Was it an actual setback? 

 

I just know that this calf injury has been going on for longer than I like. One PS game...could easilty turn into all of PS. 

 

Andrew himself called it a "setback".

At this point I won't be surprised if we don't see him until the 3rd PS game, if that.

It'll be interesting to see if he's back at practice by the time the joint practice with the Browns rolls around.

It should be fun to read some of these upcoming posts. I was actually hoping Luck would not play in the 1st 2 pre-season games, no need for a franchise QB with his experience to do so. He should play a half in the 3rd game and 1 series in the last game. That is just my opinion. He just needs to get 100% healthy before the regular season which is still 6 weeks away.

He would not of played much in the first preseason game anyway. That is no big deal. What is important is not having time with his new receivers and getting in sync.

I agree with this. It punishes everyone but Hilton, and I'm tired of this front office lying about Luck like the fans are pieces of meat. I'm getting paid on the 1st of the month, and now I don't want to order Sunday ticket. Sad, because I was really excited for the season before and after the draft, and right before training camp.

Im on a concern level yellow right now cause we are only about 5 weeks or so from regular season game one and this calf is still a problem sit him the rest of camp don't take any chances the Warriors pushed Kevin Durant to return too soon and he got a ruptured Achillies tendon for his trouble that happens to luck our season is up in smoke before it even begins sit him let him heal.

I am not going to say it’s time to panic but it’s time to be concerned.  The Colts have a history of being less than honest about Luck’s health and the time he’s been healing is well beyond what it should take for someone to heal from a simple calf strain.  Again,  I am not saying it’s panic time.  Luck could very well be out there for pre-season game two or three, but there is enough smoke here to be concerned about a fire.

At least they are being smart about it. Sit him for all of pre-season as long as it heals. Mildly surprising it’s not healed yet. I read somewhere between 6 weeks-3 months for a high level calf strain.

Doesn’t look like they were planning on letting him play first or last game of preseason prior to this news coming out according to the above linked article.

I think it’s typically the third preseason game you see the starters play more.

I’m glad he’s being honest with himself about this. He also was open with the media about what’s going on. 

 

There are concerns, for example waiting three days to see if anything improves, but I’m going to trust him on this. At least it’s not his shoulder this time.

 

I say it too often I know, but time will reveal answers in the end.

Since it's been lingering so long, I'm a bit concerned now.  Time for Luck to take another trip to the Netherlands.

I don't think concern is an overreaction at all.  Luck means so much to the team.

Hopefully he gets healthy, but it looks like he may fight this all season.   

 

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will not practice for the next two days as he continues to manage a calf injury, according to coach Frank Reich.

Luck did not practice Tuesday, following an off-day for players on Monday.

Luck told reporters that he felt pain in the calf during Sunday's practice. He acknowledged that the idea of surgery was previously discussed but determined not to be necessary.

"The nature of it is a calf strain. I say lower leg because I feel pain in my ankle area. I've had images and X-rays and everything, and my Achilles is not at extra risk. There is no tears or swelling or anything that's indicated," he said.

Reich also said Luck would not play in the Colts' preseason opener, a decision made months ago. The coach would not commit to Luck's status for the second and third preseason games.

Luck said he would be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

Luck missed the Colts' OTAs and minicamp after injuring his calf during the spring. General manager Chris Ballard said Wednesday that Luck would be limited for the first 7-10 days of camp because the team didn't want to rush him back.

This forum gives me high blood pressure. You know how many experienced elite QBs sit out during camp and preseason from minor injuries that would never prevent them from playing a real game? Its something to monitor, but nothing to panic about. Watch his media brief and tell me thats a worried Andrew Luck.

This should be cause for concern. But here's why I am not much, if at all. This roster is good. Still young. But good. Much different situation than what Brissett was thrown a) behind, and b) surrounded by a few years back... I'm completely comfortable thinking JB can win IF Andrew were to miss a few weeks to start the season. We can win enough to be in the thick of things or even at the top of the division IF that were to happen. 

 

The key thing here is that our leadership is not going to rush him and he will be 100% or damn close to it when he hits that field the first time. Perhaps that's the Home opener in week 3, and we are 1-1 or 2-0. Is that cause for concern? Not for me...

Nobody is being lied to.   Two posters made that claim.   There was a NEW development on Sunday.

 

Fans are not entitled to all the news and information.    We’re entitled to whatever the team wants to tell us — period.   

 

This news is not good.  Why anyone is posting that they’re not worried or that they don’t think there’s reason for anyone to worry is a complete mystery. 

Luck hasn’t healed in three months.  The season starts in 5 weeks.   There’s your reason for worry.......

I honestly will not be concerned at all unless they announce he is out for the 3rd game of the pre-season. The starters play in that game is why. As far as "Nobody is being lied to", I agree with you 100% there. Some think our organization is shady I guess haha .

He's had a setback. What has happened with it over the last few months is kind of irrelevant at this point, seeing that he was doing fine and practicing. There is no indication this isn't extreme precautionary and that he won't be playing week 1. The contrary actually.

IF for some reason Luck can't start the season, then I have confidence in Brissett.  He knows the offense and will be much better protected than he was a couple of years ago.  It's an entirely different situation for him now, compared to when he first arrived.

 

And, I don't believe we are being lied to, at all.  What would be the reason for that?  Excitement for this team is higher than it's been in a long time, and it's not all because of our QB.

 

I just think the setback was unexpected and they said from the beginning that Luck would be eased into training camp.

 

So he misses some pre-season game time...as long as he can come back and practice, I'm sure he'll be ready for week 1...and if not, then it would be due to another setback, not because the team is lying and hiding something.

    • With his injury history, I doubt there are going to be many teams out there offering to dish out money like he'd be a guaranteed starter, and I would doubt many teams are going to be throwing long-term deals at him.  He has to prove he can stay healthy for a 16 game season, something he hasn't done in 4 years (7 games, 14 games, 13 games, <2 games).     So, it wouldn't be too surprising (IMO) if Ballard offered him a 1 year deal with a low guarantee and some incentives built in... but he probably knows he's a better fit in a different scheme and can get a similar deal elsewhere where he's more suited to play.     It will be interesting... if JT/Wilkins/Hines prove they're a formidable trio, where would Mack fit in the puzzle if he came back to Indy next year... I'd think he'd be able to go elsewhere, get offered more $ and have a better chance to get more carries.  I could be wrong, but my sense is that JT is going to establish himself a true #1 RB in this league before this year ends.  I understand his wear may be an issue considering how many miles he put on in college, but so far (in limited time) Wilkins has shown he can be a solid supplement to him.  Mack has already shown the league he can be an upper-level back in the NFL, so I don't think he'll have too much trouble finding $ if he is passing all his physicals and looking good in his workouts.     TJ Green or Laron Landry... I don't think Hooker is even close to either of those guys.  Hooker produced in college, he was producing very well (being talked about DROY) as a rookie before he got hurt.  He hasn't been a bad football player here.  He doesn't get thrown at much.  He's playing a scheme that isn't entirely suited to his skill set... but he has shown he can play.  TJ Green was a raw guy who didn't produce near the level as Hooker did in college and never showed anything in the NFL (another Grigs bust) and Landry was a roided out freak who was shown the door by the league because he couldn't pass PED tests.   Hooker, if he can stay healthy, can play in this league.  That is his major concern, is his health... he is an above average football player who could be very good if he's in the right system.     Yes, that was a weird scenario all around.  Ballard, keep in mind, didn't get to choose his coach.  He was basically stuck with Pagano.  Ballard knew what scheme he wanted to run on D, which was different than Pagano.  Pagano was talking about Hooker as 'the next Ed Reed' (who played under Pagano when he was a DC in Baltimore).  Hooker really fit the Pagano mold.  I would not be shocked, if Pagano is still in a defensive coordinator position going into next year that Hooker went to whatever team Pagano was affiliated with, TBH.  
    • Agreed.  He came to the Colts to play with Luck, make a lot of stats, win a lot of games, and make a lot of money.  When Luck quit, and he had to play with Brissett, none of those things were going to happen anymore, and he knew it.  The light just went out of his eyes, and he didn't really care to be here anymore.
    • I can absolutely see the loss costing us positioning in the playoffs. Hopefully it was just rust (execution and game plan) and we'll start to roll. There really is no making up for a loss to a team ranked 32nd (at the time). It is what it is, and you just got to move on. Perhaps beating TN on the road might make up for, but honestly TN doesn't look all that great right now, and I already thought we'd fair well against them.   As far as the whole O vs D thing, simply put, they are symbiotic. A good D helps the offense by giving them opportunity and field position. A good O helps the D by keeping them off the field.
    • Once again, I agree with u in sine points. Also as the season progresses, teams get more film ti look at. I am just not a big beleiver in this scheme. Feel it is out dated.
