Andrew Luck to avoid another surgery?

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck has resumed throwing.

Fantasy Impact

Although Luck has resumed throwing, he's not throwing a football. In fact, per Rapoport, he's throwing weighted balls that are heavier than a football, which bodes well for his recovery outlook. How well? Luck told reporters Tuesday that he will avoid another shoulder surgery, which puts him on track to play in 2018, barring unforeseen circumstances. While there are no guarantees on his recovery, the current news is positive. From a fantasy perspective, I'd buy low on Luck sooner rather than later, especially if his health remains trending upwards.

Andrew Luck set to resume throwing

Indianapolis Colts beat writer Zak Keefer is reporting QB Andrew Luck (shoulder) is "set" to resume throwing again.

Fantasy Impact

Per Keefer, Luck spent a month in the Netherlands and returned "looking fresh (and noticeably stronger)." As a result, the injury-plagued signal caller is set to begin throwing again for the first time in an extended period of time. Therefore, If Luck's rehab continues to trend upwards, I'd expect him to be ready for the start of the 2018 season. A healthy Luck paired with highly-anticipated new head-coaching hire Patriots OC Josh McDaniels could rejuvenate a stalled Colts offense that has regressed since he initially suffered his shoulder injury at the end of the 2015 season.

Andrew Luck placed on IR

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Indianapolis Colts have placed quarterback Andrew Luck on the injured reserve list.

Fantasy Impact

It is not surprising that Luck was placed on IR. Not only has he suffered setbacks, but he hasn't stepped on the practice field. Per reports, the plan is to "shut down" Luck's throwing while he continues to rehab the shoulder injury, which is not career-threatening. Jacoby Brissett is the Colts' QB1 for the remainder of the year.

Andrew Luck ruled out Week 9

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano told the press quarterback Andrew Luck (shoulder) is ruled out Week 9.

Fantasy Impact

Again, here is my weekly Luck is ruled out blurb, as expected. The ailing signal caller will be held out of practice for the third straight week, making a 2017 return unlikely. I expect him to be shut down sooner rather than later.

Andrew Luck feeling pain in his throwing shoulder again

Andrew Luck is feeling pain in his surgically repaired throwing shoulder once again and is seeking additional medical opinions to find out why, according to Fox's Jay Glazer.

Fantasy Impact

At the beginning of the season, the Colts and fantasy owners alike were hopeful that Luck might only miss a week or two at the beginning of the season. As the year has gone on, however, it is becoming more and more likely that he will not see the field in 2017. His rehab has been very slow to progress, and pain in his shoulder is a serious red flag.
