Luck (concussion/shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice. He was set to meet with an independent neurologist Friday afternoon in the final step to be cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol, the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's widely expected that Luck will be cleared to play in Monday's game, especially with the Colts releasing third-string quarterback Stephen Morris. It sounds like Luck may officially be cleared in the next day or so.

Luck (concussion/shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Luck said he worked out in Wednesday's practice without any restrictions, so it's likely not a worry that he's listed as being limited. Luck has had a day of limited reps each week this season to reduce the load on his shoulder and that could be the case Thursday. Luck still needs to be cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol before he's allowed to play Monday, but the expectations are that he will be able to play.

Luck (concussion) characterized his participation in Wednesday's practice as "full."

EDGE Analysis

Luck, who noted that he feels great after working with "no restrictions" Wednesday, has just one more hurdle to clear before gaining full clearance under the NFL's concussion protocol. That's the confirmation of an independent neurologist, which could arrive in relatively short order and well before Monday night's game against the Jets.

At this stage, Luck (concussion) remains in the NFL's concussion protocol, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per coach Chuck Pagano, if Luck is cleared by an independent neurologist after practice though, the QB will be a go for Monday's game against the Jets. In the absence of any setbacks, we'd expect Luck to gain clearance in the next couple days, paving the way for him to return to action after giving way to Scott Tolzien in this past Thursday's 28-7 loss to the Steelers.

Luck is in the final stages of the league's concussion protocol and will see an independent neurologist to potentially be cleared Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Wells reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luck returned to practice Monday and was seen throwing passing as usual, suggesting he's close to fully returning from his Week 11 concussion. Coach Chuck Pagano confirmed that notion after practice, saying Luck will continue to practice Wednesday, when he believes the quarterback will be cleared in time for next Monday's game against the Jets.

Luck (concussion) returned to practice Monday, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luck missed Indianapolis' Thanksgiving loss after suffering a Week 11 concussion, but his return to practice Monday suggests he's close to clearing protocol. That bodes well for his availability ahead the Colts' next contest, which doesn't come until next Monday against the Jets. Expect Luck's status to be updated as more information regarding his condition is released.

The Colts anticipate that Luck (concussion) will be cleared to practice Monday, CBS's Jason La Canfora reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Colts believe Luck would have been able to play this week if the team's game had been on a Sunday instead of Thursday, according to the report. Luck missed Indy's loss to Pittsburgh on Thanksgiving after suffering a concussion in Week 11.

Luck (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Pittsburgh, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scott Tolzien is expected to start at quarterback with Luck out. It sounds like Luck could miss just one game, but it's hard to set any timetable for a return from a concussion.

Luck (concussion) was unable to practice Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

With a concussion in tow during a short week of prep, Luck is already a long shot to take the field Thursday against the Steelers. One practice remains for the signal-caller to make his presence felt, but the five-step protocol for head injuries may too much to overcome. If he's deemed inactive, Scott Tolzien will be under center against the 26th-ranked pass defense.

Luck (concussion) was not spotted at Tuesday's practice, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's possible Luck could get some work in behind the scenes, but he is presumably still in the concussion protocol, which means he will not be able to practice Tuesday. There is still time for him to be cleared before the Colts' next game Thursday, but not much. If Luck is ultimately ruled out this week, Scott Tolzien would get the start in his place.
