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. Team owner Robert Irsay has said he will be back "around" the season opener.

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 was placed on the preseason physically unable to perform list (PUP list) on July 24th. This news is concerning in that he likely will not play in the preseason and could be rusty in the first few weeks of the season. Luck is one of the top quarterbacks in the league, even when not fully healthy, so perhaps his time away from practice won't be as damaging as some believe. If and when Luck receives a clean bill of health, 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. (August 13)

Colts | Andrew Luck not a lock for Week 1 (Sun Aug 13, 08:33 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) might not be ready for the season opener, according to owner Jim Irsay, but Irsay said Luck will be ready around the start of the season.

Our View: Same as it ever was. It's a concern that everyone is being so clandestine when it comes to information on Luck. We HOPE he's ready for Week 1, but that may not be the case. When healthy, Luck is a top-5 fantasy quarterback. His ADP keeps falling as more of these reports come out where his status for Week 1 is a mystery.

Colts | Andrew Luck building strength (Sun Aug 13, 04:14 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck's (shoulder) surgically repaired shoulder is stronger now than it was at any point last season, according to general manager Chris Ballard.

Our View: Colts owner Jim Irsay said he felt Luck would be ready "around" the start of the regular season. That doesn't make Luck a lock for Week 1, but it seems like things are trending in that direction. Everyone knows he's a top-5 fantasy quarterback when healthy. He's getting drafted at QB7 (7.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Colts | Andrew Luck unlikely to open on PUP (Wed Aug 9, 11:43 AM) - Updating an ongoing story, Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is unlikely to open the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to general manager Chris Ballard. His Week 1 availability is still to be determined. Luck has progressed in his throwing program the last two weeks rebuilding his motion and strength.

Our View: The worry about Luck's shoulder is warranted and he probably should be dropping outside of the top 6-8 quarterbacks. That being said, he can still be elite by midseason, but you'll have to draft a second quarterback will a good matchup or three to open the season. TY Hilton and Donte Moncrief aren't helped by this either.

Colts | Still no timetable for Andrew Luck (Tue Aug 8, 01:56 PM) - Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) remains without a timeline to begin practicing, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Our View: Nothing like a lack of clarity, eh? We can't see Luck playing or practicing much at all during the preseason. Luck may miss the summer but get thrust into the starting lineup for Week 1 of the regular season. He's a top-5 fantasy quarterback when healthy.
