QB Andrew Luck will finally make his return to Indianapolis Colts practice

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is set to make his return to the practice field.

Luck will be gradually worked back into practice as the Colts get ready for their Week 5 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.

“We’ll slowly start working him back into practice this week,” Colts general manager Chris Ballard said, via CBS 4’s Mike Chappell.

“We’ll see how much he gets.

“But we’ve got a plan in place to where we want him to start getting him reps and then, in time, as we can get him incorporated back into team work and all that, we’ll get him back on the field.”

Luck was expected to be ready for Week 1 after offseason surgery on his throwing shoulder, but that ended up not being the case. He is not on the PUP list, but October was the earliest that he could return to the field.

There is still no timetable for when Luck will be able to resume his duties at the Colts starting quarterback, and there should be no rush.

At 1-3, the Colts are far from out of the race for andAFC South championship, but it is unlikely that they will win it. He will probably start at some point for the Colts this season, but they should only do it in a way that gives him the best chance to be as strong physically as he was before the injury.
