The Colts proceed being cautious with quarterback Andrew Luck and his strained calf.
Coach Frank Reich instructed reporters Luck will sit out practices Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
“Continuing to progress with his strength, still a degree of pain that he’s not comfortable with,” Reich mentioned (by way of 1070 The Fan). “Obviously we’re not comfortable with putting him out there. We’re going to continue to work with our medical staff on the plan moving forward.”
The 29-year-old quarterback strained his calf this spring and missed the Colts’ OTAs and minicamp, though Reich mentioned in June he would have been capable of play if there have been a sport.
In late July, Reich instructed reporters that seeing Kevin Durant endure an harm within the NBA Finals had influenced his pondering on the way to convey Luck again on top of things. Durant tore his Achilles in his first sport again after lacking a month with a calf harm.
“We didn’t really talk about it, but I think we all knew it,” Reich mentioned of Durant’s harm (by way of the Indianapolis Star). “I was certainly thinking it. When you see something like that happen, you’re like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s why we do what we’re doing.'”
Luck has participated in three coaching camp practices, all as a restricted participant, and mentioned he feels as if one thing would pull when he strikes a sure approach.
Based on NFL.com, Luck’s standing has led the Colts to contemplate carrying three quarterbacks on the roster to open the season.
