The Indianapolis Colts knew that Andrew Luck was going to miss at least one week. Now, after a report on Sunday morning, the team may be without him until at least Week 4.
Luck, who is the franchise quarterback, will be out until October, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The Colts begin the season with the Los Angeles Rams.
Their first Oct. opponent is on Oct. 1 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Luck underwent shoulder surgery in Jan. Since that time, the team has been cautious with him.
While he has thrown, he has not practiced with the team yet. Luck would have to practice first before he will be eligible to return.
The Legion of Boom defense was not as great as it used to be, but it would be definitely tough for the Colts to put Luck in that situation against the Seahawks. They may wait until the following week when the Colts face the San Francisco 49ers.
“It’s going to be Scott Tolzien as their quarterback and my understanding is we’re still a couple weeks away at least from seeing Andrew Luck,” Rapoport said.
In addition to Tolzien, the team acquired Jacoby Brissett from the New England Patriots. He’ll be Tolzien’s back-up before Luck is able to return.
