  Colts | Andrew Luck planning to retire    Sat Aug 24, 09:39 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has informed owner Jim Irsay that he intends to retire, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Absolutely unbelievable. Luck had a calf/ankle issue that has kept him from practicing this offseason. He's mentally done and now walking away from the game. The Colts offense gets downgraded here with Jacoby Brissett taking over as the starter. We could see them lean more on the rushing attack without Luck in the fold. Some truly shocking news for the NFL and Fantasy GMs tonight.

  Colts | Andrew Luck to sit out practice another week    Tue Aug 20, 02:44 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) will not participate in practice for at least another week, according to head coach Frank Reich, who noted Luck's issue is a matter of 'full-speed movement versus pain threshold.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs are nervous about this Luck injury...and for good reason. Missing another week of practice further puts his status for Week 1 in question. We'll see if Luck can actually get out there for practice during the final week of the preseason.

  Colts | Andrew Luck likely out for preseason    Tue Aug 13, 08:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (ankle) is unlikely to play in the preseason due to an ankle issue, according to general manager Chris Ballard Tuesday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: Just when you think Luck is in the clear, this ankle/calf/bone-thing comes to the forefront. Ballard said he's not ready to say the regular-season opener is in jeopardy due to the injury and Luck will continue rehabbing. Luck still has an ADP of QB4 (6.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Andrew Luck has a bone issue    Tue Aug 13, 10:08 AM

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) is dealing with a 'small bone issue,' and it's nothing to do with his Achilles', according to owner Jim Irsay.

Footballguys view: Okay, at least we have more clarity on this situation. Luck has been missing time in training camp but the team expresses no concern about him missing the start of the regular season.

  Colts | Indy remains hopeful with Andrew Luck    Fri Aug 9, 03:56 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) is still considered day-to-day, and the team remains 'confident' and 'optimistic' he will be ready in time for the regular-season opener.

Footballguys view: Luck will miss the last three team practices and we will probably not see him in the preseason. We can't be sure he'll play Week 1 until we see positive practice reports. His value should be falling at the overstocked quarterback position.

  Colts | Andrew Luck's absence not phasing head coach    Tue Aug 6, 08:04 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) missed his seventh straight practice Tuesday, Aug. 6, due to a strained left calf and is fully expected to not play in Thursday's preseason opener - or maybe at all during the preseason - but head coach Frank Reich is keeping a level head. 'If I learned anything - and I learned a lot from Tony Dungy, working with him - he literally never flinched,'' Reich said. 'Even when our best players got hurt, you would look at him and you would think it was just ... he was never overly concerned. ... I just think that's important.''

Footballguys view: Luck's calf injury is just the latest concern with the star quarterback. Reich expects Luck to be ready for the regular-season opener. We'll get a better feel for that as we get through the month.

  Colts | Andrew Luck confident about playing Week 1    Mon Aug 5, 02:17 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) told NBC Sports' Peter King he has no doubts about being ready to play in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers.'I certainly believe I will (be ready). That's certainly the goal. At times I do worry about it. It can be frustrating. The arc of an injury, whether it's a big surgical one or something you're rehabbing through. But no, because I've improved. Maybe I'm not improving as fast as I want and missing things is no fun. It eats at you. But I do know at the end of the day if I'm getting the most out of myself, if I'm being the best I can that day, then that's what I need to do,' Luck said.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will not participate in practice Saturday, Aug. 3.

  Colts | Surgery not likely for Andrew Luck    Tue Jul 30, 01:45 PM

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will miss a couple of training-camp practices as he deals with a nagging calf strain, but Luck said Tuesday, July 30, that surgery hasn't been discussed. 'The nature of it is a calf strain,' Luck said. 'I say lower leg because I feel pain in my ankle area. I've had images and X-rays and everything, and my Achilles is not at extra risk. There (are) no tears or swelling or anything that's indicated.'

Footballguys view: This brings up images of Kevin Durant and the NBA Finals, so no matter what Luck says, the team will have to be extra cautious. He is a secretive player, so we wouldn't expect him to divulge if his achilles was in danger or damaged.

  Colts | Andrew Luck says injury not a concern    Tue Jul 30, 12:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf), currently sidelined by a calf injury that has lingered into training camp, said Tuesday, July 30 he 'absolutely' will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

Footballguys view: It's possible that this could affect Luck's rushing upside in early weeks, but he hasn't been adding much in that department lately. There are so many exciting options at quarterback this year that there's no reason to take on extra risk at the position, so as minor as this might be in the big picture, it makes it easier to pass on Luck at ADP.

  Colts | Andrew Luck out a few days    Tue Jul 30, 11:10 AM

Updating an earlier report, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will not practice Wednesday, July 31, and Thursday, Aug. 1.

Footballguys view: Luck says he had a setback, which is always chilling to hear. We might not see him practice for at least a week. As long as he gets back on the field for the third preseason game there is probably no reason for worry.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck was held out of spring practices with a minor calf injury, but he is 'good to go' for training camp, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Footballguys view: After a lot of drama around Luck's condition the last two summers, we're looking forward to a hopefully uneventful camp and preseason for him.

  Colts | Andrew Luck excelling in red zone    Thu Jun 20, 12:32 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's strong red-zone play is a key to the Colts continuing their success inside the opponents' 20-yard line, head coach Frank Reich said earlier in June at the team's minicamp. 'You need really good quarterback play,' Reich said. 'We got that last year. If you look at Andrew's (Luck) career -- that was one of the things I looked at when I got here. I looked at what Andrew's career was on third down and red zone. He's been good at third down and red zone his whole career. We saw that last year.'

Footballguys view: Luck had 32 passing touchdowns in 2018 that were in the red zone. That was good for second in the league behind Patrick Mahomes (35). His 67.4 completion percentage was good for second in the league as well, this time behind Drew Brees (71.6 percent). Luck is currently going off the board at QB2 (4.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will sit out the team's minicamp this week with a calf strain, head coach Frank Reich announced Tuesday, June 11.

Footballguys view: Luck was supposed to be dealing with a low-grade strain. It sounds like the Colts are being wisely cautious with their franchise quarterback. We'll see if Luck can fully participate in training camp when it kicks off later this summer. He is expected to be ready.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (calf) will not participate in practices this week because of his calf injury, according to head coach Frank Reich.

Footballguys view: It doesn't seem like a big deal, but Luck's injury history makes us keep an extra careful eye on the situation. The Colts are doing the same thing. Reich said Luck could play if the team had a game this weekend, but the team wants to be cautious with the injury.

Footballguys view: Luck was a dud in this one in part because the Cowboys and his defense never allowed this to become a competitive game. He'll still be a QB1 against the Giants next week for teams that survived his small stat line.

Footballguys view: Luck had one of the most inefficient performances of his career - in other words the Jaguars defense was very good. He is still set up for a nice game against the Texans next week in a matchup the Colts have to win to credibly entertain thoughts of going to the playoffs.

Footballguys view: Luck has been a maestro lately and is solidly in the strong QB1 tier. The only thing that held him back in this one was the Titans allowing the Colts to put Jacoby Brissett in early. Luck should be in lineups against the Dolphins next week.

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has thrown 15 touchdowns to five interceptions in his last four games. He's averaging 321.5 yards passing per game during the stretch.

Footballguys view: Luck is throwing the ball early and often. The team may have found their primary back with a healthy Marlon Mack and that will only help the offense as a whole. Luck may actually throw fewer attempts if Mack continues to play well as a running back but he should still be highly efficient and a QB1 for Fantasy GMs.

Footballguys view: The Colts played on Thursday night against the Patriots and Luck was filling the air with footballs again. Those 121 passes came within the span of five days. If the Colts want Luck at his best then they should find other ways to move the ball.

Indianapolis Colts OL Joe Haeg (ankle), DT Hassan Ridgeway (calf) and CB Quincy Wilson (concussion) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 4 versus the Houston Texans. OT Anthony Castonzo (hamstring) was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 28, but has also been ruled out.

DE Tarell Basham (non-injury), TE Eric Ebron (shoulder, knee), S Malik Hooker (hamstring), QB Andrew Luck (groin) and DT Al Woods (quad) practiced in full Friday and are no longer listed on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Colts will be without both starting tackles against Houston. Andrew Luck's passing game is not just limited by a possible issue throwing the deep ball.

  Colts | Andrew Luck confident in his arm    Thu Sep 27, 10:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck acknowledged that the deep passing game could improve, but he said that there is nothing physically holding him back. 'I know I'm at a level where I can make all the throws, and I feel confident I'm going out there with my full arsenal,' Luck said.

Footballguys view: Luck doesn't have a deep ball right now and both he and the Colts know it. He can still be a productive passer when he's not facing good defenses like Philadelphia and Washington on the road, but he doesn't have the high QB1 ceiling right now.
