Luck has an ankle issue that hasn't been clearly diagnosed and could endanger his Week 1 availability

Summary

After missing the entire 2017 season recovering, rehabilitating, and resting from shoulder surgery, Andrew Luck returned to the Top 10 among fantasy quarterbacks. Luck will enter his 8th year in the league, but he has only played six seasons. He has finished in the Top 10 in five of those seasons, including three Top 5 finishes. Last season he reached 39 touchdown passes, second only to Patrick Mahomes' 50 touchdowns. This marked the third time in his career where he surpassed 30 touchdown passes in a season. One year ago, there was uncertainty if Luck could come back to form after enduring major rotator cuff surgery on his shoulder. The year off in 2017 did him well, and he is expected to be fully healthy once again for the 2019 season. His 13 games with multiple touchdowns and 7 games of 300+ yards passing makes him a consistently effective quarterback that is worthy of being selected in the Top 5 in redraft leagues. At the end of July, Luck indicated he had some soreness in his calf that has lingered into training camp. At this point it is not considered serious, however, it is worth keeping an eye on. The team is being cautious, holding him out of practice for a few days. (July 31)

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.'

Our 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.

Our 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.

Our 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.
