Andrew Luck Will Not Practice This Week

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will not participate in practice this week as he battles an ankle injury, the team announced on Tuesday.

Reich told reporters that full-speed movements and Luck's pain threshold continue to be primary factors as he works his way back. Colts general manager Chris Ballard had said on August 13 that Luck has a hard time moving side to side due to the pain in his left ankle.

The team has been secretive regarding Luck's injury for most of the preseason.

Greece 'monitoring closely' Iranian tanker, FM sources say
The Iranian vessel was detained for a month for allegedly attempting to violate European Union sanctions on Syria. It is standard practice for a vessel to give notice 48 hours before docking at a port, Greek officials said.

Jacoby Brissett will continue to lead the Colts while Luck is out.

Luck will have only two weeks of practice if he does play in the Week 1 game against the Chargers. Around that same time, Reich said he wanted to name the team's starter after Week 3 of the preseason. He then missed the final seven games of that season after suffering a lacerated kidney and a partially torn abdominal muscle. Luck, 29, was initially out with a calf injury. Luck returned to Pro Bowl form in 2018, playing in all 16 regular-season games and leading the Colts to the divisional round of the AFC playoffs.

There appeared to be some hope that Luck was on his way to returning to the practice field last weekend.
