter for Luck. Training camp will provide plenty of opportunities for Luck to work with new targets Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell.
Luck did not participate in OTAs on Tuesday due to a calf strain, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports.
There appear to be no concerns coming from the Colts regarding their starting quarterback's health, as Luck has felt healthy all offseason, and he said last month it's been the best of his career. Indianapolis is likely just taking extra precautions with Luck this early in the offseason.
Luck said the 2019 offseason has been the best of his professional career, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.
Following three consecutive offseasons devoted to rehab/recovery for his right shoulder, Luck was finally able to step away from his job and took the opportunity to get married in March. He's now back alongside his teammates for the start of the offseason program, with a plan that doesn't include any throwing during the initial phase of workouts. The Colts haven't made much noise with free-agent additions on offense, but they already have a strong foundation and still have a ton of cap space to supplement their roster before Week 1. Luck and coach Frank Reich enter their second offseason working together, with optimism for improved pass-catching depth if wideout Devin Funchess can bounce back from a disappointing 2018 campaign in Carolina and tight end Jack Doyle (hip) can get healthy. Indianapolis also has the makings of an elite offensive line, led by left tackle Anthony Castonzo, left guard Quenton Nelson and center Ryan Kelly.
Luck completed 67 percent of his passes for 4,592 yards with 39 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 2018. He gained 148 rushing yards and no touchdowns on 46 carries.
Fourteen and a half months ago, Luck's future in football was in question due to unrelenting problems with his throwing shoulder. A gradual and patient recovery process has made the quarterback as good as new again, as Luck -- making his return after missing the entire 2017 season -- turned in arguably the best season of his career while leading a slow-starting Colts squad to the playoffs for the first time in four years. The performance earned him PFWA's 2018 NFL Comeback Player of the Year honors, according to Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site, and positions Luck as one of the most desirable quarterbacks in fantasy ahead of the 2019 campaign. Luck's standing only figures to improve depending on what Indianapolis does with its league-leading boatload of cap space.
Luck completed 19 of 36 passes for 203 yards and one touchdown while rushing twice for 17 yards in Saturday's 31-13 playoff loss to the Chiefs.
The Colts didn't manage any offensive points until the fourth quarter -- though Adam Vinatieri did miss a 23-yard field goal -- as Luck went 7-of-12 for 76 yards in the first half. The usually porous Chiefs defense put on its best display of the season, as they were able to apply pressure and disrupt Luck's passing lanes early on. The 5.6 yards per attempt represent his worst output since being shut out at Jacksonville in Week 13.
Luck completed 19 of 32 passes for 222 yards and had two touchdowns and one interception while rushing eight times for 29 yards in Saturday's win over the Texans.
The overall numbers aren't overwhelming, but Luck helped build a 21-0 lead by going 16-of-22 for 192 yards and two touchdowns in the first half. The Colts defense stymied the Texans all afternoon, allowing Luck to hand off to Marlon Mack and bleed the clock in the second half to secure the win. The veteran signal caller has a marque matchup next week against a Chiefs defense that is second worst in the NFL against the pass (273.4 YPG)
Luck completed 24 of 35 pass attempts for 285 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 33-17 win over the Titans.
Luck was in fine form when his team needed him most, finding soft spots within the Titans' zone defense with ease. The 28-year-old finishes the regular season with 4,593 passing yards and 39 touchdowns to 15 interceptions. Those excellent numbers are not surprising based on what we have seen from Luck in the past, but they are shocking based on how uncertain the health of his shoulder was heading into the season. Many owners probably got a steep discount on the top-tier QB for that reason, but that scenario is unlikely to happen again for next year's drafts. As for the rest of this season, Luck will face the Texans in the wild-card round Saturday.
Luck completed 31 of 47 passing attempts for 357 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 28-27 win over the Giants. He also rushed twice for 13 yards.
The Colts scored just one rushing touchdown in the first half, but Luck threw a short score in each of the final two quarters, including a one-yard pass to Chester Rogers with under a minute remaining to win the game. It was an important rebound for the most important week of the fantasy season after the 29-year-old threw for just 192 yards and no touchdowns in Week 15. Indianapolis will wrap up the regular season at Tennessee in Week 17.
Luck completed 16 of 27 pass attempts for 192 yards and gained 20 additional yards on six carries during Sunday's 23-0 win over the Cowboys.
Luck completed just 59 percent of his passes and averaged 7.1 yards per attempt while struggling against a solid Cowboys defense. He benefited from the stellar performances of his own defense and running game, however, which in turn merely required him to manage the offense efficiently. Luck has struggled by his lofty standards of late, posting a 2:2 TD:INT over the last three games and topping 250 yards just once in that stretch. He'll face a more favorable matchup at home against the Giants next Sunday.
Luck completed 27 of 41 passing attempts for 399 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Texans. He added 16 yards on six rushing attempts.
A week after getting shut out by Jacksonville, Luck responded with his second-best yardage total of the season on the way to a key divisional win on the road. While the 29-year-old was kept out of the end zone for a fifth consecutive quarter to open the game, he would lead three straight scoring drives in the second to give the Colts a 17-7 lead at the half. Luck returns home Week 15 for yet another tough matchup with Dallas.
Luck completed 33 of 52 passes for 248 yards and an interception in Sunday's 6-0 loss to Jacksonville. He also rushed twice for 16 yards.
Luck couldn't get anything going against a swarming Jaguars defense that looked more like last year's stellar unit than this season's mistake-prone group. He finally found a rhythm on Indianapolis' frantic final drive, but a dubious call that awarded Jacksonville a tackle in-bounds rather than stopping the clock with a few seconds left ended the game. This disappointing performance snapped an eight-game streak with at least three touchdown passes in each for Luck, and starting a new one won't be easy against the red-hot Texans in Week 14.
Luck completed 30 of 37 pass attempts for 343 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Dolphins.
Luck connected on 81 percent of his passes and spread the ball around to nine different receivers as he averaged a healthy 9.3 yards per attempt. He threw an interception on back-to-back drives just before halftime, but he connected with Eric Ebron for a pair of touchdowns and added another to Jack Doyle. Most importantly, he led his team to a come-from-behind victory thanks to a last-minute field goal. Luck has now thrown at least three touchdown passes in eight straight games and will look to keep it up next Sunday against a struggling Jaguars team.
Luck completed 23 of 29 passes for 297 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 38-10 win over the Titans.
How is that arm doing? Pretty well, it seems, as Luck javelined a 68-yard touchdown pass on a rope to speedster T.Y. Hilton midway through the second quarter, one of two touchdown passes the two connected for on the day. Luck has been dominating his competition over the past month with a 13:1 TD:INT ratio over his past four games. Also notable is the fact that Indianapolis has built some semblance of a running attack with Marlon Mack, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines, thereby taking some heat off of Luck. He'll be given a challenge next Sunday against a Miami defense ranked in the top 10 in the league in opponent passer rating (89.6).
Luck completed 21 of 29 pass attempts for 285 yards, three touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 29-26 win over the Jaguars.
Luck was sharp against one of the league's best pass defenses, completing 72 percent of his passes while connecting with eight different receivers. He threw a pair of touchdown passes to Eric Ebron and added another to Mo Alie-Cox, pushing his TD:INT to 10:1 over the last three games. Luck now has at least three touchdown passes in each of his last six games and has helped his team win three straight to get back near .500 for the season. He'll look to continue what's been a tremendous bounce-back campaign next Sunday against the Titans.
Luck completed 22 of 31 passes for 239 yards and three touchdowns while also throwing a two-point conversion in Sunday's 42-28 win over Oakland.
Indianapolis enjoyed a balanced and effective approach on offense, as Luck threw for three scores while the rushing attack produced 222 yards and two touchdowns. He may not be piling up prolific yardage totals -- averaging a respectable 273.4 per game -- but Luck has been a touchdown machine with 23 compared to eight interceptions heading into his Week 9 bye.
Luck completed 17 of 23 passes for 156 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for five yards on three carries in Sunday's 37-5 demolition of the Bills.
Luck wasn't asked to do much after helping his team race out to a 24-0 halftime lead. He tossed a trio of touchdowns in the second quarter: 17 yards to Erik Swoope, 29 yards to Marlon Mack and five yards to T.Y. Hilton. Luck fumbled out of the end zone for a safety in the third quarter, but he bounced back by hitting Hilton again from one yard out in the fourth, putting an exclamation point on his top wide receiver's return from a hamstring injury. The entire Colts offense is trending up heading into a Week 8 trip to Oakland.
Luck completed 23 of 43 passes for 301 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions during Sunday's 42-34 loss to the Jets. He added seven yards on two runs.
Luck brought the Colts within a score early in the fourth quarter with a quick two-yard flag pass to Eric Swoope. The Jets responded with three field goals and the Colts didn't strike again until it was too late. To be sure, Luck helped place Indy in a hole with two early interceptions, including a pick-six on the second offensive play of the game. Despite warts in the form of five interceptions, Luck has been hot in recent contests, with 11 touchdown passes and 1,130 yards over the past three weeks. He next takes on a middle-of-the-road Bills pass defense in Week 7.
Luck completed 38 of 59 passes for 365 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Colts' 38-24 loss to the Patriots on Thursday.
Luck matched Tom Brady pass for pass, and his final numbers were actually slightly better than the Patriots quarterback. However, that still added up to a two-touchdown defeat for the Colts, which saw New England storm back for a pair of scores in the fourth quarter after Luck had pulled Indianapolis to within 24-17 with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Erik Swoope. Luck did comfortably exceed the 300-yard mark for the second consecutive game, and his YPA was once again over 6.0 after a pair of contests where he'd checked in under that figure. Luck's longest completion was still a relatively modest 28 yards Thursday, but his 7:2 TD:INT and 829 passing yards over the last games undoubtedly has fantasy owners pleased. He'll look to stay hot against the Jets in a Week 6 battle.
