Luck (shoulder) is anticipated to be ready for the preseason, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luck is recovering from a January surgery on his throwing shoulder, which is expected to be out of commission for three months following the procedure. Overall, the quarterback is projected to need six months to make a full recovery, which puts him in line to return some time during training camp. While that will obviously prevent him from taking part in offseason activities, if Luck can re-enter the fold during the preseason, fantasy owners should feel good about his status going into the regular season.

Luck's surgery to address a lingering right shoulder issue is in line to prevent the QB from throwing for three months, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

The NFL.com report adds that a full recovery entails a period of approximately six months, a scenario that would enable Luck to be at full strength at or around the opening of training camp this coming July. Such an outcome precludes any setbacks, but a continuing theme with regard to Luck's status is that the QB is expected to be ready for the start of the 2017 campaign. Though a regular on the Colts' injury report this past season, Luck started all but one of the team's games in 2016, en route to recording 4,240 passing yards and a 31:13 TD:INT ratio. With a complete recovery assumed, Luck should remain a quality fantasy option in 2017, though back-to-back 8-8 results in which the Colts did not qualify for the playoffs figure to lead to some re-tooling of the QB's supporting cast this offseason.

The right shoulder procedure that Luck recently underwent was described by Colts owner Jim Irsay as "successful outpatient surgery," the Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the specifics of the procedure and a precise timetable for the QB's recovery have not yet been offered, Irsay noted that Luck, whose shoulder issue had lingered since Week 3 of the 2015 campaign, will be ready for the start of the 2017 season. With that in mind, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport suggests that the motivation for Luck going ahead with the surgery is for the QB -- who was an injury report regular in 2016 -- "to not have to be limited in practice anymore."

Luck underwent offseason surgery to repair a right shoulder injury, Colts owner Jim Irsay reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luck has apparently been dealing with a lingering shoulder injury since 2015, but that didn't stop him from throwing for 4,240 yards and 31 touchdowns in 2016. Although Irsay didn't get into the specifics of the procedure, he did note that Luck will be ready to begin his sixth NFL season in 2017.

Luck completed 24 of 40 passes for 321 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception Sunday against the Jaguars. He also rushed three times for 17 yards and lost a fumble in the 24-20 win.

EDGE Analysis

Luck found tight end Jack Doyle from one yard out with nine seconds to play for the game-winning touchdown after getting the ball down by three with 1:33 left. This performance put the 2012 first overall pick over 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns for just the second time in his five-year career, with 4,240 and 31, respectively. He also threw just 13 interceptions this season, and has reestablished himself as one of the game's most dependable quarterbacks.

Luck (right shoulder) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jaguars after practicing fully Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The 7-8 Colts will look to close out their season on a high note against the 3-12 Jaguars, with Luck on track to start Sunday's game before heading into the offseason to heal up from the aches and pains he's collected this season, en route to compiling a 29:12 TD:INT ratio and passing for 3,919 yards over 14 games.

Luck (right shoulder) was limited at practice Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Luck has been limited or given days off of late in order to reduce the workload on his throwing shoulder, but it hasn't been an issue during games. We don't expect that to change in Sunday's season finale against the Jaguars.

Luck was 19-of-29 passing for 288 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's loss to Oakland. He also had four carries for 12 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown.

EDGE Analysis

Luck didn't play well in the loss as he threw two interceptions in the first half and had most of his success after the Colts fell far behind. He was under pressure much of the game, but wasn't sacked for a second consecutive game.

Luck (shoulder/thumb) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Luck was limited in Wednesday's practice. Luck has been limited or given days off each week to reduce the workload on his shoulder, but it hasn't been an issue during games. He's also been wearing a glove on his right hand in practice after suffering a cut on his thumb. Neither issue looks like a concern for Saturday's game against Oakland.
