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.

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 still not throwing (Wed Jun 28, 12:04 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) told reporters Wednesday, June 28, despite the fact his rehab is going well, he still has yet to throw since his January shoulder surgery. “Feeling better and better every week,” Luck said. “Still haven’t started throwing. But that process will come when it’s ready.” When asked about the status of his rehab, he replied: “No reason to be sullen or morose! It’s a beautiful day.”

Our View: We're watching Luck's progress closely as he returns from this injury. His Week 1 status is not in doubt at this time but we imagine Luck will be limited through training camp and into the preseason.

Colts | Chester Rogers more polished (Fri Jun 16, 11:53 PM) - Indianapolis Colts WR Chester Rogers is running sharper routes this year, according to QB Andrew Luck, and Mike Wells of ESPN.com believes Rogers has put himself in the mix for the No. 3 receiver job.

Our View: Undrafted out of Grambling State in 2016, Rogers played 380 snaps as a rookie and hauled in 19 passes for 273 yards. He's competing for the no3 WR spot with the Colts behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Veteran Kamar Aiken has to be considered the favorite right now, but we think Rogers has intriguing dynasty potential.
