Colts QB Andrew Luck ‘Day To Day’ With Injury In Throwing Shoulder

Andrew Luck’s 2015 campaign hasn’t gotten off to the greatest start. Now you can add injury — albeit a minor one — to insult.

The Indianapolis Colts quarterback was a limited participant in his team’s practice Wednesday, taking a backseat to backup Matt Hasselbeck for most of the session. Colts head coach Chuck Pagano told reporters after practice Luck injured his shoulder during Indy’s win over the Tennessee Titans last Sunday and is considered “day-to-day.”

Before Luck’s fantasy owners have a heart attack, though, Pagano said he has “supreme confidence” Luck will play this Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, while Luck himself said he “fully expect(s)” to be on the field.

Yet the normally healthy Luck has never appeared on an NFL injury report in his career, and this development isn’t exactly good news for a guy who’s thrown seven interceptions in three games and enters the weekend with a 65.1 passer rating. Indy also signed quarterback Alex Tanney to the practice squad Tuesday.

A home date with the 1-2 Jaguars should be a welcome sight for Luck and the Colts, but given that they needed a 21-point fourth quarter to sneak past the Titans, this game might not be the layup it has been in recent years.
