The Indianapolis Colts are hoping to potentially have injured quarterback Andrew Luck back on the field for their Week 6 game against the AFC South-leading Tennessee Titans.
If that were to happen, Luck would actually have to take to the practice field first. It’s something we have not seen since he underwent off-season shoulder surgery.
Though, it does seem like things are trending in the right direction here. According to head coach Chuck Pagano, there’s a possibility Luck will be able to return to practice this week.

Following a 31-28 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, things might be finally looking up for the Colts. The recently acquired Jacoby Brissett completed 17-of-24 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown in that game. He’s proven to be much more reliable than Scott Tolzien under center.
Even then, if the Colts are going to make a surprise run for the division title in 2017, they will need Luck back and at 100 percent here soon. Resuming practice this week would be a nice first step.
