Things are looking quite gloomy when it comes to Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who remains on the PUP list as of Monday.

This latest news is quite worrisome, even if it’s hard to believe

If Luck is not even throwing, that’s a bad sign. He’s been rumored to be throwing at least a little bit, but it’s hard to figure out why Pagano would lie about this. For now, the plan is for the Colts to proceed with the other quarterbacks on the roster.

What else can the Colts do? Behind Luck is Scott Tolzien, who will likely be the starter Week 1 if Luck remains sidelined. Stephen Morris and rookie Phillip Walker sit behind Tolzien in depth.

In three preseason appearances, Tolzien has looked mediocre, at best. He has completed 65.5 percent of his passes for 217 yards, zero scores and an interception.

More than anything, the Colts need Luck healthy and back behind center. Unfortunately, signs are pointing towards Luck being far from ready to return in Week 1. With no timetable for his return, the show must go on with the other quarterbacks attempting to pick up the slack.

Luck has not played a completely healthy season since 2014.
