Andrew Luck “Full Go” at Practice, Likely to Start Preseason Opener
Colts head coach Frank Reich expects Luck on the field on August 9.
The long nightmare of the Indianapolis Colts not having their franchise quarterback on the field could be coming to an end.
Two weeks before the team is set start their preseason with a game against the Seattle Seahawks on Augst 9, Indy head coach Frank Reich said he fully expects Andrew Luck to start the opener.
One note on #Colts QB Andrew Luck: Sounds like he’s really amped up the throwing, firing several balls in practice. While media has only seen him throw lightly, he has let loose. And, as far as arm strength, he’s close to where he was pre-injury.

According to Reich, Luck has been a “full go” at practice this week and has no limitations. He will be rested during a scheduled day off on Saturday though.
That shouldn’t come as a surprise as Indianapolis general manager Chris Ballard previously said Luck would rest frequently in order to preserve him for the regular season.
Luck missed all of last season thanks to a lingering shoulder injury and, if he does actually return to play in the preseason, it will be his first game action in 19 months.
There have been setbacks — Luck wasn’t even throwing as recently as two months ago — so Colts fans aren’t out of the woods yet, but this is certainly positive news.
