Luck had right shoulder surgery in January 2017 to repair an injury (partially torn labrum) that dated back to the 2015 season. There is no timetable for his return. He has begun camp on the PUP list and could miss the entire preseason.

Summary

Andrew Luck is coming off offseason surgery on his shoulder that he injured early in the 2015 season. He played through it in 2016 and still finished 4th among fantasy quarterbacks. Recent reports suggest he should be cleared to play by Week 1, but he may not be fully recovered for training camp in August. At the least, don't expect to see him fully exert himself before Week 1. Luck is one of the top quarterbacks in the league, even when not fully healthy. A clean bill of health suggests we could see an improvement over last year's Top 4 finish. The Colts have a solid base of talent at receiver led by T.Y. Hilton, who has not finished outside of the Top 25 since he debuted in 2012. Luck will also have a healthy Donte Moncrief who missed 7 games due to a shoulder injury. In the nine games he played, he scored 7 touchdowns (all in different games). His return will help the passing game and give Luck more options on offense. Look for Luck to reach 4,000 yards passing once again this year, which would make four times in six years. Consider Luck one of the top quarterbacks in the league, especially if he can rise to the occasion with no ill-effects of his offseason shoulder surgery. (May 17)

Colts | Andrew Luck going on PUP (Mon Jul 24, 01:08 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) will begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to general manager Chris Ballard. The team expects Luck to come off before the beginning of the season.

Colts | Scott Tolzien still the backup (Sat Jul 15, 11:52 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Scott Tolzien is ahead of QB Stephen Morris on the depth chart and would likely start in Week 1 if QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) isn't ready, according to Kevin Bowen to Colts.com.

Our View: Tolzien started the Week 12 game against the Steelers last year, going 22-of-36 for 205 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. All signs point to Luck being ready for Week 1 but that's not a given. Expect Luck to be limited during training camp and the preseason as he comes back from his January shoulder surgery.

Colts | Andrew Luck's status still unclear (Thu Jul 13, 09:33 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) has still not indicated if he has begun the throwing portion of his shoulder rehab, but Kevin Bowen of Colts.com believes the fact that no veteran quarterback was signed this offseason means Luck is on track to start in Week 1.

Our View: That's the plan for the Colts....but watch this situation closely in training camp and the preseason to see if it comes to fruition. A healthy Luck is a QB1 for fantasy owners. His current ADP is QB5 (6.06) in 12-team PPR leagues.
