Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard has admitted that quarterback Andrew Luck will be gradually worked back into practice this week. This will be the first-time that Luck has practiced this season as he deals with shoulder surgery.

“We’ll slowly start working him back into practice this week,” Ballard said during an interview with CBS4‘s Mike Chappell. “We’ll see how much he gets.

“But we’ve got a plan in place to where we want him to start getting him reps and then, in time, as we can get him incorporated back into teamwork and all that, we’ll get him back on the field.”

While Luck will be practicing, there is still no timeframe on when exactly he’ll be back. Scott Tolzien and Jacoby Brissett will continue to split the time as the team struggles.

The Colts are 1-3 this season — and presently 4th in the AFC South. They were also blown out 46-18 to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Wash.

The team’s lone win has come against the winless Cleveland Browns, as they won 31-28 in Week 3.

The 28-year-old franchise quarterback may not officially return until November, according to orthopedic surgeon Dr. David Chao. The team was originally targeting Week 6 for Luck, but that will not be the case now.

Chao insists Luck will need approx. four weeks of practice, before he’s able to return to NFL action.
