Luck completed 38 of 59 passes for 365 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Colts' 38-24 loss to the Patriots on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Luck matched Tom Brady pass for pass, and his final numbers were actually slightly better than the Patriots quarterback. However, that still added up to a two-touchdown defeat for the Colts, which saw New England storm back for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter after Luck had pulled Indianapolis to within 24-17 with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Erik Swoope. Luck did comfortably exceed the 300-yard mark for the second consecutive game, and his YPA was once again over 6.0 after a pair of contests where he'd checked in under that figure. Luck's longest completion was still a relatively modest 28 yards Thursday, but his 7:2 TD:INT and 829 passing yards over the last games undoubtedly has fantasy owners pleased. He'll look to stay hot against the Jets in a Week 6 battle.

Luck completed 40 of 62 passes for 464 yards, four touchdowns and a two-point conversion during Sunday's 37-34 loss to Houston. He added 11 yards on the ground and fumbled twice, losing one.

EDGE Analysis

Down eight with less than three minutes to go, Luck marched the Colts down the field for 85 yards, capping it off with a nine-yard strike to Nyheim Hines and a fake-hand-off drop pass to Chester Rogers for the two-point conversion. Indy hasn't been bashful about working Luck as he has attempted at least 40 passes in three of four games and has averaged 46.5 per game. That's all well and good, but ending a game with 41 rushing yards, 11 of them from Luck, isn't exactly the way to keep a franchise quarterback with past shoulder trouble on the field. Luck could use the return of Marlon Mack. In the meantime, he takes on a New England team on Thursday that bounced back in a big way in Week 4.

Colts head coach Frank Reich said the Colts turning to Jacoby Brissett to throw a 60-yard Hail Mary attempt at the end of Sunday's loss at Philadelphia had nothing to do with Luck's health. "It had nothing to do with that (a fear of hurting his shoulder). It was everything about getting the ball into the end zone," he told Bob Kravitz of WTHR Channel 13 in Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

Both Luck and Reich said that Brissett has a stronger arm and Reich added Luck would have stayed in the game if the throw was closer. The Hail Mary fell incomplete in the loss. Luck has looked back to full speed so far this season, so we're not worried about him not throwing one long desperation pass.

Luck completed 25 of 40 passes for 164 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-16 loss to the Eagles. He added a 33-yard run to the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Luck answered Carson Wentz's welcome-home touchdown two drives later with one of his own, throwing a pretty fade to new teammate Ryan Grant to tie the game. The highlights slowed down after that. It was another reserved game for Luck. Despite a big game against Cincinnati in Week 1 and the fact that he's averaged 41 attempts per game through three weeks, he has yet to find his stride downfield. He is averaging just 5.3 yards per attempt and has yet to complete a pass of 30 yards or more. He'll get a chance to change that against a reeling Texans team next week.

Luck completed 21 of 31 passes for 179 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while adding two yards on four carries in Sunday's 21-9 win over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Luck hooked up with Eric Ebron for a seven-yard touchdown on the opening drive and added a three-yard score to T.Y. Hilton in the fourth quarter. Hilton was his favorite target throughout, accounting for 83 of Luck's 179 passing yards. While this wasn't an exceptional performance by any means, Luck made the throws he needed to and, most importantly, didn't seem limited whatsoever by the shoulder injury that forced him to miss all of last season.

Lucks didn't have any issues with his shoulder or arm after throwing 53 passes in Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Bengals, Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan reports. "I thought that was my best throwing day to date through this whole journey," Luck said Wednesday. "I do feel like (my arm strength) is where it needs to be. I've proven to myself that, especially in practice, that I can make those deeper throws."

EDGE Analysis

Luck admitted to feeling soreness throughout his body after playing a full football game for the first time since Week 17 of 2016. The important thing is that he didn't have any issues with the surgically repaired shoulder, despite putting the Colts on his back in an effort to compensate for a lackluster rushing attack. We may see more of the same in Week 2, though a road game against the Redskins should make things at least a little bit tougher from an efficiency standpoint.

Luck completed 39 of 53 passes for 319 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 34-23, season-opening loss to the the Bengals. He also rushed once for seven yards.

EDGE Analysis

Luck threw a red-zone interception on his second pass, but he bounced back beautifully. He led the offense down to the one-yard line on the next drive before settling for a field goal, then connected with tight end Eric Ebron for a 26-yard touchdown on the subsequent possession. Indianapolis failed to get much going on the ground without Marlon Mack (hamstring), and Luck failed to close this one out after connecting with T.Y. Hilton for a five-yard score to take a 23-10 lead in the third quarter. While the Colts came up short here, it was nice to see Luck look mostly sharp in his return from a shoulder injury that's kept him out since 2016. Luck also admitted today that his shoulder injury was exacerbated by a snowboarding accident in the 2015-16 offseason.

Luck is not listed on the initial injury report for Sunday's home game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Luck injured his foot in the Colts' third preseason game and missed some practice time the following week, but it never seemed like a real threat to his availability for what will be his first regular-season game since 2016. The 28-year-old quarterback will take aim at a Cincinnati defense bringing back most of the key pieces from a 2017 unit that limited quarterbacks to 6.5 yards per pass attempt and 23 total touchdowns (three rushing).

Luck (foot) is on the field Monday for Indianapolis' first practice of the regular season, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

As anticipated, the foot injury that Luck sustained in the Colts' Aug. 25 preseason contest against the 49ers proved to be just a minor concern. Though the quarterback was held out of practice last week as a precaution, he'll likely be listed as a full participant Wednesday, when the Colts release their first injury report of the season. Luck didn't report any setbacks with his surgically repaired shoulder during training camp, leaving the Colts optimistic that he'll provide a major lift to an offense that cratered without him under center in 2017.

Luck (foot) has been cleared to resume practicing Monday, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luck has been held out of practice this week while resting a minor foot injury that he played through in the Colts' third preseason game. He'll return for a full week of preparation ahead of a Week 1 home matchup with the Bengals.
